The following is an outline of what is expected when receiving VICS 214 inbound transportation carrier shipment information from a small package carrier. For a definition of the segments, please see the VICS retail industry conventions and guidelines for EDI..

Deviation from the standard VICS 214 format described herein may negate our ability to receive data from carrier trading partners.

The following segments are based on VICS 4010. Refer to individual manuals for differences in standards. If you need assistance with this mapping, or to test this document, please contact the FASST office at (973) 305-3481.


Note: Functional Acknowledgments will be sent for all documents transmitted to Federated by vendors.
