Introduction
Transaction Set 404: Bill of Lading
Functional Group: SR
This transaction set contains the format and establishes the data contents of the Rail Carrier
Shipment Information Transaction Set (404) for the use within the context of an Electronic Data
Interchange (EDI) environment. The transaction set can be used to transmit rail carrier specific
bill of lading information to a railroad. It is the initial tender of a shipment between a consignor
and a rail carrier and can be used as notification of equipment release and/or a legal bill of lading.
Burlington Northern Santa Fe will accept the Rail Carrier Shipment Information published by
DISA for ASC X12. The following guidelines are all-inclusive and identify unique requirements
for use of the ASC X12 404 transaction set when transmitting data to Burlington Northern Santa
Fe.
To obtain X12 standards and documentation, contact:
Data Interchange Standards Association, Inc.
1800 Diagonal Road, Suite 355
Alexandria, VA 22314-2840

BNSF 404 Implementation Guideline
Rail Carrier Shipment Information / Bill of Lading Processing
The general steps in processing 404s electronically are initiated when the customer enters or
creates bill of lading in their computer. This information, or data, is then formatted into the ASC
X12 404 transaction set. This formatting may be performed by you, the customer, or your third
party value added network. After formatting, the transaction is delivered to Burlington Northern
Santa Fe or your third party value added network. The BNSF computer then performs a security
edit and certain basic alpha-numeric edits and determines that all mandatory elements and
segments are present.
This becomes the document that will create a rail carrier waybill which will be used in releasing
your equipment, set up a revenue document, create the operating instructions, and if an interline
shipment, pass the information on to the next rail carrier.
EDI Acknowledgments
BNSF will generate a 997 Functional Acknowledgment to you, the customer, indicating if the
electronic format met all requirements for processing. If rejected at this level, the document will
not be processed any further.
BNSF will generate a 824 Application Acknowledgement to you, the customer, indicating that the
bill of lading information was used by Burlington Northern Santa Fe's application systems. It is
designed to accomodate the business need of reporting the acceptance, rejection, or acceptance
with change of the bill of lading.

The Transaction
A transaction set is used to describe the electronic transmission of single document between one
company's computer and another company's computer.
EDI transactions are defined by segments, and each item within the segment becomes a data
element. Data Element Type, Requirement Designator, and Length are described below. These
identifiers are listed for each Data Element throughout the remainder of this guide.
Data Element Type
Specifies the characters that may be used.
Nn
R
Numeric
N indicates that it is numeric; n indicates decimal place.
Decimal
R indicates an optional decimal point for integer values or a
required decimal for decimal values. BNSF can accept positive
and decimal values.
ID
Identifier
A specific code taken from a table defined in the Data Element
Dictionary such as unit of measure.
AN
String
A series of alpha/numeric characters, such as a company name.
DT
Date
YYYYMMDD (ISO standard date)
TM Time
HHMM express in 24-hour clock format.
Data Element Requirement Designator
Indicates when this element must be included in an electronic document.
M
C

General Information
To establish an "Electronic Data Interchange Partnership" with Burlington Northern Santa Fe, you
may contact your BNSF Representative or call BNSF's Customer Support number
(1-800-809-2673 Option 4).
The minimum requirements for EDI participation are:
Personal Computer (IBM compatible)
2400 Baud Modem (Hayes compatible)
Single line telephone (Data capable)*
* BNSF offers toll-free 800 service for data transmission.
Also necessary is a translation program or software capable of converting your billing information
into the proper EDI format.
If a personal computer is your choice of hardware, BNSF offers software which will allow you to
create and transmit your billing information. If you desire to use existing personal computer
programs to create your billing or, if you are a mainframe computer user, you may wish to create
your own translation software or purchase one of the many commercial software packages
available.
Another option for establishing an EDI partnership with Burlington Northern Santa Fe is to utilize
the services of a "Third Party" vendor.
Whatever selection your business needs dictate, Burlington Northern Santa Fe will assist you in
establishing your EDI partnership.

Transmission Block) at the end. Subsequent text should also be bounded by an STX and ETB,
with an ETX (End of Text) and EOT (End of Transmission) closing the transmission.
Transmissions should be as follows:
STX

NOTE: Spaces must be used when maximum length requirement is not met by the contents of the data element.
Spaces are shown above in the example by periods (.) . These should not be part of the ISA but used here to
illustrate that spaces are required even if no data is supplied within the position This segment needs to be
exactly 106 positions long - counting the ISA, all the delimiters, all the mandatory fields plus a Hex 15
immediately following ISA 16 to indicate carriage return/line feed

BNSF uses first 6 characters of the
equipment number. If a 7th digit is
present, it is assumed to be an
intermodal check digit.
BNSF's systems uses equipment initial and number as the key to find a match within 4 days of its
original receipt. Other matching keys are bill of lading number and origin/destination. If an origin
point is attempted to be corrected, customer must supply the above information, including the
waybill number and date (ZC104 and ZC105).
Corrections are automatically applied on intermodal shipments if its received prior to equipment
ramping or assignment. Corrections to carload shipments are handled on a manual basis. The
corrected bill comes in, creates a voided transaction, and sends a printed copy to Customer
Waybill Center for reviewal.
Each correction will create an interline 417 to include the ZC1 segment and BNSF forwards on to
interline carriers if applicable and/or as long as BNSF still has responsibility of the car.

If customer intends for the railroad to weigh the shipment, the BX01 should reflect R, and the
N704 (weight qualifier) should reflect E (estimate).
BNSF application systems converts the BX01 value to a two character equivalent shown below:
A agreement weights convert to PW
D destination weights convert to DW
R railroad scale weights convert to EW
S shipper scale weights convert to SW
T tariff weights convert to TW
N no weight required converts to CW
M manifest weight converts to SW
O official weight converts to WA
U mutually defined weight converts to CW

FUNCTIONAL ACKNOWLEDGMENT

BNSF 404 Implementation Guideline
Introduction
Transaction Set 997: Functional Acknowledgement
Functional Group: FA
This transaction set contains the format and establishes the data contents of the Functional
Acknowledgement Transaction Set (997) for use within the context of an Electronic Data
Interchange (EDI) environment. The transaction set can be used to define the control structures
for a set of acknowledgements to indicate the results of the syntactical analysis of the
electronically encoded documents. The encoded documents are the transaction sets, which are
grouped in functional groups, used in defining transactions for business data interchange. This
standard does not cover the semantic meaning of the information encoded in the transaction sets.
Burlington Northern Santa Fe will accept the Rail Carrier Shipment Information published by
DISA for ASC X12. The following guidelines are all-inclusive and identify unique requirements
for use of the ASC X12 997 transaction set when transmitting data to Burlington Northern Santa
Fe.
To obtain X12 standards and documentation, contact:
Data Interchange Standards Association, Inc.
1800 Diagonal Road, Suite 355
Alexandria, VA 22314-2840
703-548-7005
116
BNSF 404 Implementation Guideline
Basic Formatting Rules
In reading and formatting 997 messages, some segments are not mandatory. For example, if all
transactions are accepted without error, only the AK1 and AK9 segments are necessary. If,
however, transactions are rejected or accepted with errors, detail regarding these messages should
be formatted in the AK2, AK3, AK4, and AK5. This detailed is used to determine how/why the
messages were rejected or accepted with error, thus the problems can be readily identified and
corrected for future transmission.

NOTE: Spaces must be used when maximum length requirement is not met by the contents of the data element.
Spaces are shown above in the example by periods (.) . These should not be part of the ISA but used here to
illustrate that spaces are required even if no data is supplied within the position This segment needs to be
exactly 106 positions long - counting the ISA, all the delimiters, all the mandatory fields plus a Hex 15
immediately following ISA 16 to indicate carriage return/line feed

APPENDIX 1 - Use of ISA headers with Railinc
When using ISA headers with Railinc, the values within the data elements are different. Railinc's
requirements for the ISA are as follows:
- The ISA01 is always 04 for Railinc, otherwise should be 00.
- The ISA02 should be pulled from list in documentation for Railinc, otherwise blank.
- The ISA03 should be 00 unless we are using passwords, then 01.
- The ISA04 should be the password is ISA03 is 01.
- The ISA06 is used at Railinc for all routing. This field should
be the 4 character abbreviation of the third party (ex, "UPT ")
if applicable, plus the Railinc defined 4 character abbreviation
for the partner. It is possible that the partner abbreviation
would not be required when using third parties (depends on the
3rd party). Non Railinc partners can define this value as
they wish.
When translating messages from ISA to TRAIN II headers, this field will contain the transaction
set identifier preceded by ‘‘SW’’. For a functional acknowledgment, the transaction set identifier
will be preceded by ‘‘FA’’. (IE: SW417 or FA417).

APPENDIX 2 - Intermodal Safe Container Act
Act Overview
On April 9, 1997, the amended Intermodal Safe Container Act went into effect. The Act,
implemented by the Federal Highway Administration, impacts all intermodal shipments with gross
cargo weight of more than 29,000 pounds (including packing materials, pallets, and dunnage).
The purpose of the Act is to minimize overweight vehicles on the highway and provide recourse
for a motor carrier if fined for an overloaded shipment.
Safe Container Act Key Points
The Act requires certification of weight, certifying party, unit initial and number, commodity
description, and date of certification (or transfer of data) on intermodal shipments with gross
cargo weight over 29,000 pounds.
The party tendering the load can certify the load by providing a bill of lading or other shipping
document, including the above elements. The Act states a copy of certification is not required to
accompany the load. Weight certification information is expected to be transmitted by normal
billing channels and passed to the appropriate carriers in the route of a shipment.
Exempt from Certification
Intermodal movements exempt from the certification are shipments with one motor carrier
performing all the highway transportation, or assuming responsibility for overweight fines if
incurred by another motor carrier handling the highway transportation. To help clarify, those
shipments with the same shipper or motor carrier handling both the origin and destination drayage
will not require certification information.
BNSF Intermodal Billing Requirements
BNSF's approach to the required Safe Container elements, in regards to rail billing, is stated
below:
1) The actual gross cargo weight. Presently stated in the "BNSF Intermodal Rules and
Policies Guide", gross cargo weight is required on billing for all shipments.
BNSF will deem weight on your billing to be the certified weight, unless otherwise stated.
This is being done to eliminate the need for you to send additional information on your
billing in conjunction with Safe Container Act requirements. If you need to correct the
gross cargo weight, it can be updated until the unit is deramped or interchanged.
Many shippers (parties tendering billing) have expressed the desire to remain in control of
the billing information and any associated changes, so weight certifying information will
not be accepted when a shipment is checked in at the gate. Shippers do not want changes
made to billing from documents deposited at the gate. Thus, only the party tendering the
bill of lading will be allowed to update any of the billing information.
2) A reasonable description of the contents in a trailer or container. This information is
also presently required on the bill of lading and nothing new is required. The Act states
'FAK' commodity descriptions will be restricted commencing the year 2001.
131
BNSF 404 Implementation Guideline
3) A certifying party. BNSF will automatically deem the shipper as the certifying party,
which will help eliminate the need to send additional billing information. If the certifying
party is someone other than the shipper, it must be relayed by normal billing methods
(either EDI or Fax). See the "Billing Options" below for more details. In EDI, the
certifying party would be formatted in the N1*PV segment. BNSF will apply our own
name in the N1*CV if no N1*PV certifying name is found on the bill.
Based on the key Safe Container elements, no separate documentation is necessary.
Unless otherwise specified on your billing, BNSF will consider the bill of lading gross
cargo weight,unit initial and number, commodity description, and date as certified by the
shipper. If providing the date and time of certification on your EDI billing, it would be
formatted in the DTM*458 segment. If BNSF converts certification information, we
apply our own name in the N1*CV and build a DTM*ICF using the bill of lading date and
time.
Billing Options
The certifying information can be tendered electronically using the EDI versions 3050 and 3060.
All other EDI versions today do not support the Safe Container Act required data elements.
However, if you do not presently use 3050 or 3060, some EDI options are: 1) Use your present
EDI package. Weight and date will be deemed certified with the shipper being listed as the
certifying party (formatted in an N1*PV segment), unless this information is updated with a
correction (either EDI or Fax). 2) Contact the BNSF EDI group to upgrade to a 3050 or 3060
EDI version. 3) Work with Kleinschmidt or your EDI translation vendor to convert your billing
to the 3050 or 3060 version with the Safe Container data elements. 4) Use R-EDI, the industry
PC billing package. R-EDI does accommodate Safe Container Act requirements.
To answer your EDI questions, please contact your BNSF EDI representative at
1-800-809-2673, option 4.
As always, Safe Container Act data elements and any associated changes must be clearly
identifiable on your fax billing documents. Fax billing should be sent to 1-800-786-2455
