0. INTRODUCTION

This specification provides the definition of the International transport freight costs and other charges message (IFTFCC) to be used in Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) between trading partners involved in administration, commerce and transport.


1. SCOPE


1.1. Functional definition

A message specifying freight, handling and transport costs and other related charges between transport service providers and their customers.


1.2. Field of application

The International transport freight costs and other charges message may be used for both national and international applications. It is based on universal practice related to administration, commerce and transport, and is not dependent on the type of business or industry.


1.3. | Principles

The message will enable the parties involved in transport operations to indicate the various charges and costs. The structure of this information will enable parties to relate the charges and freight costs information received to the original instruction given by other transport messages (e.g. IFTMCS) to allow a one-by-one verification of the statement of charges.

The transport sub-working group (D4) has developed recommendations for a harmonised implementation of this message through its subgroup ITIGG (International Transport Implementation Guidelines Group). Users implementing the message are strongly advised to apply these recommendations, which may be obtained from the D4 secretariat.
