0. INTRODUCTION

This specification provides the definition of the Container stuffing/stripping confirmation message (COSTCO) to be used in Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) between trading partners involved in administration, commerce and transport.


1. SCOPE


1.1. Functional definition

Confirmation that specified goods/consignments have been stuffed into or stripped from LCL-containers. This message is part of a total set of container-related messages. These messages serve to facilitate the intermodal handling of containers by streamlining the information exchange. The business scenario for the container messages is clarified in a separate document, called: 'Guide to the scenario of EDIFACT container messages'.


1.2. Field of application

The Container stuffing/stripping confirmation 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

Business area: Pre- and on-carriage transport of containers/equipment

Sending functions include: Container freight station

Receiving functions include: Shipping agent, Logistic center

In the context of the 'Guide to the scenario of EDIFACT container messages' (as referred to at the start of section 1) the following guidelines, rules and functionality apply to this Container stuffing/stripping confirmation message:

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.
