This specification provides the definition of the Equipment damage and repair estimate message (DESTIM) to be used in Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) between trading partners involved in administration, commerce and transport.
A message for use by the container repair, shipping and leasing industry. It may be used by a container equipment repair depot to send an owner or user a description of damages to the equipment, as an estimate of the repair actions and costs needed to rectify such damages. A recipient owner may forward the estimate to a lessee. The message may also be used by an owner or lessee as an authorization message to the repair depot to perform the repairs indicated in the estimate, and as an acknowledgment of his willingness to pay for those repairs indicated in the estimate for his account.
The Equipment damage and repair estimate 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.
It is envisaged that the Equipment Damage and Repair Estimate Message may be used as follows:
1. By an equipment depot to the owner or lessee of damaged equipment after the equipment has been returned by a lessee, in order to indicate needed repairs and to request authorization to perform repair work.
2. By an equipment owner to a lessee to provide repair cost estimates, and to request the lessee's acknowledgment of willingness to pay costs allocated to lessee's account.
3. By an equipment owner or lessee to a repair depot to give authorization to have the damaged equipment repaired.
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.
