0. INTRODUCTION

This specification provides the definition of the Cargo/goods handling and movement message (HANMOV) 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 from a party to a warehouse/distribution center identifying the handling services and where required the movement of specified goods, limited to warehouses within the jurisdiction of the distribution centre.


1.2. Field of Application

The Cargo/goods handling and movement message may be used for both national and international trade. It is based on universal commercial practice and is not dependent on the type of business or industry.


1.3. Principles

This message addresses the indirect flow of goods between seller and buyer through a warehouse/distribution center.

The functions of this message are limited to:

The movement of specified goods relates here to the area where control of the goods is to be exercised from the arrival of the goods to the distribution center until the departure of the goods from the distribution center to another party. It can include movements between warehouses within the jurisdiction of the distribution center. Other movements of goods will be given by the relevant instruction messages, i.e. IFTMIN (Instruction message) and Instruction For Despatch (message under development).

The functions Assembly/Disassembly are meant to make the goods ready for delivery to the final customer, they are not part of the actual manufacturing or assembly process.

A number of generic transport terms are described in the Annex (glossary of terms).
