Container gate-in/gate-out report message
This specification provides the definition of the Container gate-in/gate-out report message (CODECO) to be used in Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) between trading partners involved in administration, commerce and transport.
1.1. Functional Definition
A message by which a terminal, depot, etc. confirms that the containers specified have been delivered or picked up by the inland carrier (road, rail or barge). This message can also be used to report internal terminal container movements (excluding loading and discharging the vessel).
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 gate-in/gate-out report 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.
Business area: Pre- and on-carriage transport of containers/equipment.
Sending functions include: Container depot, Inland terminal, Container freight station
Receiving functions include: Shipping agent, Logistic center, Shipper (copy), Freight forwarder (copy) and Inland carrier (copy)
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 gate-in/gate-out report message:
The ordering customer agent, coded is needed to supplement the unique identification only in the next situation: the agent acts on behalf of several ordering customers issuing the same range of reference numbers for each customer. E.g. the ship's agent acts on behalf of several shipping lines issuing for each shipping line the same range of numbers.
See UNTDID, Part 4, Chapter 2.6 UN/ECE UNSM - General Introduction, Section 1.
