Business area: Pre- and on-carriage transport of containers/equipment
Sending functions include: Inland carrier
Receiving functions include: Container depot, Inland terminal, Container freight station, Container terminal, Carrier's agent, Forwarder, Shipper, Consignee
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 pre-notification message:
