0. INTRODUCTION

This specification provides the definition of the Container stock report message (COEDOR) 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 to report containers that are in stock of the sending party (i.e., a terminal, depot or container freight station).

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 stock 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.


1.3. Principles

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

Sending functions include: Container terminal (seaside), inland terminal (landside), container freight station, container depot

Receiving functions include: Shipping agent, logistic center, freight forwarder

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 stock report message:

  • The message contents can be uniquely identified by a combination of the following data elements:
  • message sender, coded (NAD)
  • stock check date/time (DTM)

A combination of the following data elements can be used to refer to business data contained in the Container announcement message:

  • ordering customer, coded (NAD)
  • ordering customer agent, coded (NAD)
  • container announcement reference (EQD/RFF)
  • The message can be sent on a regular basis; e.g. once or twice per day.
  • One message may contain several containers identified by their prefix and serial number.
  • For each container its stack position can be given, including the date and time of its checking by the stock reporter, and the date/time on which the container was delivered at the stock keeper's place.
  • Also the transport status (= export, import, transhipment or continental), full/empty indication and the condition (damage) of the container can be specified.
  • Depending on the transport status of the container additional information on the container can be given, such as carrier agent's reference, (seagoing) vessel, (sea) voyage number/indication and port of discharge.
  • Goods item details cannot be completed.
