0. INTRODUCTION

This specification provides the definition of the Bayplan/stowage plan total numbers message (BAPLTE) 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 transmit information about the total numbers of equipment and quantity of goods on a means of transport. The message can be exchanged between (liner's) agents, tonnage centers, stevedores and ships masters/operators (see section 1.3 for more details).


1.2. Field of Application

This message may be applied for both national and international trade. It is based on universal practice and is not dependent on the type of business or industry.


1.3. Principles

In the shipping industry the BAPLTE message can be used between partners as indicated below:

ships/liner ============== 1 ============== ships/liner agents =======2===== =====13====== agents | | | | | 3 | | | | | | | | | | I tonnage ==5 ====== | | ======11= tonnage I centre =========|==|=====|===|==6===== centre | | | | | | | | 7 | | | | | 4 | | | | | | | | =============|==|==8==|===|============= | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | stevedore============|==|==9==|===|======== stevedore

| | | | | | | | | | | | ====10=== ships master/operator ===12===

PORT OF DEPARTURE(PD) NEXT PORT OF CALL(NC)

1) Agent (PD) to agent (NC) 2) Agent (PD) to ships master/operator (PD) 3) Agent (PD) to tonnage centre (PD) 4) Agent (PD) to stevedore (PD) 5) Tonnage centre (PD) to ships master/operator (PD) 6) Tonnage centre (PD) to tonnage centre (NC) 7) Tonnage centre (PD) to stevedore (PD) 8) Stevedore (PD) to tonnage centre 9) Stevedore (PD) to stevedore (NC) 10) Stevedore (PD) to ships master/operator (PD) 11) Ships master/operator to tonnage centre (NC) 12) Ships master/operator to stevedore (NC) 13) Ships master/operator to agent (NC)

The above gives only one set of communication channels per organisation but in practice there will be a combination of one or more channels per organisation from or to port of departure/next port of call.
