0. INTRODUCTION

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. SCOPE


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) and to report the change in status of container(s) without those containers having physically been moved.

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 applications. It is based on universal practice related to administration, commerce and transport, 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 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 message contents can be uniquely identified by a combination of the following data elements:
  • ordering customer, coded (NAD)
  • ordering customer agent, coded (NAD)
  • container announcement reference (being the release order reference number or the acceptance order reference number) (RFF)

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.

  • A copy of this message may be sent e.g. to the shipper, freight forwarder, the inland waterways and rail carriers, according to the communication addresses as mentioned in the Container announcement.
  • One message may contain several containers.
  • A supplementary container reference (container sequence number) is used to refer to the information of the container(s) in the Container announcement, if the container prefix and number was not completed in that message.
  • An indicator for the transport status (i.e. export, import, transhipment or continental) is to be completed on container level (EQD-segment).
  • One shipping line can be specified on message level.
  • The seagoing vessel and sea voyage number can be specified on message level.
  • Inland transport details can be specified for each individual container.
  • For each container its place of discharge or its position of loading (stowage cell) in/on the means of inland transport can be specified.
  • In case of export the port of discharge and any port of transhipment can be specified for each individual container.
  • The date/time of pick-up and final address of positioning or the date/time of delivery must be given for each container.
  • For each container seals can be specified affixed by the shipper, container freight station, terminal, sea carrier and Customs.
