This specification provides the definition of the Transport equipment stock and profile report message (COEDOR) to be used in Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) between trading partners involved in administration, commerce and transport.
1.1. Functional definition
A message to report transport equipment that is either in stock by the sending party (i.e. a terminal, depot or container freight station) or is part of the fleet of transport equipment being operated by a shipping line. It is also used to report the profiles of newly acquired transport equipment. This message is part of a total set of container-related messages. These messages serve to facilitate the intermodal handling of containers and other transport equipment 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'.

Business area: Pre- and on-carriage transport of transport equipment.
Sending functions include: Container terminal (seaside), inland terminal (landside), container freight station, container depot, container repair facility, shipping line or shipping line agent.
Receiving functions include: Shipping line or shipping line agent, tonnage centre, logistics centre, freight forwarder, container terminal, inland terminal, container freight station, container depot.
In the context of the 'Guide to the scenario of EDIFACT messages' (as referred to at the start of section 1) the following guidelines, rules and functionality apply to this Transport equipment stock and profile report message:
The Transport equipment profile report can be identified by the following data element:
A combination of the following data elements can be used to relate the business data contained in the Container acceptance order:
The transport sub-working group (D4) has developed recommendations for a harmonised implementation of this message through its subgroup ITIGG (International Transport Implementation Guidelines Group).
