EDIFACT D00B 2003-03 SMDG BAPLIE 2.1 manual

Sheet 'Load list'

The 'Load list' parser reads the first cell in the first row of the sheet. The value 'CONTAINER_ID' identifies a detailed load list, whereas the value 'CONTAINER_COUNT' is taken as a projected load list, which will be expanded into individual containers. All columns after column M are ignored.

Columns/Fields have fixed order, they must appear in the order as indicated in the following table. The status of a field is either M=mandatory, O=optional, or D=dependent if required in the presence or absence of other fields.

Column Place Field name Status Content type Example Comment

A 0 CONTAINER_COUNT M INT 37 COPRAR projected load list only, rows without number of estimated CONTAINER_COUNT are skipped silently, otherwise each row is expanded into CONTAINER_COUNT containers
B 1 VOYYAGE_NO M STRING V03746 any text possible
C 2 POL M load port CNTAG UN/LOCODE - COPRAR 1.2 restricted to same load port, BAPLIE 2.1 allows different load ports
