Purpose of the message: BAPLIE is used to transmit infos about all occupied places onboard of a vessel. Although the message can also transmit infos about 'empty places', this feature is not generally used.
Parties involved: Tonnage Center, Shipowner, Terminal operator.
The way it works: Generally BAPLIE is transmitted to the terminal operator of the next vessel call to retrieve all the relevant infos. Subsequently:
- Infos about equipment discharged will be removed;
- Infos about equipment loded will be added;
- Location about equipment shifted will be changed.
At vessel's sailing time, updated BAPLIE will be transmitted to: shipowner, tonange center and terminal operator of the next vessel call. Generally message is also transmitted to the vessel in order to replace the 'paper' master-bayplan.
Infos about 'Remain On Board' (i.e. equipment not handled during discharge/load operations) must remain unchanged and then transmitted to the next vessel call.
