In addition to container(s) to be discharged, message can also transmit infos about:

BAPLIE for rail

In North Europe BAPLIE is also used to transmit, to the Rail Terminal Operator, infos about all railway wagons in a train.

Here below you can find a message sample based on SMDG's MIG (Version 0.1): that's a DRAFT version (still to be discussed) but, in my opinion, it's the right way to start !

Some comments about 'Stowage Cell':
  • C517.3225: That's the first wagon in the train after the locomotive (01);
  • C519.3223: That's the wagon numer as painted on the wagon (218333585907);
  • C553.3233: On the wagon each 20FT slot has a number (01, 02...). In the sample container is allocated in the first slot (close to the locomotive).

BAPLIE: further comments

In the previous BAPLIE sample there is the following Stowage Instruction:
  • Container: GEKS1504090 (LOC.EQD segment as c237.8260);
  • Stowage Position: 0010112 (LOC.LOC segment as c517.3225);
  • Main-Carrige Transport: Vessel SALERNO PRIDE (TDT.TDT segment);
  • Loading Port: Cagliari (LOC.LOC segment as c517.3225);
  • Discharging Port: Salerno (LOC.LOC segment as c517.3225).
There are also other interesting infos into the file and I would suggest to use the BAPLIE Viewer in order to retrieve them.

BAPLIE is also used to give infos about Breakbulk cargo loaded onto vessels; let's have a look at the next sample to understand the way it works:

I have added a couple of extra infos in order to deal properly the Breakbulk:
  • Element 8053 on LOC.EQD segment now is BB (Breakbulk);
  • On LOC.DIM segment there are off-standard Breakbulk dimensions; in detail:
    890 cm over-length, 250 cm over-width and 220 cm over-height.
