COREOR, PIN number

For security issues, you might wish to add a PIN number to your COREOR message.

PIN number can be stored in RFF segment; in the above sample, I used qualifier RE (Release Number) as c506.1153 in order to assign to my container a PIN number:

EQD+CN+GEKU1234567+22G1:102:5++3+5'

RFF+CN:SAL/01'
 
RFF+RE:QY879' 
RFF+SQ:0001'
MEA+AAE+G+KGM:23817'

UN/LOCODE

UN/LOCODE is a geographic coding scheme developed and maintained by UNECE a unit of the United Nations

It assigns aproximatly 40.000 code elements to locations names of ports, airports, rail and road terminals, postal exchange offices, border crossing points and other locations used in trade and transport in 234 countries.

UN/LOCODE
typically have 5 characters. The first 2 are letters, and come from the ISO 3166-1 country codes. Normally 3 letters will follow, but if there are not enough combinations, also numbers can be used.

Some samples: 
  • DEBER for Berlin in Germany (DE) 
  • NLAMS for Amsterdam in NL 
  • USNYC for New York City in US
In order to browse through LOCODEs you can use the useful web services developed by UNECE or Antwerp Port Authority.

I would like to thanks www.knowledgerush.com as source for this post.


COREOR, general infos

Purpose of the message: COREOR is used to release full import/export containers.

Parties involved: the message is normally sent by Carrier/Liner Agent to Terminal Operator.

I have seen several Carriers to use the COREOR to release empty transport equipment prior to packing but, based on ITIGG recommendations, COPARN should be used.

Here below a very basic sample of COREOR message:
