Purpose of the message: The COSTOR message is intended to provide a packing or unpacking facility with details of cargo items to be stuffed (ie. packed) into specified shipping containers, or stripped (ie. unpacked) from specified containers.
Parties involved: The COSTOR is mainly sent from Carrier/Liner Agent to Container Freight Station (ie. stuffing / stripping location).
In my EDI environment COSTOR is not used at all; in case of stuffing/stripping moves CODECO is normally used: a specific post about this topic will be issued later.
I have drafted a COSTOR sample based on the ITIGG MIG vers. 1.2. Here below you can find an extract: the full sample will be posted and commented subsequently on the forum in the UN/EDIFACT Sample section.(...)
