Recently an EDI customer reported me an issue related to the weights stated into BAPLIE / COARRI of my production environment.
I was a little bit surprised in discover a coarse translation error in MEA segment concerning c502.6313 (ie. measurement dimension): I used the qualifier G (ie. weight of goods including packing but excluding the carrier's equipment) in order to report the weight of the goods plus carrier's equipment.
Checking on the ITIGG guidelines I found out the new qualifier EGW which is used in order to declare the gross weight including carrier's equipment.
Here below how the change affected my EDI transmissions:
