0. INTRODUCTION
This specification provides the definition of the Bayplan/stowage plan occupied and empty locations message (BAPLIE) to be used in Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) between trading partners involved in administration, commerce and transport.

1. SCOPE

1.1 Functional definition
A message to transmit information about equipment and goods on a means of transport, including their location on the means of transport. The message can be exchanged between (liner's) agents, tonnage centers, stevedores and ships masters/operators (see section 1.3 for more details).

1.2 Field of application
The Bayplan/stowage plan occupied and empty locations message may be used for both national and international applications.
It is based on universal practice related to administration, commerce and transport, and is not dependent on the type of business or industry.

1.3 Principles
In the shipping industry the BAPLIE message can be used between partners as indicated below:

ships/liner ============== 1 ============== ships/liner
agents      =======2=====     =====13====== agents
|    |                  |     |
|    3                  |     |

        ====10=== ships master/operator ===12===

PORT OF DEPARTURE(PD)            NEXT PORT OF CALL(NC)

1)  Agent(PD) to agent (NC)
2)  Agent(PD) to ships master/operator(PD)
3)  Agent(PD) to tonnage centre (PD)
4)  Agent(PD) to stevedore (PD)
5)  Tonnage centre(PD) to ships master/operator (PD)
6)  Tonnage centre(PD) to tonnage centre (NC)
7)  Tonnage centre(PD) to stevedore (PD)
8)  Stevedore (PD) to tonnage centre (NC)
9)  Stevedore (PD) to stevedore (NC)
10) Stevedore (PD) to ships master/operator (PD)
11) Ships master/operator to tonnage centre (NC)
12) Ships master/operator to stevedore (NC)
13) Ships master/operator to agent (NC)

The above gives only one set of communication channels per organisation but in practice there will be a combination of one or more channels per organisation from or to port of departure/next port of call.

- The message will contain only one vessel/voyage combination, giving details regarding carrier, mode of transport, means of transport, equipment, location on the means of transport, goods descriptions and properties of equipment and/or goods.

- The message can be used to transmit information about occupied locations on the means of transport, however information about empty locations may be added.

- The bayplan message BAPLTE must be used to transmit information about total numbers of equipment and quantity of goods on a means of transport.
