Electronic Data Interchange Ronald van den Broek
EDI: the international standard EDI stands for Electronic Data Interchange, an international standard for information exchange. EDI is used in industries where the accuracy of complex and high density information exchange among parties is crucial. EDI has been developed in the 80’s and has become the international standard for information exchange in the shipping industry. Standards have been developed by the Standard Message Development Group (SMDG) a working group of the United Nations
EDI in the container business The increase of container volume requires electronic data exchange. Even after twenty years, the usage of EDI is not yet fully incorporated by all parties. The advantages of EDI can only be realised when the same rules are applicable to all parties. EDI reduces the number of mistakes, increases efficiency in the chain and improves the reliability of information. European Custom Authorities enforce mandatory electronic data exchange with the introduction of Export Control System (ECS) in June 2009
Use of EDI at ECT Inland Carriers have the possibility to send EDI through: Portinfolink EDIFACT ECT webconverter
Rules around the use of EDI Send EDI once in one time. Send EDI before sending the hardcopy. Check the EDI with the Inland Carrier Tool (website) or with the Copino Status Request (EDI). Feedback: The number of pre-notified containers minus all the negative APERAKS-messages make up the preliminary load/discharge list.
Fase out of the hardcopy On short notice, inland carriers with high quality EDI will be given the opportunity to leave the hardcopy out of the procedure, provided: ECT will always receive 100% correct EDI, no later than 8 hours prior to ETA CAL/CAR. Sending of a complementing “object summary” to cross check total numbers and details of specials. Also for prenotification of empty load containers on guideline
Relevant dates EDI has become mandatory from June 1st. A four month transition period (till October 1st) has started in order to enable a successful implementation. During this transition period the Quantity and Quality of your EDI will be monitored more closely than before.The results will be reported to you in order to optimize your pre-notification. As from the first of October, ECT will exclusively accept EDI pre-notified containers with a matching booking or release number.

Cargo Opening Time Cargo Closing Deepsea Piet van Dijk
Cargo Opening Deep-Sea As from the 1 st of May, ECT only accepts delivered containers for Deepsea vessels arriving within 8 days. This period of 8 days is based on the long term schedule of Deepsea vessels.
Cargo Closing Deep-Sea Administrative and physical closing 24 hours before the deep-sea vessel’s Estimated Time of Arrival (ETA) as per May 1 st 2008. These procedures are in line with anticipated EU regulations 2009
Administrative Closing Lines send load list latest 24 hours before ETA Load list received by ECT is final. Load list is complete and accurate. No changes, no voids, no dummy numbers. Split call: load terminal leading.
Physical Closing Containers not present are cancelled from load list. Containers that remain on the load list: –Containers from objects in operation –Late Arrival Requests –Inter terminal transport containers and containers from depot(s). –Custom blocked containers
Internal Operational Reality At a certain moment ECT internally needs to finalize closing procedure (blocked containers, depots, vessels in operation etc.). This is done at 6 hours before ETA of vessel (final closing). Changes in ETA (>24 hours Cargo Closing Time) of the vessel result in a change of all deadlines. The processed actions cannot be changed.
