BAPLIE (BayPlan Including Empties)

The BAPLIE message is a widely used EDIFACT message in the shipping industry. It is used by and between various parties to advise the exact stowage positions of the cargo on board of an ocean vessel. It is currently and mainly used for container cargo. The message generally contains information about the means of transport (typically a container vessel), including the location of the transport, and location of the container.

Besides the container number and exact position on board, general information regarding the containers is also specified such as weight and hazardous cargo class. The information can be used for creating vessel discharge and pre-planning containers prior to their arrival.
