The container loading/unloading order ensures transparent communication concerning the number of containers to be collected and the time of collection.
The barge operator sends a COPINO message to the terminal operator with all the details of the containers to be loaded or unloaded. After handling, the terminal operator sends a CODECO message confirming that the containers have actually been loaded or unloaded. This permits shorter turnaround time on the terminal together with a precise estimate of the manpower and equipment needed.
- Avoids double entry and errors
- Faster reporting
- Orders can be given later, since manual input by the terminal operator is not necessary
