DeliveryMessage Overview

The DeliveryMessage e-Document enables the sender to describe the
contents and configuration of a shipment at various levels of detail.
The DeliveryMessage e-Document specifies the details of a delivery that is
either being despatched or will be despatched at a later time. The
attribute DeliveryMessageType controls the usage of the DeliveryMessage.
A seller can send a DeliveryMessage to one or more receivers, including
the ship-to and/or buyer parties. Delivery messages are also sent to and
from logistics partners.
The DeliveryMessage can be used as a response to call cff, delivery
instruction and loading instruction when a delivery from a warehouse is
requested. A DeliveryMessage e-Document fulfils the same or similar role
as a delivery note, manifest, weigh list, tally sheet, advanced shipping
notice, loading order, or packing specification.


The Scope of the DeliveryMessage

The DeliveryMessage includes:
• The date on which goods were despatched or will be ready for
despatch to a single ship-to party.
• Consignment details such as purchase order, product, package
information, and weights.
• Tracking details such as the route of delivery.
• One or more DeliveryLeg(s) specifying the delivery route. Each
DeliveryLeg may include transport information that details the mode,
vehicle, unit, and loading information.
Using this information, the receiver can:
• Begin the customs clearance process, for international shipments.
• Prepare for receipt of goods.
• Reconcile the physically delivered goods with those reported.
• Reconcile the list of delivered goods with the invoice for those goods.
• Update stock records
A DeliveryMessage cannot be used to return goods to the seller.


DeliveryMessageType [attribute]

DeliveryMessageType defines the type of DeliveryMessage.
This item is restricted to the following list:

A delivery message type that contains optional routing information, quantities
at the DeliveryMessageLineItem level, and details at the
DeliveryMessageLineItemDetail level. The seller uses a DeliveryMessage to
provide delivery details to the ship-to party and tracking information.

A delivery message type that contains detailed routing information, quantities
at the DeliveryMessageLineItem level and optionally details at the
DeliveryMessageLineItemDetail level. The seller uses the
InitialShipmentAdvice to provide preliminary notification of shipment routing
and quantities (can be used as an advanced notice of delivery). The quantities
indicated may not necessarily be delivered—for example, if there is damage in
transit or the delivery is rerouted to another destination.

A delivery message type that contains a specification of loaded goods on a
transport unit (e.g. container, rail wagon). A loading specification
(LoadedSpecification) can contain goods belonging to many suppliers and
buyers and is normally referring to a Loading Instruction.

A delivery message type that contains a specification of goods, that are
dispatched and will be delivered to a warehouse. A ShipmentAdvice can refer
to a Delivery Instruction Sequence or a CallOff, but is normally also used for
notifying a receiving warehouse operator of shipments to the warehouse.

The forwarding agreement or carrying agreement that is used as a receipt for
cargo and as a contract of carriage.
