GS1 Guidelines for the Transport Pick-up / Drop-off Request and Confirmation Transactions
Transport Pick-up / Drop-off Request message enables the request for an appointment to collect goods at a pick-up location or to deliver goods at a drop-off location.
Initial information about the collection and delivery of goods may already have been exchanged in the transport instruction. However, the party where the goods are collected (consignor / pick-up location /shipper / ship-from location) or delivered (consignee / drop-off location / receiver / ship-to location) will not in all cases be aware of the transport instruction details or they might have changed.
In the pick-up / drop-off request the carrier can specify delays or other relevant status information that might impact the time of collection or the time of delivery.
Transport Pick-up / Drop-off Confirmation
This business message enables the confirmation for an appointment to collect goods at a pick-up location or to deliver goods at a drop-off location.
In the pick-up / drop-off confirmation besides the detailed time and location (dock door) additional handling instructions might be included.
