Milestones

The OceanIO platform has two different sets of event type codes which are aligned with DCSA. One is for events related to the equipment, and the other is for events related to the transport. When you get an event from the OceanIO platform the field “event_type” will be “EQUIPMENT” or “TRANSPORT”.

If it is an equipment event, the OceanIO milestone is found in the field “equipment_event_type_code”. Here is an overview of the possible values and an explanation of their meaning:

GTIN (Gate in): The action, when a container is introduced into a controlled area like a port – or inland terminal. Gate in has been completed once the operator of the area is legally in possession of the container.

GTOT (Gate out): The action, when a container is removed from a controlled area like a port – or inland terminal. Gate-out has been completed once the possession of the container has been transferred from the operator of the terminal to the entity, who is picking up the container.

LOAD (Loaded): The action of lifting cargo or a container on board of the mode of transportation. Load is complete once the cargo or container has been lifted on board the mode of transport and secured.

DISC (Discharged): The action of lifting cargo or containers off a mode of transport. Discharge is the opposite of load.

STUF (Stuffing): Stuffing is the process of loading cargo into a container or in/onto another piece of equipment. The process is completed once the equipment is sealed and ready for loading onto the next transport leg.

STRP (Stripping): Stripping is the process of unloading cargo from a container or another piece of equipment. It is the oposite of stuffing.

OTHR (Other): This is for events regarding the equipment that did not match any of the above.

If it is a transport event, the OceanIO milestone is found in the field “transport_event_type_code”. Here is an overview of the possible values and an explanation of their meaning:

ARRI (Arrival): Arrival is the event which occurs, when a mode of transport reaches its final or intermediate destination, and the mode of transport is ready for load/discharge operations to begin at the specified location. In the case of vessel, a vessel has arrived once it is berthed at the port terminal.

DEPA (Departure): The action when a container has embarked towards its final or intermediate destination.

TRSH (Transshipment): The action when a container is discharged from one vessel and loaded onto another in the same port.

OTHR (Other): This is for events regarding the transport that did not match any of the above.
