A container can be tagged by any user from an importer, agent, freight forwarder, inter-modal terminal or rail operator who has approval to use the Rail Tagging and Release service, provided that the container has not already been tagged by another user and provided they have permission from a shipping line.

A shipping line can tag containers that belong to them.Note: no-one but the users belonging to same organisation who made the tag request may alter or update a tag.

Container terminal operators may not tag containers.

Rail Release and Tagging may take place when

  • the shipping line has sent a bay plan to the terminal; and

  • the container is not yet discharged from the vessel, that is, it isn't yet in the yard

     

The bay plan describes the containers on board the vessel (including all container numbers and where each is located).
