Users from importers, agents, freight forwarders, inter-modal terminals and rail operators who has approval to use the Rail Tagging and Release service may release a container to rail if they have the Electronic Import Delivery Order (EIDO) Personal Identification Number (PIN) for that container. Users from shipping lines may only release their own containers.
Container terminal operators may not release containers.Note: no-one but the users belonging to same organisation who sent the tag request may alter or update the tag.
A container can be released to rail when:
it has been tagged for rail; and
the EIDO PIN has been received from the shipping line.
Receipt of the EIDO PIN is usually the event which triggers the user to release the container.
