In which situations can I specify another type of transport equipment than a container?

You can pre-notify various types of equipment at ferry operators and at some terminals for breakbulk cargo.

Based on the booking number you provide, our system recognises whether you are able to specify other types of equipment than containers.

A booking number of a ferry operator can be recognised by the first 4 positions of the booking number:

  • For CLdN, this is ‘CLVW’
  • For DFDS, this is ‘DFDS’
  • For Stena Line, this is ‘STNL’
  • For P&O Ferries, this is ‘PONF’

PLEASE NOTE: You may have received a booking number from P&O Ferries that starts with EU, such as EU12345678 (example). If that is the case, you must place the letters PONF before the booking number when entering the booking number, so PONFEU12345678 (example).

After entering a booking number with one of these ferry operators, you are able to specify equipment numbers other than a container number.
