How to add a record

The Add Record option is meant to assist you in adding one or more records or containers to the uploaded BAPLIE file. When working on the stowage plan, you may need to add additional container data to the file as it becomes available.

After a file has been uploaded to, the Dashboard will load. Click the Main Content option under the Visualization tab in the Function Menu to see the BAPLIE file content in a table format.  

Once the Main Content screen loads, add a container record by selecting the Add Record option in the Function Menu. 


Adding a Record

When you click the Add Record option, a pop up will appear which allows you to enter all required information to create a new record in the BAPLIE file. 


In accordance with the SMDG specification for BAPLIE, certain fields are required to add a new record to the BAPLIE data. Required fields are: Container Position, Equipment ID, Equipment Type, ISO Code, Full or Empty status, Weight, Reference Code. If you do not fill in one of these required fields, they will be highlighted in red.


Once all necessary information has been added, click Add New Row in the bottom left corner to add the record to the uploaded BAPLIE file. To cancel at any point, click the Close button.
