How to use the Correct Positions Feature

If you upload a BAPLIE to that has a stowage plan with containers in invalid positions, our tool will notify you that these are Data Anomalies.  For more information on what is considered an anomaly and how to access this list, please check out this documentation article.

An invalid position is categorized as:

  • Bad Position: The vessel position is not exactly 7 numeric digits 
  • Unknown Bay: Vessel position = 0999999 or 9999999
  • Missing Position: The vessel position is blank 
  • Bad Row position: The vessel row position is greater than 29

You can correct these from the main content: Edit records, from the anomalies list, or now from the 2D View if your membership includes the Operations Functionality.

Steps to correct positions in 2D Viewer

Once you load the 2D View, change the Mode to "Move".

When you add the containers to the 2D View, they will use the same color by that you have selected, and existing containers will be greyed out.

You will be asked to confirm the positions - if you wish to discard any changes press "cancel", if you wish to review them one last time, press "Review before commit" and if you would like to continue with the changes you have made press "continue" Screen Shot 2021-08-18 at 11.48.49 AM.png

Correcting other containers

You can also correct other containers even if they do not appear on the invalid containers list. 

Once you load the 2D View, change the Mode to "Move". Select no if you dont want to correct the invalid containers at this time.

Next, you can either select a single container by clicking it - you will see it added to the right hand list.

Or, you can hold down your mouse and drag it over multiple containers - you will be asked to chose the sequence flow and press add to see them on the right hand list.

Or, you can choose to automatically select containers based on an attribute. For example, change the Color By attribute to be "Is Reefer" and select Yes.  All reefer containers will be added to the right hand list.
