Necessary when opening each new document:

  • It is very important to check at the beginning if the container number is the same on all uploaded documents.
  • Everything that is written thickly on the Check List are mandatory fields for the carrier and always have to verified. Other fields are optional and only need to be verified when filled out.
  • Next to each filled out field in Asset is a number in brackets. Under Document Management, the individual documents are numbered. You will always find the data to be checked in the document with the matching number. 
  • Be aware that different inspection providers use different layouts, so the information you are looking for might be found somewhere else on different documents.

1. Container number

Open under the tab “Document management” in Asset the document with the matching number.

The document should look like the example image on the left, 

You find the container number usually on top of the document.

2. Container length & ISO Container Type Group

The length of a container is either provided by specific dimensions (length x hight x width) or if the dimensions are not given you can get it from the 1st character of the 4 digit ISO Type Code.

With this table all possible 1st characters are listed with the matching lengths in mm.

6. Empty weight / Tare weight (kg) 

You will also find the weight of the vehicle without load on the tank container .

Repeat: The number next to the pdf sign, next to the field to be checked, is the number before the document to be checked. 

Check that the weight indicated corresponds to the weight on the document.

7. Next tank inspection 

On the document you will usually find a section regarding all inspection dates.

8. Next frame inspection (CSC) 

On the document you will usually find a section regarding all inspection dates.

9. Number of chambers & Capacity / Volume (L) & number of surge plates / Baffels

If the component has more than one chamber it is necessary that the capacity/volume for each chamber is given.

The number of surge plates can be confirmed if behind the capacity the documents notes a “S”. This means that this containes has enough surge plates.

For every 7.500 L there is one surge plate needed:

7.500L

15.000L

2

22.500L

3

30.000L

4

37.500L

Sometimes the carrier upload an extra certificate to prove the amount of surge plates for a whole series of containers. Here we need to check if our containernumber is within the range of series numbers.

10. Tank Code (ADR) & Instruction Portable Tanks

Here you can see two different documents.

On the top the 4 digit ADR Code ist Given (L4DH) and the T14 instruction for portable tanks.

On the bottom you only can find the ADR Code (L4BH).

12. Confirm/ reject Asset 

If all the specified data matches the data on the documents, then the whole asset can be released via the button.

If an asset has to be rejected because of one or more incorrect items, be sure to list all incorrect items under Reason for Rejection
