DBC DE migration to ECTD message format

Frankfurt, 10th November 2016

DB Cargo DE (2180) started today sending ECTD 1.3.1 messages instead of CTD´s for its wagon load traffic. Basel team was involved and substituted the switchover. In principle the main change for partners incoming ECTD messages should be the replacement of the “UNDEFINED IN CTD” info by additional consignment note data. Incoming CTD messages should work as before.

After the switch they will use ECTD 1.3.1 for all outgoing messages:

- Intermodal forwarding messages (as today)
- Wagon load ECN /PCN (as today)
- Wagon load forwarding messages (new).
