What is an EDI 109 Vessel Content Details Document?

An EDI 109 transaction set is used to provide information required for the reporting of event details regarding a shipment and status of containers (one or more) bound for a port. It accommodates details for one status or event associated with many containers, as well as for more than one status or event for one shipment. Data contents of EDI 109 Vessel Content Details are to be used within the context of an Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) environment.
