How are Bay Plans linked to Conveyance and Associated Cargo Transmissions?
Bay plans are linked to Conveyance and associated cargo transmissions by the Conveyance Reference Number (CRN).
Conveyance Reference Number (CRN) – is the official marine carrier code for the carrier assigned by CBSA, plus any unique reference number assigned by the carrier to identify that particular voyage for a conveyance (vessel).
The CRN is generated by the Vessel Operating Carrier and shared amongst the Vessel Sharing Partners.
This number is required on the SO91 Marine Conveyance Report (A6), SO83 Marine Cargo Report (A6A), and SO695 Marine Empty Container Report. See diagram attached for document relationship.
