            What are the exemptions to Bay Plan Transmission?

            Bulk/Break-bulk: Vessels carrying exclusively bulk or break-bulk cargo are not required to submit a Bay Plan. When the vessel contains one or more containers, with or without cargo, the vessel carrier must submit a Bay Plan.

            Barges containing containers: Barges carrying one or more containers, with or without cargo, must submit a Bay Plan. Barges are exempted only when there are no containers onboard. For transmission instructions see below:

            1. To populate the bay location, use a value of 001
            2. To populate the row location, use incremental values from 00 thru 99 (allowing for 99 containers)
            3. To populate the tier location, use a value of 82 (above deck)
            4. Thus the sender can use 0010182 for one container 0010282 for the second container and so on.
            If there are more than 99 containers being transported, repeat the above procedure, giving the bay location a value of 002. Step 3 remains the same.

            Roll-on / Roll off (Ro-Ro) vessels: Vessels carrying exclusively non containerized Ro-Ro cargo are not required to submit a Bay Plan. When the vessel is carrying one or more containers, with or without cargo, the vessel carrier must submit a Bay Plan.

            Military: Military vessels are not required to submit a Bay Plan as per ACI regulations, as specified in the D-Memo Reporting of Imported Goods Regulations.

            Outward: Outward Bay Plan transmission for cargo and conveyance is not required.
