Section 4.3.3 'Detail Validation: Duplicate Error' states as follows:
"Duplicate error: All transactions which SIS identifies as possible duplicates will also be marked in the output process."
Our Query: Will the following scenarios be considered as 'duplicate'. If not please advice the criterion used to mark duplicate error.
It could be possible that there are multiple billings to the same carrier in different or same invoice.
For e.g. Consider the case of an LH/020 AWB, where the freight is 'prepaid' and other charges is 'collect' (termed as PC AWB)
LH AWB: LHR---BA----FRA--LH-----SIN
In this, there would be two outward billings from BA to LH
1. For Freight Charges from LHR-FRA, under the billing code PP (invoice type = 01)
2. For Other Charges under the billing code CC (invoice type = 02)
Will SIS consider this as duplicate? Is this a candidate for rejection?
In case of split shipments, it could be possible that the complete flown has happened across months. In which case, the carrier may choose to outward bill the same AWB in different months
E.g. LH Prepaid AWB (100kgs)
LHR---BA (40 Kgs 31-Oct)----FRA--LH-----SIN
LHR---BA (60 Kgs 03-Nov )----FRA--LH-----SIN
In the above example, the first part could be billed in P4 of October clearance month and the second part in P1 of November clearance month.
Will SIS consider the second part billed in November as a duplicate? Will the second billing be rejected by SIS?
Thanks for your prompt response.
