Check digits from SIS

Hi,

 Let's look at the case when "A" sends an AWB, with badly computed check digit, to "B".

-        Will SIS inform "A" about this error?

-        Will SIS forward that erroneous billing to "B" or will that billing be held in SIS until the error is corrected?

 

In a nut shell, is it possible for us to receive an AWB with badly calculated check digit in IDEC from SIS?

Thank you,

Michael

Hi Michael,

1)    Carrier ‘A’ will be informed if the incorrect check digit is 7 or 8 as this will result in a correctible error. In this case SIS will hold the billing until it is corrected.

2)    If the check digit is between 0-6 or 9 then the file will be successfully validated and sent across to carrier ‘B’ but SIS will highlight that check digit is incorrect under the “IS-Validation” field in the file.

So in essence, yes – you may receive incorrect check digits in the IS-IDEC file but these will be indicated by SIS in the “IS-Validation” field.

 

Hope that helps.

Rgds,

Ashley
