  • If the vessel BAPLIE has been loaded and there is a container record in PortConnect, you can set the priority immediately. 

  • If there is no container record in PortConnect yet, an auto-request priority move can be made. The system will re-try priority auto-requests for up to 14 days, at which point the request expires and will need to be requested again by the user.

  • If a container is Unavailable and you set the priority it will create an Auto-Request. 

  • If the container has MPI Clearance then the container priority status will automatically be updated. If the container has not met these requirements during this time the Auto-Request will lapse and the container will automatically disappear from the screen.
