operation. The telephone number of this office will be 681^2212, Local 369*
The baggageroom hours will be from 8:00 a.m. to 5*00 p#m.
Monday through Fridays If vessels arrive and depart Saturdays, Sundays or
Holidays the baggageroom will be open and the same hours observed. However,
in addition to these hours baggageroom will be open to handle baggage from

Vancouver, B. C.
In so far as we are concerned, the baggage received under
prepaid Delivery Checks, Vancouver Depot should not be placed in
stock piles with regular baggage but should be held in a separate
location ready for removal by the Vancouver Transfer Company.
A thorough oheek and examination of all baggage on hand
should be made previous to sailings in order to avoid any
possibility of baggage being left behind. With reference to billing
baggage under Prepaid Checks to Pier B-C, it is suggested that you
use Form GBD 20 and I am attaching herewith sample copy. You will
observe that the numbers recorded are staggered allowing space for
notation after each item for use by Mr. Lepage1s representative at
Pier B-C* Under no circumstances are members of your staff to accept
baggage or other articles delivered locally for the ship. Persons
delivering articles of this nature should be, in every case, referred
to Mr. LePage*s representative at Pier B-C.

Handling of Baggage
P & 0 - Orient Lines Vessels at Vancouver*
On the 30th March 1962 we addressed a letter to Mr# AJP* LePage in connection with the above matter, and set out certain details on the handling both of inward
and outward baggage, but in view of the various discussions which have taken place
since then we feel it advisable at this time to bring up to date in the first instance
the question of handling of Inward baggage, details of which are, therefore, as follows*
INWARD BAGGAGE
lo Baggage is to be placed under the appropriate letter in the Pier fCf Baggage Room
coinciding with the first letter of the passenger1s namea
2a On night of arrival and also the following morning, when passengers are disembarking, Baggage-men are required to aid passengers to the Customs Table with their
baggage, also to clear these tables after Customs examination has taken place, for
disposal to passengers or Red Caps* The Baggage Overseer appointed by you will
require to supervise this operation*
3o This Overseer will require to have the baggage in the Pier fCf Baggage Room checked
for inward unaccompanied baggage, same to be checked against the list supplied by
this Office, which list is to be signed, the original sent to us, the carbon copy
retained by you, and, in addition, the Baggage Overseer will also be required to
sign the ship's Unaccompanied Baggage List to prove the baggage has been landed
Vancouver*
/mm   The Baggage Overseer will require to make a check of the baggage on the floor of
Pier fCf Baggage Room for any personal effects which are manifested as cargo, but
which may have reached the upstairs Baggage Room* Arrangements must be made for
such items to be returned to the lower level of the Pier !Bf Sheda
5o One of the major and most important tasks carried out by the Baggage Overseer is
to check for baggage discharged from the ship labelled for a port other than Vancouver* It may be baggage discharged in error which must be returned to the vessel
before

Missing Bg ggage
6* Passengors occasionally cannot find their baggage, in which case the following
procedure is to be carried out:
A* Check under all letters, as it might have been misplaced*
B* Find out from the passenger the following information*
(i)   Port of embarkation
(ii)  First Class or Tourist Class
(iii) Stowage of Baggage, that is, Hold, Wanted on Voyage,
or Cabin
(iv)  Description, including colour, size of trunk, suitcase,
etc*, and how labelled*
On ascertaining this information the Baggage Overseer is to check with the
ship as baggage may still be on board* It is suggested that the Overseer
contact Captain Gibson for the first few vessels until familiar with the
procedure of checking on board*
C* Should a missing package be Hold baggage it may have been discharged and
mixed up with cargo, therefore check should be made amongst the discharged
cargo*
D* Should the baggage still not be located, full information is required by
this Office in order that enquiries can be promptly made* The :J__aformation
we desire is covered in Section B above, and in addition we require full
particulars of the name of the passenger and the passenger1s forwarding
address*
DamagedJteggage
7* As far as damaged baggage is concerned the following should apply where damage
is reported prior to the passenger leaving the Pier areas
A* Ascertain full particulars of owner1s names
B* Obtain full details of damage sustained.
C. Whether First Class or Tourist Class.
D* Stowage of baggage, that is, Hold, Wanted on Voyage* or Cabin.
E. Description, including colour, size of trunk, suitcase, etc., and how
labelled*
F* Forwarding address of passenger*
G* Refer passenger to this Office.
In addition, however, and most important, the Baggage Overseer should endeavour to ascertain the cause of damage. M   3   '*
lou will note that we have suggested that the passenger be referred to
us, and while we will pursue the matter on the lines indicated above, it will, of
course, be necessary for us to know as far as possible the cause of damage, and
where the damage actually occurred, since it is on 3tich information that a decision
must be made as to whether or not the matter is to be handled under the P & 0 -
Orient Lines Conditions of Contract, or through the Insurance Company.
Where damage is discovered and reported by a passenger following departure from the Pier area, or even from Vancouver, we feel it most likely that such a
passenger would direct his letter to P & 0 - Orient Lines, and it will, therefore,
be passed to us for handling* In the event, however, that a passenger should write
to you, no doubt you would redirect the letter to us in similar fashion*
In summing up we feel that the most important points are:
A* To establish as far as lies within everyones power the cause of the
damage and where it occurred, and
B* To obtain the fullest possible particulars so as to avoid prolonging
the enquiries by the need to seek additional information,
Swamping-up of Baggage
8*        Swamping-up is usually carried out around 11 A.M. on the morning after
arrival of a vessel, and once all passengers have disembarked, but this swamping-
up time will of course vary in accordance with arrival times of vessels and the
period at which passenger disembarkation is completed*
Separate lists of baggage remaining on hand in the Pier fCf Baggage Room,
both 'Free' and fIn Bond1 must be compiled, and these lists must show the passengers name, the number and description of pieces*
The original of the list is to be sent to this Office as soon as possible,
the remaining copy being retained by you*
It is appreciated that on occasions certain items carried by P & 0 -
Orient Lines with the passenger1s baggage allowance are too large and heavy to be
handled in the same way, say, as trunks or suitcases, and such items must, therefore, be left on the lower level*
The decision on the handling of such baggage must be left to the discretion
of the Baggage Overseer with the thought that such items left on the lower level
be kept to a m:__n_____um*
It will, of course, be necessary to record any such items remaining on
hand on the lower level following the disembarkation and departure of inward
passengers, and such information should be shown on the "Swamp-up List11 so that
should enquiries be received by us we will then be in a position to indicate to
the passenger concerned the whereabouts of the piece for which he is looking*
Disposal of Inward Baggage
9*       Baggage remaining behind following disembarkation is usually cleared and
collected by passengers within a few days, and it has been customary for a member — JL    —
of our staff to check on remaining baggage, say one week following the arrival
of a vessel, and letters are then forwarded to the owners requesting them to
arrange for prompt disposal.
It is understood that free storage time will be ten days. After such
a period the storage charges levied by you will be remitted to you by the
passengers when making arrangements for removal of their baggage.
On occasions passengers arrive in Vancouver and proceed by rail to other
parts of Canada leaving items behind in Vancouver* No doubt such items when forwarded, say by Canadian Pacific Merchandise Services, would go forward on the
understanding that C*P.M.S* would collect on your behalf any storage charges out-
stand ingo
After each P & 0 - Orient Lines vessel has departed from Vancouver we
should receive from you a list of all !Free! and 'In Bond1 items remaining on
hand, both for that and previous vessels, so that we have at all times a running
record in case enquiries are received from passengers or other ports*
