Re: [TSL] "short shipped"

Hi Ines,

Short-shipped literally means "transport paid for but not yet 
delivered."   Often when I've seen passengers with that annotation, or 
even just S-S after their name, they quite often actually arrive on the 
next (or shortly thereafter) vessel from that shipping line.

I suppose there could be many reasons for being short-shipped, such as 
failing to arrive at the port before sailing, or illness ... some have 
suggested "over-booking," however, I think that would be less likely.
