Danish term or phrase:vis nummer
I have a Dutch DHL document that has the term 'Vis nummer' on it. I can't find any relevant Dutch hits at all. It surely can't mean "fish number" in this context.
The row reads:
wordt afgehaald te - geadresseerde informeren - vis nummer. All the hits I'm getting seem to be Danish.
No - in that case it's my mistake, because this is definitely a freight document. I think it must be an acronym in that case. Vessel Information System seems likely. But it was worth my asking, because now I can discount all of the Danish references to Vis nummer.

Explanation: This is the name of the function on a telephone or the service you can order from your phone company. It does seem odd, however, that a Danish term would pop up on such a document.
