Create a Shipment

From the Shipment Overview page, click on to add your Shipment.

This will open a pop up as illustrated below, allowing you to choose a Shipment ID for your Shipment:

Note: If you have created similar Shipments in the past, you also have the option to choose a template for your new Shipment out of the existing ones.
Once you have chosen the Shipment ID, click OK and you will be redirected to the screen, allowing you to choose the detailed information for your Shipment.

Note: Alternatively, you can add information at a later stage by clicking on the Modify button of a shipment.

You can add following information to the shipment:

General settings about the shipment: In this section you can edit the Name (i.e. Unique Shipment Identifier) of the Shipment and optionally can add a descriptive note to the Shipment. You can also define the Customer of the Shipment by selecting one from a drop-down list. .

Transportation information of the shipment: In this section you can define origin, destination, trip ID, transport Method, transportation Company and Carrier of the shipment. Origin, destination and transport Method need to be selected from their drop-down lists. If Method is selected as Air then Carrier field will show a drop-down list with Air Carrier subset list that is already defined in the system. For other transport Method (e.g. Road) Carrier field will become a free-text field and will allow you to type the name of the carrier.

Product information for the shipment: In this section you can choose the predefined product for the shipment. If a Product Code is defined for the product, then selecting the product, will populate the Product Code filled in the screen. Optionally you can define related Batch Number and Order number.

Note: Before you start creating a Shipment and defining its detailed information, make sure you have already defined and/ or configured the following information

By selecting the Event Profile in the drop down list, the Event Profile will be applied to your Shipment. Click on Save to save your changes.
