A shipment that is monitored by wireless sensors should be stopped in order to make use only of the relevant data related to the shipment. Stopping a shipment automatically disassociates all Smart Sensors from a shipment and also creates the final shipment report.
Note: Stopping a shipment is not possible for shipments with an associated Q-tag. As the start time and stop time of such shipments is determined based on the start and stop time of the associated Q-tag data files uploaded by the user, it is not possible for a user to define the start and stop for such a shipment. The information will be derived automatically from the devices.
The shipment can be stopped from the View screen of the individual shipment, by clicking on the button.
The shipment is stopped in two steps:
Enter the stop time (this indicates the moment that the wireless devices or GPS/GPRS devices are removed from the shipment).
Press the OK button.
Note: To support the reliability of this procedure, the system only allows a stop-time that is close to the current system time (based on a user-defined allowed time frame).
Note: Idle shipments can be stopped.
