A consignment supports holding shipping and container information.
The Shipping card supports storing information about the vessel and voyage the consignment relates to. If a container is involved, then the size and type of container associated with this consignment can be recorded, along with other relevant information.
The date the container was received and the date the container was returned may be entered. For a Client Partner, Freight Settings can hold a Container Due Threshold. This threshold indicates when demurrage charges may be incurred for holding a container.
The Dashboard can be configured to show a widget of containers that are due to reach their threshold date to help you keep track of container returns.
Setting a container yard adds a third leg to the route. If the consignment is Inwards, then the container yard indicates the container return destination. If the consignment is Outwards, then the container yard indicates the yard to pick up the empty container from to load and send it on it's way.
