  • Vessels and Containers Tab
    The Vessels and Containers window consists of the Vessels panel and the Containers panel.

    Route, References and Containers Task: Vessels and Containers
    The Vessels panel enables you to add vessel information to the shipment. It consists of a Vessels table, with a row for each vessel that relates to the shipment. You can create multiple rows to describe multiple legs of a journey.
    If the items in the shipment are packed in a container or containers, select the Shipped in Containers field. This information is used to fill in the T5 transition document and the Single Administrative Document (SAD), both of which are customs documents used in the EU and some neighboring countries.
    There are a number of columns at the top of the table. You can resize the width of a column. You can also move columns into different positions on the Vessels panel by clicking and dragging the column header to your preferred location. Each column on the Vessels panel features a drop-down menu of column options. To access the column menu, click the arrow that appears when you roll over any column header in the Vessels table.
