This powerful feature provides complete control and visibility over shipping consignments from the point of booking through to receipt into your warehouse.
From the booking advice from your shippers you can create each consignment complete with the bill of lading covering one or more purchase orders, FCL or LCL. Multi-container shipments are supported and with calculated landed costs of every product you can see the value of incoming stock “on the water”.
On notification of ship dates from your shippers, a single date entry against the consignment updates all purchase order lines covered by the consignment and also updates estimated delivery timescales across all sales orders waiting on the goods, ensuring that your staff and customers have the most up-to-date and accurate indication of delivery.
If your shipper offers integration facilities, Caliq can send and receive consignment data to automate this process even further.
