How to use the document step in shipping instructions (new experience)?

Identify the document type required – Waybill or Bill of lading.

  1. Shipment references:
    • The list of shipment references will appear based on the transport plan. This section sometimes might not appear if there are no references required as per the country regulations.
    • These references come in 2 types – mandatory & optional. The mandatory references are required for successful SI submit and the optional references are up to you to provide if desired.
  2. Vessel & port alias (optional):
    • The vessel section will show the first 2 ports of the transport plan i.e. the port of loading and the 1st transshipment port.
      • The port of loading is always selected by default as the choice.
      • You will have the option to select the 1st transshipment port.
      • This selection is printed on the lading document.
      • The alias section allows to identify the text that will be printed in the lading document.
      • The load port dropdown is dependent on the vessel selected by the user.
