Option 1 Tracking: As an active weborder feature we offer an “integrated tracking” within the order lists. Here you see shipment status and information concerning orders created in the application active weborder.

Option 2 Tracking: If you want to track all shipments in your forwarding network, we offer you on request the module “Transport tracing” including POD and other feautures.

Get to know the new option to to create an order forwarder to forwarder (cross-traffic) so that not only customers, but now forwarders also can be electronically connected to your transport management system in a few seconds.

In addition to the changes listed below for you, we have also improved “active weborder” for your customers. For more information see “What’s new for your shipper?“.

  • In the overview of your business relationships, you will now find an export function.
  • The export of order lists is extended by the column “Last edited by”.
  • For your shippers in bulk imports of parked orders, formats such as PDF and ZIP files are not supported. For detailed information about importing / uploading files, see the documentation. If you want a format other than csv and application documentation, this must be agreed bilaterally!
  • It is now also possible for your shippers to delete orders via a multiple selection, similar to the functions already available “Multiple lock” and “Add to loading list”. If the shipper simply wants to delete orders that have been created in active weborder but not yet released, or if bulk imports result in a large number of orders with incorrect data. In the example of the bulk import then only the import file needs to be adjusted and the manual correction of individual orders in active weborder, or the individual deletion via the list is omitted.
  • Introduction of the status “Internal actioned stamp” into the loading lists of the shipping order. From the functional area of ​​the freight forwarder loading list view, it is now possible to set the status to done or to reset it to open. In each case the current time and the current user are saved. The function only applies to shared loading lists!
  • Extension of the freight forwarder load list view by one column “Internal actioned stamp”. The content of the column is a status indicator (Open / Done) as well as the user and the timestamp to which this status has been set.
  • Technically, the newly introduced EDI queue optimizes in the background the export of the data of a loading list, a procurement order, a single log-on declaration and a quantity-log-on declaration. Previously, the status “Waiting” (and then “Released“) was displayed when you released it to the carrier. Now the newly introduced status “Pending” or “Warning” will be displayed. A detailed description can be found in the documentation.
