The shipment data is copied from the order or shipment.
You can either request quotes and click on a suitable offer, or skip it and place a direct booking.
ETA, ETD and CO2 calculation
When requesting freight prices or placing a transport booking, you also receive:
- ETD: Estimated Time of Departure of the shipment (collection date)
- ETA: Estimated Time of Arrival of the shipment (delivery date)
- CO2e emissions: estimated shipment GHGs which takes into account:
- the freight/service type (air, sea, road, courier, rail),
- estimated vessel/truck/plane type,
- the specific carrier's fleet (when information available),
- travel distance (via roads, shipping lanes or airways),
- quantity of goods (both the weight and volume),
After placing a transport order, the shipping labels can be opened and printed directly in Ongoing.
After placing a transport order, the e-Waybill can be opened and printed directly in Ongoing.
This requires the user to be signed in to Cargoson.
After placing a transport order, the CMR can be opened and printed directly in Ongoing.
This requires the user to be signed in to Cargoson.
The shipment's tracking link will be saved in your Ongoing WMS.
In addition, the shipment's tracking milestones are automatically updated based on the info saved in the carrier's system. You can see the status directly on your Ongoing order or shipment without opening the tracking link.
