Carrier container type

The carrier container types are automatically imported in earlier steps when the wizard is used to import carriers and their services, however, the carrier container type has to be connected to the different Container types added by the user.

Start by adding container types.

Warehouse management > Setup > Containers > Container types

Add Container type code, description, container dimensions and unit.

Enableing flexible volume dimensions will give the user a possiblity to add missing measurement or change predefined measurements when making a shipment booking.

Then connect the container type to carrier container types.

Cepheo> Consignor integration > Setup > Carrier container types
