Beta version of Smart documents

The wait is over! Our new Smart Documents tool is now live. 

You can find it under the Tools tab. 

Select the document you need to create from the following:

● Quotation

● Proforma Invoice

● Commercial Invoice

● Packing List

● Stuffing Plan

● Bill of Lading

● Purchase Order

● House Bill of Lading

You can fill, save, print and share these documents with others. You can also add a company logo. 

Autofill will also help you speed up filling in documents once you save information about your company. 

The documents comply with international standards and you can add your electronic signature to them. 

Tracking System

This week, we’ve made improvements to the way we work with shipping lines such as COSCO, Yang Ming, ONE, OOCL, Hyundai, Hamburg Sud, Wan Hai.

All previous errors related to a container search for any of these shipping lines have now been fixed.

Adding Rates

We have added a new function and you can now easily add your FCL Door to Door on the Virtual Office through an excel file.
