Performance Enhancements

  • Some code has been cleaned up and documented resulting in faster page loads on our platform.

Bug fixes

There were several bugs in the app that are now fixed, including:

  • Quotes were not generated if additional services were filled out incorrectly. Now, the system checks for invalid data and creates a quotation.
  • During the quotation request process, it was possible for users to provide several containers with parameters—however, our account managers only saw one type of container. Now, the customer may choose just one type of container to fill and then contact our account manager, who will request further information.
  • When the request type is Personal Cargo, the system provided the option of bulk cargo as a possible option. When requesting Personal Cargo, the Bulk type did not appear in the system.
  • It was possible for the user to submit the same request numerous times. Now, when a user is viewing a previously created request, they now have the option to make a new request with slightly different information.
  • Some additional minor bugs were fixed and further minor improvements were made.
