Nafta/Importer Field

How do we populate the Importer box 
on the Nafta Cert.  
we are pulling the Bill/Sold to address from our business system - so shouldn`t that populate that field? 
Problem Type: Databases
Version Number: Pro 7.X & Classic 6.X
Status: Closed
Solution: Because the "Importer" field on the NAFTA Certificate of Origin may or may not be the same as the Ultimate Consignee on the Invoices and other forms, Shipping Solutions allows you to choose a different "importer" if necessary.

If you are integrating Shipping Solutions Professional with your accounting, order-entry or ERP system, you need to map the information to the Importer field for the NAFTA form. In your case, it sounds like it would be the same information as appears in the Ultimate Consignee fields.

If you have not integrated Shipping Solutions, just go to the NAFTA screen in EZ Start and choose your importer from the drop-down menu. The software allows you to select the importer from either the Consignee or Miscellaneous Contacts database.
