FREIGHT FORWARDER

Detailed
Description:
I have completed freight forwarder information in database.  
Now, how do I choose this information? 
and where does it print on my paperwork.  
Problem Type: Databases
Version Number: Pro 7.X & Classic 6.X
Status: Closed
Solution: Go to the EZ Start screens. The first screen here is the Contacts. On this screen you can either type in your exporter, consignee, freight forwarder and other contact information or, to save time, just click on the drop-down arrow next to each field and select the appropriate contact from the respective databases.

In your example, you would click on the drop-down arrow next to the "Forwarder" field, and you'll see a list of all the freight forwarders you entered into the Freight Forwarder Database. Just click on the forwarder you wish to choose, and all the information from the database will automatically fill in on this shipment.

Once you've selected a freight forwarder on the Contacts screen, the information will automatically print out on all the export forms requiring a freight forwarder such as the SED, the waybills, the Shipper's Letter of Instruction, etc.
