What are Container Bookings?

Container Bookings are used by Carriers who wish to book many Container drop off bookings at once from a single release.  To use this option, select “Container Bookings” from inside the Bookings menu, as shown below.

Once “Container Bookings” is selected, the below will be displayed. 

How to Upload Dropoff Containers

To upload drop off containers for Booking, select “Upload Dropoff Containers”. 

This will bring you to the below page

 

Add the containers here remembering to separate the containers.  Examples of how to separate the containers include:

  • comma

  • semi colon

  • space

  • line

 

Once the containers have been added, then select “Upload”.

 

Whilst this upload is in progress, the user may see the below status screen.

 

Once the upload is a success, the user will see the uploaded containers as shown below.

How to Book uploaded Containers with Acceptance = YES

Once you have successfully uploaded the containers, next you can select your date.  In the below example I have selected “Fri 19/02” as my Booking Date.

 

Next you will need to enter the following mandatory (*) fields to “Book”:

  • Truck Rego/Number: list retrieved from the Truck List

 

  • Truck Driver: list retrieved from the Truck Driver List (if the driver is associated to a Truck, then the Driver will be auto populated)

 

  • Zone: where the first number is the Zone and in brackets is how many slots are available

 

Once the above fields have been entered, then select Book.

 

Once the container is booked, then the Booking Ref will be displayed in place of the Book button and a message will be displayed at the top of the page, as shown below.

How to Book uploaded Containers with Acceptance = NO

If the Containers are unknown or have yet to be assigned an acceptance number in the container park system, then they will be displayed as shown below.  Here you can see the ISO, Owner, and Acceptance Received = Blank. 

Also to note - the Zone and Book options will remain blank till the Site has been selected.

 

Here you can see that once the Site was selected, then the Zone and Book button can be selected.

NOTE – if a user selects the incorrect site in the above process, then the user will need to delete the container via the Actions menu and reupload.
