The Stack Run In Manifest screen allows carriers or empty container parks to lodge a manifest against a confirmed Stack Run In request and also allocate a driver (using their Maritime Security ID Card (MSIC) number) to the truck run.

The Stack Run In Manifest screen is accessed via the Stack Run Dashboard.


Accessing the Stack Run In Empty Dashboard

To access the manifest screen, a Stack Run must first be selected from the dashboard.

Click the 'Stack Run Request' menu option under the Stack Runs section in the main menu.

Click the "SRI MT" tab to access Stack Run In Empty Module and to view the dashboard.

The dashboard will allow carriers or empty container park to select a Confirmed Stack Run to manifest.

Accessing the Stack Run In Empty Manifest Screen

Click the Manifest Link against the ERN you wish to Manifest in the dashboard.

When the Manifest link is clicked, the Stack Run In Manifest screen will appear. Selecting the truck type will display the truck image for containers to be added.


Creating the Stack Run In Empty Manifest

To Create a Stack Run In Manifest - perform the following steps starting from the dashboard:

  1. Click the Manifest Link against the ERN you wish to Manifest in the dashboard. This will open up the Stack Run Manifesting Screen.
  2. Set the Manifest Details:
  3. Set the Truck and Driver details of the manifest - Truck Rego, BAT (if required), Truck Type, Driver and Mobile.
    After selecting the truck type, this will populate the rest of the form with the Truck Diagram.
  4. Click the Add Container button on the desired position on the truck on which you want to add the container to. This will open up the Add Container Pop-Up

  6. Click the Send PRA button - this will lodge a PRA for the container to the terminal. The response from the Terminal will update the PRA status to ACCEPTED or REJECTED. If the terminal sends a ‘Rejected’ response, you can pass the cursor over the ‘Rejected’ status and this will display the description associated to the container. Click the Add button once the PRA has been accepted
  7. Repeat Steps 4-6 to add more containers to the truck
  8. Once all containers have been added onto the truck, press the Create Manifest button. A confirmation screen will appear confirming the Manifest has been created. The manifest details can now be viewed in the Manifest List screen


Creating the Stack Run In Empty Manifest for a NEST of Flat Racks (BUNDLE)

When a Stack Run IN for empties has been set up for Nested flat racks then the manifest screen is slightly different.

Setting up a SRI empty for a NEST is based on selecting specific ISO Codes...


When adding containers (NEST) to the truck the following screen will display to facilitate adding each flat rack number to the master flat rack. Note: th emaster could be either to bottom rack or the top rack depending on what the individual terminal requires - confirm with the terminal.


Add each flat rack in turn one at a time...

Validations in place (Patrick terminals only)

For SRIE, vessel schedule is validated at the point of creating a SRIE. To successfully save a SRIE, following conditions need to be satisfied.

  If the dates of the stack run are not within MT Begin and MT cut off range date range, then the system would display an error message and prevent the user from saving the Stack run. Note that if the Empty dates are not provided by the Terminal, VBS would verify the same logic against the general cargo begin receival and cut off dates.


COR Compliance (Patrick Terminals Only)


As a result of the amendments made to Heavy Vehicle National Law (HVNL) on 1 October 2018, Patrick Terminals would require all carriers to acknowledge and accept that they’ve complied with COR Compliance conditions applicable for the Terminal. 


Carriers will be prompted to read and acknowledge COR Compliance conditions prior to completing stack run manifesting.



Carriers who do not acknowledge COR compliance conditions will not be allowed to complete manifest. Same process is applied when a carrier edit their manifest. When editing a manifest, carriers must read and accept the compliance before saving any changes. 

Truck Manifest Confirmation

Once you have created the manifest, you be will directed to a confirmation screen which outlines a summary of the Manifest, Truck and Driver details that have entered in the previous screens. 

NOTE: Continue Manifesting button will direct you back to the Stack Run Manifesting screen using the same ERN to continue manifesting. The Manifest List button directs the user to the Stack Run Manifest list screen.
