Input Combinations for Container Uploads

Modified on Wed, 07 Dec 2022 at 05:30 AM

While the previous article How to Add Containers stated our system requires the following: 

  • Carrier number 
  • Container number 
  • BL [optional]


We understand that all 3 values may not be available to you at the time of uploading. Out platform has the ability to support the following input combinations:

 

Container #

SCAC code

Bill of Lading #

Container number is a mandatory input


Do note: 

  • For the most accurate results, inputting all 3 values is highly recommended. 
  • The risk of using 'AUTO' SCAC is that you will be provided with the most recent container journey data - which may not be the journey that matches the Master Bill of Lading
  • If you do not have the Master Bill of Lading, please leave this field blank
