BOL Templates

  • The bol template is often refered to as Bill of Lading.
  • The bol template can display all relevant values of a particulair shipment.
  • Every customer or user is able to print a bol template after entering a new shipment.
  • At the bottom of a bol template a possibilty is given to add a signature.
  • Note: A Bol template is often confused with a booking template. Booking templates are displayed in your overview of active orders when clicking dossier, orderID or shipmentID. Booking templates are different, because they also generate an overview of statusses of a particualir shipment.
  • There is also a possibility to print CMR's, read more in: CMR templates.
  • Printing ability for the Bol template (Bill of Lading) can be found at:
    • After a new shipment is added.
    • Inside the "Overview of Batch Orders" and clicking the Bol-symbol (white square in blue background).
    • In the "with selected" function at the bottom end of the Active Shipments grid.

Extra functionality

  • Cargo Office administrators have the option to call, create and maintain different BOL templates from their own carrier ftp-environment.
  • It is always possible to sent Cargo Office Programmers a request to create a custom built template.
    If desired use your bug tracking system to sent these request preferably together with a screenprint of your wishes.

PDF-printing

  • Currently we have the option to print BolTemplates in pdf-format.
  • If interested sent Cargo Office programmers a request by using your bug tracking system.

Specific requests

  • Specific templates are often created for specific customers, using specific fields.
  • If there is any field you like to have added to a boltemplate, please tell us the name of this field (check if this field is used inside the orderentry template) and send us a request by using your bug tracking system.
  • Please note that after printing any of these documents the result can depend on the printer and browser settings of the user who is actually printing the document. It is impossible for Cargo Office distributors to control these settings. So it is impossible to give any guarantee the hardcopy results will be satisfactury, although the default template will fit in almost every A4-page.
    • Any user is able to change the settings of his browser in Page setup.
    • For custom made templates the cargoOffice administrator should instruct their users how to configure their browser and printer settings.
      Creating these templates is a check-error procedure between a Cargo Office programmer and a Cargo Office administrator. In general production costs will be calculated afterwards, because programmers are unable to check the outcome at the users desk.
      Note, even if the result is not satisfactury these costs could be implied.
  • The templates described below we can copy on a one to one basis and upload for a specific carrier or customer. This could be done for a fixed price.
  • It is possible to create a different template per customer.
  • It is also possible to create templates in different languages.
