When setting up the contents of your boxes, skids or totes, you will have to define a set of fields.

There are a few important points to be considered:

  • You don't have to fill up the contents of each box, skid or tote; instead, you can use the first one of all the shipment to add the contents of the rest and act as a master record
  • You will have to specify values according to different measurements and insurance values

Taking those into account, to set up your shipment's contents you will have to define:

  1. SKU: If you have a code use it; If you don't, write something that will help you identify the content (e.g. "mixed" if the contents vary)
  2. Description: Short description of the content (e.g. "can", "oil", etc)
  3. Quantity: Depending on the type of product, the quantity could be a number representing grams or milliliters (e.g. 10000 for oil would be 10 liters, 1000 for solids would be 1 kilogram)
  4. Unit price: Insurance price per gram/milliliter
  5. Net Weight: Specifies the new weight of the shipment; usually it's the Quantity specified before, converted to the Net Weight Unit (e.g. Qty = 1000g would need Net wt.(KG) filled with 1); the unit for this field can vary

NOTE: When you enter the Country, use the Country CODE, not the name (e.g. CA instead of Canada)
