Shipment binder

The Shipment Binder contains all the information you need about a shipment, including any tasks that still need to be completed. If you want to take any actions on a shipment – such as change the shipment details or submit or amend the Shipping Instruction or VGM (Verified Gross Mass) – this is the place to do it.

Information in the Shipment Binder includes:

  • A transport plan, with ports, vessels, arrival/departure times, etc.
  • Tracking information for individual containers
  • A link to all documents, including the Bill of Lading and Arrival Notice
  • A log of all interactions related to the shipment

All information in the Shipment Binder reflects the information in our systems and is fully up to date.
