We know how important it is to be able to track not only the truck but also what is inside. We therefore improved our Goods Management in Shippeo to accommodate more specifications for Handling Units. The purpose of this is to allow for more granularity and provide our users with more options when dealing with their cargo.
- Possible Goods Specifications
- Adding Specifications to Goods
- Goods Overview in Shippeo
- Feedback on Goods during Loading/Delivery
Possible Goods Specifications
You can now add additional specifications for your goods on order and handling unit level.
|Order Level||Handling Unit Level|
Adding Specifications to Goods
For the moment, the Goods Specifications need to be sent to Shippeo via EDI and cannot be entered or updated manually. We can receive it either with order_in or with events_in (read more on an EDI connection).
We will continue to improve this feature and will keep you updated!

Feedback on Goods during Loading/Delivery
Updates and feedback on Goods and possible non-conformity during Loading/Delivery can currently be managed as follows:
- Order including specified goods is entered into Shippeo
- Resource arrives at loading/delivery site
- Scanned goods are added into the Warehouse Management System
- Warehouse Management System sends information on loading/delivery including goods via EDI to Shippeo
- Shippeo displays information on Goods including possible discrepancy
Shippeo only functions as messenger in this situation, solving a discrepancy in loading or delivery compared to the planned cargo is to be taken up directly with your carrier or client.
We will continue to improve this feature and will keep you updated and if you have any additional questions then please consult our FAQ article on Goods Management.
