Logitude World arms you with digital freight forwarding solutions to deliver superior services tailored to your customers’ needs by using the power of cloud computing and modern technologies to make sure you are ahead of your competitors.
Since we are on a continuous journey of development and as Logitude is rich in software modules, release notes are regularly issued to keep you up-to-date about new features and enhancements, as well as changes that have been made since the previous release.
This version of the release notes introduces new features and functionalities while also describing enhanced existing features.
The European Union is implementing a new customs pre-arrival security and safety program, underpinned by a large-scale advanced cargo information system – Import Control System 2 (ICS2).
Due to this new regulation, certain pieces of information will become required to send to the carriers through the FWB and FHL messages for shipments moving through or going to the EU.
Logitude gives you access to fill all the required fields through the AWB wizard, as well as making the Main Harmonize code (HS Code) required for FWBs or FHLs for shipments moving through or going to the EU.
For more details about this new regulation, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Customer Digital Portal
The Customer Digital Portal is a new, branded, and dedicated web portal module that provides your customers with real-time digital visibility of their shipments and invoices. By the end of April 2023, the new digital portal will replace the exciting solution «Shared Logistics for Customers».
Giving your customers direct access to their data will help you as much as it helps them. They can get quick updates without delays while also getting direct answers to their questions. This will help both you and your customers avoid errors. Your customers can access it from a desktop, mobile device, or tablet; it’s simple to use and manage.
To activate this feature, please contact us at email@example.com.
Self-service by the customer: Upload shipments documents
Your customers who use the Digital Portal can now upload their shipment documents from the Digital Portal; these documents will be uploaded to the relevant shipment’s «Docs in» tab on the Logitude side. To approve these documents and proceed with the relevant parties, you can access these documents from this newly added tab from “Shipment Queries” > “Others” > “Pending Approval Documents”. This new enhancement will help you and your customers share documents without the need to send emails.
View the Digital Portal as a customer
To make it easier for you to support and follow your customers’ shipments, Logitude gives you access to view what your customer sees on the Digital Portal and what type of information they can see without requiring you to login.
Supporting Multi Unites
Customers who use multiple units of measurement are no longer a concern; the Customer Digital Portal now displays volumes and weights in CBM and CBF, as well as KG and LB. The Digital Portal settings in Logitude allow you to choose whether values are shown in multiple units or only in KG/CBM.
New tabs to Digital Portal Shipments` List
Digital portal users can now see the shipments by their stages, we added three queries to the digital portal shipments list to represent shipments stages:
Note: You can access shipments listed under the new queries manually. These shipments should not be marked as «accounting closed» or «operational closed», otherwise they will be listed under the «all shipments» query.
Cross Dock Automation
To give you more control over the Cross Dock Module, and to enable the process of sending emails automatically if the entry or the release met the conditions, Logitude recently improved the automation module to allow you to specify automatic outcomes from Cross Dock Entries and Releases.
You can define automatic email results from the cross docks entity by using this feature. And with this option, emails can be sent to the partner when the conditions are met.
In addition to the Set Fields Value result which allows you to define a result that will automatically change selected fields to a specified value when the defined conditions are met.
For more details about this function, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
As published by the Mexican Tax Administration Service (SAT), it is decided to delay the entry of CFDI Payroll 4.0, which was scheduled for January 1, 2023, until April 1, 2023. This extension allows taxpayers who issue electronic invoices to meet all of the requirements set forth in the tax provisions for the issuance of the CDFI in version 4.0.
Logitude is ready for the new version and still improving more to make it easy to deal with the new version.
Transfer Expense Charges based on parameter
Managing the information of the “Acuenta de Terceros” by the payable vendor for each Expense charge can be defined based on parameters, so you have control over sending the expense charges with the “Acuenta de Terceros” details to SAT or not.
VAT Calculations Per Line
In some cases, you may face a situation where there is a difference between the lines: VAT sum (the amount that is calculated in SAT) and the total VAT at the invoice level (which is calculated in Logitude).
To solve this issue, Logitude developed an automatic mechanism to be compatible with SAT, which is adjusting the amount of the invoice line where there is a difference so that we have the same VAT amount that is defined in SAT.
Automations Module Enhancements
Use the Automation Module to define entity-related actions that should be performed automatically when a condition is met. We call these definitions: «Automations».
For example, you can define that when a new direct shipment is created (the condition), an arrival notice document follow-up should be created or an email should be automatically sent to a certain user or contact (the result action).
For you to be able to trigger the shipments based on the main carriage details, we added the following fields to the shipment and master automation:
Event Creation Via Automation
A new option to add events automatically to the shipment is now available to keep your shipment’s events up-to-date without having to worry about adding them manually. This option will be available for use one week after this release.
Added Bank Details to Accounting Interfaces
For generic and advanced generic transfers of payments, the bank details will now be included in the generated XML files. The fields added are:
Added “Updated by Username” to Daily Exchange Rates
In the daily exchange rates screen, we added a new column to show the user that edited the exchange rate as well as when they made the change.
Unpaid Invoices Report – Update to Filter Logic
You can now generate the “Unpaid Invoices” report without the “from date filter” being required.
Improvements in BI Reports
For you to have a better experience in reporting, decision-making, and analyzing the measurable aspects of your business, we are constantly improving the BI Reports Module to help you access the data in the Logitude Data Warehouse (DW).
The following changes have been made to the BI reports and will go live one week after the release.
You can now create a report that includes the Estimated Profit of your shipment compared with the Actual Profit.
Total Section in the PDF files
Logitude has improved the PDF files that can be downloaded or sent from BI reports to include totals for all number columns, allowing you to easily see totals without having to perform extra calculations for each report.
Change Font Size in the Edit Document
Logitude has improved the Edit document option to give you the option to change the font size for a specific section without affecting the whole document. This will help you control the size in some areas, like changing the font of the customers/ shippers, or consignees if their names are long, without affecting the whole document.
Through Logitude Views, you can visualize the data and have control over the columns and filters that you need, in addition to the option of extracting the data and using it.
Improve the «Download to Excel» Performance
We improved the performance of the «Download to Excel» action to help you quickly extract huge amounts of data into Excel.
We adjusted the alignment of the “Numbers” columns to enhance their look when there is another text column besides them. We added more space to make it easier to view and read.
Add Quotes Filters to Quotes Queries
Quote queries now have filters that allow you to filter based on salesman records or created by records.
Grouping Quotes Charge Lines Totals by Currencies
Quotes with charge lines in different currencies can be printed in a quotation by grouping totals, VAT amount, VAT percentage, and totals by currency.
The quotation module now has four new fields that group charge lines by currency; the four fields are:
Editing the sale exchange rate in Multi Currency mode
You can now edit the “Sales Exchange Rate” in the quote charges inside the box of “Sales Currency”, same as the “Sales Exchange Rate”.
