Logitude World provides the first true online freight forwarding software solution. It combines the power of cloud computing and modern technologies with a deep understanding of the Freight Forwarding Industry.
Since Logitude’s SaaS solution is rich in software modules, Release Notes are regularly issued to keep users up-to-date about new features and enhancements, as well as changes that were made since the previous release.
This version of the Release Notes introduces new features and functionalities, and describes existing features that were enhanced
We are happy to announce that in the current Logitude version, the new Filing Inbox module (released previously in Q4 2018) has become part of the Business Package.
If you are a Business user, you can now access this module from the Logitude menu. Note that in addition to email attachments, the email body too can be filed directly under the Docs In tab of a selected shipment or quote.
For more details about this module, please contact us at http://firstname.lastname@example.org.
The following new features have been added to the Custom Views capability in Shipments Queries:
It is now possible to expose a custom view you have created to another user or to all users so that they can use the same data view instead of having to create one of their own. To share your custom view, open the Create New/Edit View window, and in the Share tab choose All Users or a specific user. You can stop sharing your view at any time by selecting the None option in the Share tab.
Selecting the Show in Spotlight Mode option in the Create New/Edit View window, switches on the Spotlight feature for a customized view. The Spotlight icon (Plus button) then appears on the shipment lines for quickly checking the routing details of each shipment.
The Document Download feature has been developed to enable users to backup shipment documents to a downloadable file. You can use this feature to download:
The new Vendor Charges Analysis report under the Accounting section in Reports displays expenses (opened and accounted) per vendor. It analyzes all the payables created in your shipment files and lets you filter charges per specific carrier.
The Flight Booking List under the Statistics section in Reports allows customers to check the shipments booked on the same flight, at a given date. This will help customers prepare a single manifest for several AWBs on the same flight.
The following improvements have been introduced to Shipment, Master and Invoice counters.
In addition to the Prefix, the Suffix can also be part of the AR invoices counter. Example: 1055/1/1 where 1055 is the invoice number (according to the Start Number) and 1/1 should be added to AR invoices as suffix.
For any adaptation to your counters, please contact us at http://email@example.com.
In addition to the packages and routings details that can be entered to the shipments opened via the Shipment (direct, house and master) APIs tool, the receivable and payable charges can also be sent so there will be no need to enter them manually after the shipment is created.
To get more details about the APIs and the XML structure to use so that shipments will be opened successfully in your environment, please contact us at http://firstname.lastname@example.org.
The AR Payment Dates Must Be Chronological parameter has been added under the Accounting Receivables section in Accounting Settings (from Accounting menu | Settings tab) for use in countries where the AR payments need to be chronological.
The following new developments have been introduced to the Cross Docks facility:
In addition to other partner types, you can now also hide the shipper and consignee partners so that they will not be exposed to invited customers in the Shared Logistics module. These permissions can be monitored via the Partners Permissions option in the Shared Logistics and Mobile Workspace (make sure the partners to hide are deselected).
In the Shared Logistics page, the All Shipments and All Invoices views now display all the available records, without the previous limitation of 50 records.
A new zooming capability has been applied to some of the multiple-line text input fields such as the Description in CRM activities. Clicking on the zoom icon that appears when pointing to the top-right corner zooms the field in a new window where the full text can be viewed and edited.
A new event type has been added to the Shipment entity: Document Upload. This event is generated when a document is successfully uploaded. To view the history of uploads in a shipment, you can navigate to the Events tab.
Two follow up events have been added to the Shipment and Quote entities:
A picklist has been added to the Harmonize field in Packages containing the list of all HS codes, so that you can choose a code using the Search option instead of entering it manually.
The ratio between the Volume and Volumetric Weight values in the Packages screen is not limited to integers and it is now possible to set fractional values like 1:1.30.
To avoid overcrowding the Quote Charges screen, the Sale and Cost Minimum and Maximum Amounts columns have been removed from the Charges grid. To see these details, you need to open the Edit Charge window for a charge.
The Copy icon has been added beside the Email field in the Edit Contact window (from a customer record), so you can easily copy the contact’s email address.
The Contacts List in Payments has been reorganized into three categories – Bill To/ Vendor, All Contacts and All Active Users, so that you can easily find and select a contact while sending AR and AP payment messages.
The Copy Master window has been adjusted so it does not ask you to choose the customer as a shipper/consignee. Instead, it asks you to fill the Agent details.
You can now change the ports of a master shipment that has not yet departed from the main carriage loading port, even if it is connected to several houses. The change needs to be confirmed for the system to update the ports at the house level as well.
The size of all the reference fields (Ref1, Ref2, Ref3 and Ref4) in the Add Package window has been increased to 2000 characters.
The new Update button in the Add Port, Add Airline and Add Shipping Line windows allows you to retrieve updated information on the ports and carriers you are using. Clicking on the button applies the updates to your ports and carriers.
The list of the airlines the customers can be registered with via the e-AWB module has been updated.
The Detailed Shipment Charges Analysis report now shows the payables from invoices with Waiting for Approval status.
The current time ranges in the Aging – Statement Summarized report can be replaced with the following new ranges: 1-15 days, 16-30 days, 1-24 days, 25-30 days.
To add these ranges to your template, please contact us at http://email@example.com.
The following changes have been performed in routing query columns in Shipment views:
Logitude allows you to customize your documents and reports, and manage your own templates. We continue to improve these options and add more variables for selection.
In this version, the following new variables have been added to different documents and reports:
ETD and ETA: the expected time of departure and arrival for all transshipments.
Bill To/Vendor: a variable that prints the name of the Bill To or the Vendor.
