Shipment Charges Fact 

New operational, routing and charge type details (e.g. Is expense) fields are available for adding to BI reports based on the Shipment Charges fact. 

Cross Docks Import Improvements

More developments have been introduced to the Cross Docks module to improve the relation/connection between the shipment/warehouse leg and Cross Docks Entries and releases, like:

  • Update Shipment Delivery Dates from Cross Dock Release
  • Update Warehouse Entry/Release Dates from Connected Entries/Releases

 

INTTRA Enhancements

Internal Packages HS Codes

It is now possible to assign the HS code in the internal packages and not only at the container level. This will allow users to specify the appropriate HS code per package instead of adding all the codes in the container. 

For INTTRA, if the HS codes are assigned at the internal package level, they will be transmitted in the shipping instructions. When there are no HS codes for internal packages, the HS code will be taken from the container level as before.

Address Type

When adding a new address for a partner in a shipment/quote, users can choose the address type. By default, when adding an address from the pickup/delivery, its type will be pickup/delivery if the partner has no address defined for pickup/delivery. It is also possible to indicate that the new address is the ‘Billing Address’ or ‘Others’.

Quote Enhancements

Quote Closing Reasons

The new option Quote Closing Reasons can be used for adding new closing reasons to the existing list. These will be available for selection when a quote is declined by the customer. 

Automatic Closure of Quote

The Close Automatically As Declined option in the New Quote wizard is now selected by default, 

Build Shipment from Quote: Pickup/Delivery Address

While building a new shipment from a quote, where pickup/delivery is marked, the system will check whether the customer has an additional pickup/delivery address before taking the main address by default.

Accounting Enhancements

AR Invoice Paid Date

A new field – Paid Date, has been added to the AR Invoice. This field will hold the date of the last payment that closed all of the amount due in the invoice. The Paid Date column is available in queries and can be used in AR Invoices automation.

Accounting System Dialog Box

The fields in the Account Transfer Settings dialog box (Accounting | Settings | Accounting System) were reorganized for better usability.

Partners External Accounting ID

It is now possible to manage External IDs for partners, by currencies. For example, a partner can have a Receivable External ID for USD and a different one for EUR. This feature is enabled by selecting the Split By Currency option in the Accounting tab of a partner. Then, the external account numbers can be entered by the relevant currencies for that partner. 

Mobile Improvements

Updated Version of the Logitude Mobile Application

The updated version of the Logitude Mobile application meets the following new requirements: 

  • The application was built with the iOS 13 SDK and uses an Xcode storyboard to provide the launch screen.
  • It supports all iPhone screens.

Cross-Site Scripting Protection (X-XSS) and X-Content-Type-Options Security Headers
