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’ 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.
The new Filing Inbox module offers an alternative solution to the Outlook Connection Add-In that is used to synchronize Outlook with Logitude Activities and Documents. This module operates even when your mail is not connected to an Exchange Server.
Filing Inbox is available only for First Class package customers. It allows users to file email attachments – especially documents from customers, carriers or other partners, directly under the Docs In tab of a selected shipment or quote. Each user in Filing Inbox is assigned an inbox to which emails from Outlook and other mail accounts are sent. The user opens the emails in his workspace from where he can perform the document filing actions.

The Multiple Currency feature has been developed in the Accounts Payable – Payments module in order to accommodate for situations where AP invoices are received in different currencies but payment needs to be made in local currency, or vice versa. It provides the following options:
This feature can be activated by setting on the Enable multi-currency AP payments parameter under the Account Payables section in Accounting | Settings | Accounting Settings.
The Quantity unit of measurement (UOM) has been added to the Units of Measurement table, and it can be used both for cost and sales charges in shipments and in quotes. Assigning this UOM to one of the charges in quotes or shipments, will automatically fill the Quantity field with the total number of packages in the relevant entity. Using this UOM can replace the use of multiple charge lines with the Fixed unit of measure.
The following new features in the Shared Logistics with Agents module are available for customers with the Business Package or higher.
In addition to the capability of sharing documents between two agent environments via Logitude, a new functionality now allows sharing the documents via email. Once the sharing documents settings are defined, clicking the Docs Shared with Agent link in the Send Message dialog box opens the Share Documents window with the option to attach documents directly to your email.
In the Share Documents dialog box, you can now build and upload documents so they become ready for sharing directly. From here, you can also view and update the documents. These new options make it easy to have all the documents ready for sharing from the same dialog box.
– SAT Failed Invoices under the Invoices section
– SAT Failed Payments under the Payments section
We are happy to announce that all accounting invoices (including customs invoices, auto credits, credit notes, etc.) generated via Logitude are now being taken into consideration for transferring via the Online QuickBooks US and Global Interfaces.

In the new Accounting Payment Methods table under Maintenance | Billings, it is possible to create your own payment methods (including fields such as value date, payment reference, bank, bank branch and account), which can be used both for receivables and payables payments.
The Enabled for AR Payments option needs to be set in order to use the payment method in receivable payments. The Enabled for AP Payments option needs to be set in order to use the payment method in payables payments.
The Notes added by the operational team to the charge lines of unaccounted receivables, via the Receivables tab of a shipment, are now displayed to Accounting when working with the actual invoice for those receivables, and they are also printed on the invoice.
The Connect Packages button has been added to the Packages tab of the Container Delivery, for connecting packages. This makes it possible to link different containers to the same delivery.
The changes in the Container Delivery leg will affect all the containers connected to that delivery. For example, if the date of the delivery is updated from the delivery leg, the date will change in all connected containers.
The following query columns have been added to the Containers Follow Up views – In Transit, Arrived Not Delivered and Delivered not Returned:
Improvements have been introduced to the following reports:
The Competitor filter can be used to create a list of customers for the same competitor.
As in other dashboards in Logitude, the performance and activity statistics in CRM dashboards can now also be presented for any time frame, and not only for the predefined ranges as before (last 7 days, last month, etc.). Selecting the Custom option from the Time Range picklist, enables you to choose dates for any period of time.
The Additional Fields section that has been added to the Customs tab in shipments, is intended for managing your own custom fields. To add new fields to this section, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
The Contacts List, opened from the Send Message dialog box for choosing the mail recipients, can now be sorted by the Notes column for easier selection of contacts.
The All Users tab has been added to the Contacts List dialog box, which lists all the active users in your environment. You can navigate to that tab to add a user as a recipient of the outgoing email.
The Reference 1 field has been added to the Notify 1, Notify 2, Shipper Not Exporter and Consignee Not Importer partners in a shipment. It appears in the Add Partner dialog box after you select the partner type via the Add Partners button in the Partners tab of the shipment.
The way the Received Date field works in Docs In of shipments, quotes, and other entities has been improved. When a document is uploaded to Docs In, the Received Date will now automatically show the date of the upload. This date can be changed using the date picker in the field.
You can search quote records now also by Notes.
In all Partner (Customers, Truckers, Agents…) and Port Search screens, the State column has been added next to the Country column. It shows the state for records where the state is defined for the country.
The size of the Commodity Code has been increased from 7 to 15 digits. However, the restrictions remain for e-AWB and INTTRA transmissions.
The following columns are available for use in queries:
Several new variables have been added to different documents:
