Scanning Consignments to a Trailer

'Scan to trailer' functionality is provided by the use of Manifest Group Codes, each of which is associated with a particular vehicle. You assign each consignment to one of these codes prior to manifesting so that you can then trace consignments to the specific trailer or carton/cage.

Note

Manifest Group Codes (Trailer IDs) can be used across multiple carriers. However, you can only manifest consignments for one single carrier/warehouse combination at a time.

To scan consignments to Manifest Group Codes prior to manifesting, you can either:
