About the flow chart and associated documents

  • What are Ocean Freight Process Documents?

    Ocean Freight Process Documents include an Ocean Freight Master Operating Procedure (MOP), Ocean Freight Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) and Ocean Freight Local Operating Procedures (LOP).

    Each Document details WHO is responsible for WHAT activity WHEN and explains WHY the action/activity is relevant. Some logistics activity may not seem logical to certain staff or functions as they do not always see the bigger picture. Our documents and training material clarify the importance of specific actions which in turn improve the quality of product and individual/team sense of worth/importance in the business as a whole.

  • What are Ocean Freight Structured Message Templates?

    Ocean Freight Structured Message Templates are documents which are created to support the efficient, compliant movement of goods from one point to another. These include manifests, Bills of Lading, inventory, checklist, audits, and reports. Each document is structured as it contains necessary detail to support an action or an informed decision.

    Ocean Freight Structured Message Templates are integrated into all our apps and can be customised with your company details to provide a seamless white label solution. You can even control who prints what, a necessary control feature to support specific security legislation in a growing number of countries.

  • What does the Ocean Freight Training Material include?

    The Ocean Freight Training Material includes detailed documents which explain how to complete a certain activity of function. The documents include screen shots and examples which can be followed in a logical sequence. Certain training processes also include video clips which walk through each application process, step by step to support your familiarization with our Ocean Freight applications.

    Need to track your staff training? Ocean Freight Training Material is linked to a training record which allows you to identify which staff have completed training on each application. This tool includes dates, reports and generates automatic reminders to your staff to ensure training compliance in all associated disciplines. A key tool for multi-nationals who often need to demonstrate a robust training package as part of compliance audits.
