The Cargo Booking form enables you to match a Cargo Booking with a Cargo COA contract.
To open the Cargo Booking form, do one of the following:
- In the Chartering module center , under Cargo, click Multiple Cargo Booking.
- On the Calculation tab of the Laytime Calculation or Booking-Based Laytime Calculation form, if a booking number has been assigned to a cargo, you can right-click its itinerary line and then click View Booking Details.
Enabling Cargo Booking also adds:
- An Extra Freight Term: Lumpsum per booking (code LB). When included on multiple Cargoes that are part of the same booking, it only applies to the Cargo with the lowest ID in that booking to which it has been added for both P&L and Freight Invoice. If that Cargo is removed from the booking, the Extra Freight Term will be applied to the new lowest ID in the booking. The Extra Freight Term will remain visible on any contracts to which it is added, but it will only be invoiced once per booking and will only appear on the Voyage P&L once per booking.
- A Booking No. field to nonincremental Freight Invoices; after a Counterparty is selected, you can select one booking of that Counterparty on the voyage, so that only those Cargoes are included on the invoice.
- Use tools on the toolbar to retrieve, or create records.
