IMOS - Creating Cargoes & Cargo Templates

Home > Chartering > Creating Cargoes & Cargo Templates

Creating Cargo

To create Cargoes, that is, liftings, under a Cargo COA:

  1. On the Cargo COA, click Cargo ▼ and then click Create Cargo.

    On the Create Cargo Setup form, the Total Liftings becomes the Number of Cargoes.

  2. In the Create From field, select one of the following:

    1. COA: Enter the values individually.

    2. Template: Select any Template linked to the COA; all Cargoes will be created based on this template.

  3. Change any setup options and click Create. The liftings appear below, using the first Cargo, Load Port, and Discharge Port options.

  4. Adjust the Total Qty and liftings, if needed, then click OK to create the Cargoes.

Cargoes appear on the Linked Liftings tab, where they can be updated. If the COA Cargo grid is not empty, newly created Cargoes default to the name of the first Cargo in the grid.

Creating a Cargo Template

Cargo Templates enable you to create multiple liftings based on the same specifications. You can create Cargo Templates associated with COA contracts and create liftings based on them.

On the Cargo COA, click Cargo ▼ and then click Create Template.

The Template is almost the same as the Cargo form, with an additional Template name field on the right, and values based on the COA.

Editing a Template

To edit a template, On the Cargo form, click Menu ▼, hover over Templates, and then click Retrieve a template.

If Cargoes are created with a template but are never linked to the COA, they become undiscoverable in the Chartering module but can be reported on. The COA-less template Cargoes are still in the database but, because of the status of the COA or other constraints with the COA, they can no longer be actioned on and are not visible in the user interface. When reports are run, they take all information from the database, which is why such Cargoes can appear in reports.

Related Configuration Flags



Default Cargo Status

Sets the default status of the linked liftings. If set to 1 when the user does not have rights to edit confirmed cargoes, the Status on the Create Cargo/VC In Setup form is set to Inquiry.

Confirm Linked Liftings via COA

Updates the status of the linked liftings from their current state (for example, Default) to Confirmed once the status of the parent COA is changed from Pending to Confirmed.

Enable Cargo Booking

Enables the Cargo Booking form. Also adds 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.

Note: The setting of this config flag determines whether the No. of Cargoes in Booking variable is available on the Pricing Rule form:

  • N: Not available

  • Y: Available
