Importing Port Advances

The port advances submitted by agents need to follow the right order of submission, first Port Disbursement Advance (PDA) and then Final Port Disbursement (FDA), in order to be linked successfully in the Veson IMOS Platform. The FDA form uses the Advance Inv No. field, which helps to identify the port advance number that was submitted earlier.
