BOL Part Description

Hi Eric,

We're trying to implement BOL's here. It's been a slow process, complicated by the bug in the 'Generate...' command, our confusion with the Log / BOL / Pro numbers, the carrier's non-conformity on waybill labeling, and the skeletal format of the canned report.

The bug is that "Generate..." is supposed to create a separate BOL for every ship to address on the selected list of packing slips. The reality is that it reads the ship to data from the header level of the sales order, which may differ from the release level of the sales order.

We've used many carrier's forms over the years. Some forms are labeled waybills, some airbills, but most are labeled Bills of Lading. Because of this, we assumed that the number on the carrier's form was the BOL number. In Vantage, this is the Pro number. The BOL number is the number that Vantage assigns when you add or generate new BOL's.

The packing slip Log number is, under some circumstances, the field the links the packing slip to the Vantage created BOL number. (If you've created BOL #10, then plug "10" into the log field of the packing slip, that packing slip becomes linked to the BOL.) Packing slips that are linked to a BOL through the generate feature, automatically have the BOL number entered into the Log field.

The canned report is bare bones. Our intent is to create a version that is acceptable to most of our carrier's, so that we can reduce the hand writing of waybills.

I've learned a lot about shipping lately, and one good source was roadway.com

About part descriptions, we don't need them on the BOL. They are on the packing slips and on the customs forms. But our carrier's only want to know the shipping units (crates, skids, etc.)

Hi All,

Does anyone use the Bill Of Lading function in Vantage 3 or 4? If so,
is there any way to get the Part Description on each line of the BOL?
We are currently running 3.0 patch32, but in the process of testing
4.0. Help in either 3 or 4 would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance,
