Step 2 Sailing
Progress of the sailing
In this step you will find the progress of the sailing. As soon as your supplier (jargon: Shipper) has delivered the goods at the loading port at The Freight Hero-agent, he hands over the Bill of Lading details, after which the agent draws up the Bill of Lading (jargon: Draft B/L) copy. Once the freight information has been received from your supplier, Step 1 Supplier has been automatically completed (see screenshot: step 1 is green and checked) and in Step 2 you will see the Bill of Lading Copy. This Copy B/L will be sent to you by The Freight Hero by e-mail, but at the same time you will find it in your customer environment.
Arrival and delivery date
You will receive an update by e-mail as soon as the cargo is on board and the boat has left and you will see that Step 2 sailing has been completed (see screenshot: step 2 is green and checked). You will see on the right side at the same time that the status "The cargo is on board" and "The container ship has left" will automatically be updated by a check mark. You will also see the arrival and delivery date of the shipment on the top right. These can change during the voyage. You will receive, if applicable, e-mail updates.
Now that the sailing has commenced, it will take several weeks - depending on the sailing in question - before the ship arrives at the destination port. Previously, The Freight Hero will provide the declaration for you. The progress of this, you will find Step 3: Customs. (Click through for further explanation.)
