Fast Entry of Bookings.
Bookings can be created prior to generating shipments even when data is incomplete, enabling pick-up services or airline bookings to be generated in advance. Subsequently, bookings can be converted into shipments. Via Scope Connect, customers can create their own web bookings which are automatically visible as bookings in air freight software Scope and can be converted into shipments.
Quotation With Conversion Into Shipments.
Quotations can be generated as ad hoc or contract based and presented to customers as offers. Quotations can be converted into bookings or shipments at any time. An overview indicates which quotations have been converted into shipments or bookings and how many times this has occurred. Scope automatically displays if a new shipment matches an existing quotation.
Carrier Bookings For Single And Collective Consignments.
Provided an airline supports the transaction, bookings can be created electronically from Scope and transmitted to directly or via email with attached PDF. In consol shipments, users get an overview of total capacities used for each airline booking. When a consolidation creates an overbooking, Scope generates an alert to enable the user to book additional capacity.
Administration of Carrier AWB Numbers With Automated Re-Stock-Function.
Users do not have to ll in and manage AWBs manually, these can be drawn directly during entry. If the carrier changes, the unused AWB will be re-stocked to the AWB pool, ready for use in other shipments. In addition, AWB numbers of third party agents (e.g. IGLU) can be used in Scope. These are automatically checked if the AWB number belongs to the respective issuing agent.
Connection To Cargo Community Systems.
On completion of the AWB, FWB (e-AWB) and FHL messages will be submitted automatically to the corresponding CCS via clearing center. Confirmation and responses from the airline are automatically imported into air cargo software Scope and displayed within the shipment entry.
Automated Or Manual Departure Control.
Air cargo software Scope checks whether ights have departed on schedule or if undesired delays have occurred which would impact the entire supply chain. When an automated status report is not submitted by the airline, users can manually retrieve the schedules and include them.
Editing And Administration of Consol Flight Schedules With Gateway Function.
In order to avoid continuously editing recurring master shipments, an internal flight schedule can be generated from existing documents and published as gateway. Thus all branches have access to the timetable and can consolidate their house shipments directly on the master shipment. Complete control over how branches may book on the gateway (directly to consol or pre-booked for consol) can be de ned by authorization or restrictions.
Net Rate Overview With Search and Export Function.
This application within Scope enables fast and secure evaluation of the most favorable carrier tariffs including freight costs (e.g. fuel, security). Net rates are displayed in the overview of quotations, booking and shipment modules to allow immediate guaranteed offers to be issued to customers.
