Shipment Bookings and Instructions

Book capacity with ocean carriers and easily add instructions and service details to simplify operations.

Book Shipments and Get Moving

Access the industry’s largest logistics ecosystem of carriers using E2open’s Shipment Bookings and Instructions application. Select the best rates and schedules, book directly with carriers, receive e-confirmations and send shipping instructions.

Streamline and simplify tasks, all in one place:

  • Easily Connect to a Range of Carriers
    Booking ocean shipments on a single connected platform streamlines back-office tasks by displaying all carrier choices without the need to pivot between systems.

  • Create Bookings Your Way
    Flexible options enable you to create a booking request from scratch, a predefined template or an existing booking.

  • Leverage One Connected Portal
    Carriers and non-vessel-operating common carriers (NVOCCs) can receive bookings and respond with confirmations via the same portal to streamline communication.

  • Move Away from Manual Methods
    By electronically transmitting carrier booking requests and shipping instructions, you eliminate the need for manual communication and the resulting downstream errors.

  • Improve Compliance Screening
    An automated system screens shipments against restricted goods and party lists, making it easier to achieve regulatory compliance and protect your organization.

  • Monitor In-Transit Shipments
    Easy integration with E2open’s In-Transit Visibility application empowers you to track shipments that are en-route to their destinations around the globe.
