How a vessel ETD is managed
At regular periods the system will upload a list of schedules for vessels including their estimated time of departure (ETD).
It takes time to prepare a container for transport so we have a built-in rule that will prevent users from booking a vessel too close to departure. By default, the rule is set to 6 days in advance of any sailing.
What this means is that the booking engine will not allow you book from that port unless there is a vessel scheduled to leave with an ETD date of 6 days or more
To verify the sailing date, Administrators can go to the 'Shipping' page in the Administrator UI and view the vessel sailing dates for any particular port pair.
Note: This 6 day ETD lead time is a 'global setting' and can be configured.
