The Payment Screen allows the Customer lay out who will pay for the various charges asociated with the shippment.
When creating a booking shippers are required to assign paying parties for Origin, Freight and Destination charges.
Shippers can select Consignor, Consignee, Booked by Party and Notified Party from a dropdown list.
When the various Origin, Freight an Destination charges are applied, Kontainers determines if the booking type and the payment structure conforms to an official UN definition of Incoterms. This incoterm value is passed back to the Administration system as part of the booking information.
Experience has shown that we have many customers that do not always adhare to incoterms during booking for various reasons, especially for operational purposes. In other cases, small to medium sized bookers are not familiar with the diffferent terms.
For this reason we do not pre-fill the Payment form and require the booker to select the payment terms that they wish to apply.
Incoterm is a formal description how payment is made and would cover most payment distributions in the forwarding industry. If the customer does not apply a formal Incoterm pattern to the type of shippment booked we show a warning but do not stop them making the booking.
