Define costsDefine costs

Your specific calculations for each cost

You can define each cost (handling rule) with a comprehensive cost calculator. Dolphins gives you the ability to calculate costs based on load status (PCF, VPF, etc), freight dates (Arrival-, invoice date) and weight or volume (if applicable).
When drawing up the bill the actual data will be used to calculate the amounts. Deviating calculations on renewal/extension are possible. The calculations can be entered per carrier and thus differ.


Cargo tracking

Keep track of your cargo. Status of loads can be changed manually or by data import from the terminal.
Use different filters to find freight quickly. Based on Voyage, Bill of Lading number. Cargo type FCL, LCL or vehicles.
