Dispatching: Create a manifest or a tour

Step-by-step instructions

To create a tour from several shipments in the Logistiqo transport management software, proceed as follows:

  1. Go to “Shipments>Dispatching” in the menu.
  2. Explanation of the tables:
    1. “SENDER-/RECEIVER VIEW” TABLE: The table below shows all collections and deliveries that are not scheduled. This means that if a shipment has a sender and a receiver, two lines are shown in the table: one line for the collection and one for the delivery. If a shipment has two collections and two deliveries, the table shows four lines: two lines for the two collections and two lines for the two deliveries.
    2. MANIFEST TABLE: In the table on the right under “Details”, the created manifests or tours are displayed.
  3. To create a new tour, select the desired positions in the “Sender/Receiver view” table by holding down the CTRL or SHIFT key on your keyboard. Filter and choose e.g. all collections within a certain period and a certain zip code.
  4. Click on “New” in the toolbar.
  5. After you have created the manifest, you can still add more items by selecting one or more collections or deliveries in the “Sender/Receiver view” table and then clicking the “Add” button.
  6. The sequence of the collections and deliveries are shifted by drag & drop: Click on a collection or delivery, keep the mouse pressed and move the pick-up or delivery to the desired location.
  7. In the “Reference” field you can give the manifest a name, e.g. “MONDAY TOUR” to find the manifest better.
  8. In the fields “Subcontractor”, “Vehicle” and “Driver”, you can assign the manifest to a person responsible.
  9. Save the manifest by clicking “Save” in the toolbar.
  10. You can now print the manifest by clicking the “Print” icon.
