The Landbridge module is an optional extension to the
FreightDATA Intermodal application and is flexible with the way a carrier does
their billing. Some of the flag setting are "Enter Chassis",
"Multiple Dates" (on a single bill), "Driver Info Required"
(allows pre-entry of containers and/or chassis without driver code), "Sort
by Container" and "Revenue Distribution".
Billing Entry allows up to 999 containers and/or chassis per
invoice. The vessel name, driver pay amount, billing amount, container/chassis
size, movement date(s), equipment type and direction of movement (i.e.:
Eastbound, Westbound, etc.) are entered as invoice header information. Container
and/or chassis numbers are entered in the invoice line items with associated
driver. Depending on how the carrier has their Landbridge flags set, additional
date may also be entered. If any accessorial/miscellaneous charges apply they
may also be entered. These charges are selected from a "Miscellaneous
Charge Master File" pre-determined by the carrier.
The invoices remain in the "Landbridge Entry File"
until the carrier selects it as complete and moves it into billing. When the
invoices are selected they are printed, A/R is posted and driver payment info is
updated for later processing.
