A master shipment is created where a group of house shipments are all destined for the same discharge port and can be combined in one or more containers covered by a single master shipment. The house shipments are typically transported to a container freight station where they are stuffed in a container and an ocean bill of lading representing the combined cargo is presented to the carrier. The containerized shipment arrives at the port of discharge, the container is transported to a container freight station in the importing country and the receiving agent makes arrangement for de-stuffing the container and distribution of the individual cargoes.

A minimum of one house shipment is required to create a consolidation.


Create a consolidated shipment by clicking the "New" option on the Scope sea export menu bar and from the list of shipment types select "Master shipment". This will open the master shipment "General " tab.
