Scope offers four types of shipment statistics:
including all shipment types
including only air export and air import shipments
including only sea export and sea import shipments
including only consolidated shipments
Because all these types of applications are working in the same way, only the general statistic is described in detail here.
The differences and additional functionalities are described in the appropriate sections below.
The example mentioned below shows the result of a search run over all shipment types. Users interested only in seafreight, airfreight or consol statistics should choose the appropriate application from the menu.
To open a shipment which is selected in the result table, the user just click onto the open-button in the title bar.
The search run can be started again by clicking onto the refresh-button in the title bar. The list of the found shipments, depending on the search criteria, will be displayed immediately.
If a shipment was cancelled it appears in the result list but striked through. The open-button in the title bar is still available but will not work with cancelled shipments.
If the search result is too big to be displayed onto one page, one may browse through the pages by using the buttons shown below:
On the lefthand of the page the currently selected row in the displayed list is shown and the number of available rows in the result list.
Below this information a short summary is displayed which shows the totals of all shipments included in the result list.
This calculation is not filtered in any way. It just shows the totals overall.
The user may group charge types to display only amounts for the included charge types. A group can be created by clicking onto the value shown beside the Charge Type Group Label:
To add an item to the group of selected charge types, the user clicks on the appropriate row in the lefthand list and then onto the
Vice versa the user may remove a charge type from the list of selected charge types by selecting this charge type and clicking onto the button. The item will disappear from the list of selected items and is shown in the list of available charge types again.
Discarding all changes is done by clicking onto the
By saving the changes - use the button - the window is closed and the changes comes into effect:
The displayed calculation will disappear by clicking on thebutton.
Basically, the option Calculate amounts will do the same, considering an eventually selected filter by grouping charge types as described above.
This option offers a fast access to recently used statistics over frequently used charge types.
The user should be aware that this option does not show the overall amounts if a charge type group is selected.
The application offers an export function to be able to work on the displayed shipments in another system, e.g. Excel:
If no user defined output format is stored the export application will send all shipment data to the external editor, e.g. Excel:
The above example shows the cutout of the output if the users had choosed Detailed Statistics.
To receive an output where the data is grouped, the user may click the function Grouped Statistics. A windows opens from where the user may arrange a grouping by several criteria:
The functionality is the same as described in similar selection applications. Additionally the user is able to sort the choosen criteria and therefore the grouping itself by using the up- and down-buttons.
If the option Show Subtotals is selected, the generated output contains a sub totals row at the end of every group as shown below:
Another example shows the generated output for the Accounting Statistics:
To not deliver all columns to the external editor everytime, the user is able to select the columns which are to be exported:
The user may select a previously stored layout by clicking on the drop-down list. If the option n/a is selected, all columns will be exported.
To create, delete or edit a previously defined layout, the function labeled User defined Layouts may be used:
From here one can edit or delete an existing layout or create a new one:
The name of the layout is entered in the text field labeled as Code.
The exported statistic output will contain all the columns mentioned in the righthand list Chosen.
The sample shown below displays the output for the above described selection:
