Version 2019.7

Updated by Tony Runyan

Improved Support for Lithium Batteries

We've added a special "Air/Ground Exception Type" for Lithium Batteries which takes in to account the battery properties and how they are shipped. This allows for more accurate reporting to the carriers so that ORM-D and Limited Quantities designations can be more strictly adhered to and so are not needed for Lithium battery exceptions, helping to avoid restrictions or additional surcharges in some situations.

New regulation options available:
  • Lithium Battery Material:
    • Lithium-Ion
    • Lithium Metal
  • Lithium Battery Packing:
    • Contained in equipment
    • Packed with equipment
  • Air/Ground Exception Type:
    • Lithium Batteries (IATA Section II)
    • Excepted Quantity
As Lithium Batteries are now more clearly separated from ORM-D and Limited Quantity exceptions you may need to update some Regulations and Products in your current Catalog to accurately specify your product data and avoid carrier restrictions or surcharges.

FedEx Electronic Letterhead and Signatures

Some countries require the Commercial Invoice has either company letterhead, a signature or both to be accepted by customs. You can now upload your letterhead image and your signature image to RSF's WMS and it will be uploaded to FedEx on the fly to be used on your Commercial Invoices to select countries.

UPS Commercial Invoices and Paperless Invoices

RSF will now receive and save the customs documents for international shipments from UPS allowing you to use UPS international services with ease. If you are enrolled in the UPS Paperless Invoice program these documents will be transmitted electronically to avoid having to print and attach paper copies as well.

Shipment Item Lots/Expirations Reporting

A shipment item Lots Export feature is now available on the Orders, Shipments, and Lots grids Additionally a "Shipments" tab is on the left in the Lot View page. These updates are available for both admins and client users.

Reorganized Menus

We've reorganized and cleaned up the admin and client UI menus. These kinds of changes are sometimes hard to get used to initially but the new organization should make better sense in the long run and we've optimized the most-used options toward the top of the menus. These new menu categories also better correspond better to our documentation organization.

  • Sales is now Shipping
  • Deliveries is now Receiving
  • Warehouse is now Operations
  • Various sub-menu items have been relocated or renamed

How did we do?
