What's Changing?

Below is an overview of the updates we will release into CargoDocs version 20.1:

  1. Ability to collaborate on Shipment-level documents in DocHub – Users can now send shipment-level documents such as Shipping Instructions, LOIs and Letters of Credit for approval using Collaborative Drafting in DocHub. Previously, this was restricted to parcel-level documents
     
  2. UI changes to display Shipment Documents – Shipment-level documents can now be viewed and actioned from the Inbox
     
  3. Improved LOI functionality – Building on our previous release’s Letters of Indemnity (LOI) improvements, users can now send LOIs for Approvals to the Owner and Buyer. This feature allows the Exporter to quickly have LOIs reviewed and approved before printing, avoiding the cumbersome use of email and downloading/scanning documents. In addition, users can now unfile whole Shipments 

    Note: This functionality has not been implemented for all users; please contact us if you require more information and/or a demo of this feature. ​​
     
  4. DocHub email notifications opt-out – Users can now opt-out of notifications in DocHub if required
     
  5. New templates – We have designed and implemented a range of new Shipping Document templates including Delivery Orders, Commercial Invoices, Certificates of Analysis plus many more.

    Note: please contact us if your require more information on accessing these templates, or if you require us to create your own custom document templates for DocHub
