How do I report picked-up containers?

Have more questions? Submit a request

To report picked-up containers, Suppliers and Users can open the Leasing deal and click on the Report pickup button in the middle of the page:

 

 

You will then be able to choose between reporting containers “manually” i.e. one container after the other or reporting multiple containers “in bulk” i.e. multiple once at a time.

 

How can I report containers manually (one at a time)? 

If you choose to report containers manually you will need to fill in the following fields:

  • Release reference
  • Container number
  • Source: Specify if this is being reported by the User or the Supplier.
  • Pickup date.

After you have filled out the requested fields:

  1. Click on the + Add Container button

  2. You will then get the opportunity to review the data you just entered, and you can edit it if needed.
  3. If the information is correct, you can then finalize the process by clicking on
    Add as picked-up

 

How can I report containers in Bulk? 

If you choose to report containers in bulk, you will be able to either drag and drop a file containing pick-up information or copy-paste the containers’ pickup data in the free field box:

  • You can check the data you just entered, and delete it if any correction is needed.
  • To complete the process you will need to click on the Add as picked-up button.
  • Once this information is added, your partner on the deal will be informed automatically.

 

Why is it so important to report pick-up dates? 

Reporting pick-up dates in the app allows you to: 

  • Get a centralized overview of the whereabouts of your containers 
  • Having your wallet updated in real-time flow
  • Reduce redundant work during the invoicing process - no more invoice errors!

xChange container monitoring service 

In addition to this in-app functionality, the xChange team is here to support you with the monitoring of container movements and the reporting of pick-up (and drop-off) dates. 

  • Why?
    • There are instances where collecting pickup information can be tedious for both container suppliers and container users. Our team is here to support you with your daily operations. 

  • How does it work?
    • Our international team is working with the depots mentioned in each deal and monitors which containers were picked up and when.
    • Once they collect this information, they report it automatically in the deal - removing the need for you to perform the task. 

 

xChange integrations offering 

Our internal team is also offering integration options to reduce your manual work when you report pick-up or drop-off data. 

  • Why?
    • As a container supplier, your depot might send you daily movement reports anyway. 

  • How does it work?
    • Our team offers two integration types:
      • Supplier integration (container suppliers can share with us these daily/ weekly movement reports, in the format of their choice)
      • Depot integration (depots share with us directly daily movement reports, removing the need for suppliers to perform any action)

To learn more about the xChange container monitoring service or our integration offering, you can contact us at conops@container-xchange.com.
