With the Multi-Device Position Tracking System coming into play, and new messaging possibilities, I have been updating the list of event codes that can be applied to an order.
Events are used to trigger optional notifications.
Customs Delay: Added to support the new status codes 76 through 88. Previously the system only support arrive and depart customs. Now there is the possibility to add a delay notification via the MDPTS message processing. Only Canada and US customs are supported at this time.
Customs Seal Apply, Customs Seal Remove: These events are available via the MDPTS message processing to record customs seals as they are altered and match up to the status code 22 (Seals Altered).
Ferry Arrive, Ferry On Board, Ferry Depart: While the old QTRACS Integration Module knew about the Ferry Arrive and Ferry Depart messages it did not process them. Now the MDPTS system will process the messages and trigger the events against the applicable orders. The events correspond to: vehicle arrived at the ferry staging area, vehicle has boarded the ferry, vehicle has left the ferry departure area.
Agent Delivery, Agent Pickup: The old QTRACS Integration Module handled these messages but no events were ever triggered. Now with the MDPTS system events will be triggered when a shipment is delivered or picked up at an agent. This may also be used for “interline” as well.
Pickup Attempt: An attempt to pick up the shipment has been made. A reason is part of the message processed by the MDPTS system. This attempt should correspond to status codes 9000 through 9013.
Pickup Redirect: The vehicle arrived at the pickup location as per the bill of lading only to be directed to another location.
Pickup Delay: The vehicle arrived at the pickup location but has experienced a delay in the loading.
Delivery Attempt: An attempt to deliver the shipment has been made. A reason is part of the message processed by the MDPTS system. This attempt should correspond to status codes 10000 through 10013.
Delivery Redirect: The vehicle arrived at the delivery location as per the bill of lading only to be directed to another location.
Delivery Delay: The vehicle arrived at the delivery location but has experienced a delay in the unloading.
