A Shipment is a document that keeps track of real-world Shipments created against a Delivery Note or independently.
Shipments are particularly useful for shippers who want to track all their Shipment information such as AWB Number, Shipment Status, Carrier, etc. within OneOfficeERP.
To access the Shipment list, go to:
Home > Stock > Stock Transactions > Shipment
