Externally monitored reefer containers are becoming common meaning Terminals need to be methodical when determining whether a reefer requires manual monitoring at the terminal.
You can now configure a default value for the ‘Is Externally Monitored’ check box for an operator. The default value is then used when you:
- Create a pre‑notified reefer container either manually or by EDI
- Gate in a reefer container
- Edit the operator of a reefer container on the Cargo Enquiry screen
Under System Operations>System Admin under the Operator table on the Terminal Configuration tab, select whether you want the ‘Is Externally Monitored’ option to be set to ‘on’ every time a reefer container for that Operator is prenoted or received into the terminal.
A new permission is available to control whether a user can override this setting. For terminal security roles, under Administration there is a new permission “Is Externally Monitored Maintenance”. This will be set by default for all security roles.
This new configuration is available from 8.5.1.050 (May 2017)
