You can define vessel rates, which work in a similar way to shipping line rates; for example, you can define a rate for tieing up a specific vessel if it takes longer than other vessels.
You can also define rates for specified vessel types, vessel visit types, and berths.
The Service Schedule screen enables you to create a service that uses the Vessel Rate rate type, as shown in the following diagram.
After you have defined a service, you can define a rate for the vessel by using the Rate History screen.
The Searcher pane for the Rate History and Rate Table screens has a Vessel Rates sheet, which enables you to search for or maintain the vessel rates for a service.
>>To define a vessel rate for a service
- Open the Rate History screen.
- On the Vessel Rates sheet of the Searcher pane, specify the vessel and service, and then click the Find button.
- Click the New toolbar button and then set up the rate. The screen that is displayed depends on the calculation type of the service. An example of the screen for a unit‑based rate is shown in the following diagram.
- Specify the rate details and then click the Save button.
If a service with a Vessel Rate rate type is attached to an invoice line type that is mapped in the transaction map, the system attempts to find a rate for the vessel to use in its calculations when that invoice line type is triggered.
If the system can find a vessel, and that vessel has a rate configured for the service, that rate is used to calculate the invoice line total. If the system cannot find a vessel rate, the system looks for a debtor rate for the service, instead.
