Basic shipment information
When opening a Tradeflow, you will be greeted with an overview of all shipments. The partners in a Tradeflow are listed under the Tradeflow name. When a company is listed here, all its employees with access to Dockflow can view this Tradeflow.
Navigating between shipments
A Tradeflow can contain multiple shipments, although in practice about 95% of Tradeflows have only one shipment. If your Tradeflow has multiple shipments, you can navigate between them by swiping through the names in the “Shipments” pane.
Important milestones are displayed in chronological order from top to bottom. Timestamp are on the left, location- and other data is on the right. On the line in the center, flags or transport mode icons indicate the country or type of transport.
To view detailed information on important shipment events, touch or click the specific event. Additional information will open below.
You can view, add or re-upload shipment documents in the “Documents” tab, located in the “Shipments” pane. To view a document, click the download symbol (down arrow) next to the document type.

If you need more technical details of updates to the shipment (for example for bug reports or testing with developers), open the “Shipment statuses” tab.
To view what is happening to a specific container, head over to the “Containers” pane in the top navigation bar in the Tradeflow.
