Offload Manifest Document: Formatting Updates

In addition to updating our Offload Manifest Document to include pickup and linehaul legs, we have made some formatting improvements to help dock workers find the essential information they need, faster.

Key improvements include:

  • Shipper Field: This will now populate with the true shipper name, indicating the origin of the shipment, not the origin of the leg. This improvement will make it easier for dock workers to reference freight as it’s offloaded.
  • Commodity Description: Each commodity description now lines up with the corresponding row information for better organization and easy readability.
  • Removed Logo: To save room and make better use of document space, company logos will no longer appear.
  • Manifest Notes: The notes box has been reformatted to allow for larger text and longer notes.
  • Freight Unloaded Column: This column has been renamed to “Unld?” and includes a “Y / N” indicator for dock workers to easily indicate if the freight has been unloaded.
  • ID Column: ID’s can now be found in the second column next to “Stop”. If specified, all trace numbers will now be included in the column. This includes PO #, REF #, and Load Tender #.
  • SKU Number: If a SKU Number is populated, it will be included in the description field.

With less unnecessary information, larger fields, and better use of space, offload manifest documents can be more useful to dock workers and help improve efficiency within their operations.

Tariffs: Expanded Zones

We’ve expanded the available geographic regions your team can use to create zones and rate in Rose Rocket. Our improved algorithm has broader search results to allow for more granular tariffs and increase the likelihood of receiving rates for an order. With updated city-matching logic, your team can search for an entire address instead of just a postal code and city.

Expansion includes:

  • Large areas that tend to be suburban or rural counties. For example, Rocket View County, Alberta.
  • Regions that are usually part of a larger county or metropolitan areas. For example, Orange County, California.
  • Neighbourhoods or boroughs of a larger city. For example, Brooklyn, New York. 


Creating a new zone:

Go to the Tariffs module, open “View Zones” and select “Create Zone”. Name the zone and add the regions of choice. Select Save to complete the zone.

Assigning a zone to tariffs:

Once a zone is created, select "View Tariffs" to assign the zone to an existing tariff or create a new tariff. Here is an example of adding a new zone to an existing tariff. Select Update to save.

Assigning tariffs to a customer profile:

When a new zone is created and assigned to a tariff, go to the Customer module and open the customer details page. Select Services and click the add button under "Customer Tariffs". Search by the Tariff Name and fill out the respective fields. Save to complete.

Now, when an order is created in the zone, you have an increased reliability of receiving rates for that lane.

Use the Type dropdown menu to specify an assessorial or miscellaneous line item. The quantity of a line item will default to one when added. Save or Save & Send to complete.

Once added, the additional line items will be reflected in the invoice total.
