Shipping

Crossfire works with a number of shipping lines that use CargoWise. The two message types that are exchanged are CODECO and COPARN messages.

  • CODECO - Have any container movements trigger an event, to pass through Crossfire and be sent to local or foreign customs, transport partners & ports. These could be Gate In / Gate Out messages, or 
  • COPARN - Receive COPARN messages to make available, accept, call down containers, or announce the impending arrival of a container. 

Freight Forwarding

Crossfire works with a range of global importers and exporters that are involved in Freight forwarding. The most common messages Crossfire work with are Orders and Shipping Notifications.

  • Orders - Orders can be sent by your trading partner(s), pass-through Crossfire and then be sent or picked up by your instance of CargoWise. 
  • Order Confirmations - Once you've checked the order and confirm this in CargoWise, Crossfire can seamlessly send this data to your partner. 
  • Shipping Notifications (ASN's) - Once there is an event that leads to a shipping notification being required by a trading partner, Crossfire can trigger an ASN to your trading partner(s).

Custom logic and business rules - Every business and trading partners have different business processes.

This could be for road transport, shipping, etc. If you deal with a range of global trading partners that use different currencies, Crossfire can create custom logic to ensure you are giving your customers the most up to date rate. 

PDF Conversion - Crossfire can convert PDF's that are received from trading partners to Cargowise format, and validate these through Crossfire before sending these to CargoWise.

Other - Crossfire will work with you to then create the most appropriate logic that will benefit your supply chain.
