The following describes the process of binding cargo insurance through FreightWise to a client's BOL.
Adding insurance to the BOL is very easy.
The first step is to add to set the insured value of the BOL / shipment. Details on the insured value can be found here.
In our example we are setting the insured value will be $58,000.
Once insured value has been entered the "Request Quote" button will activate (dark blue) and allow the user to request a quote.
Quoting insurance can take a few seconds...
The insurance quote panel will indicate the true cost amount and confirm the insured value. In this example the true cost that will be billed to FreightWise's client is $377.00.
Billing of insurance is done via the Client Invoice process.
If the user is satisfied with the quote you can then click on the "Book It" button to request an Insurance Certificate and bind it to the BOL.
A confirmation window will appear just double checking that FreightWise should go ahead with booking the insurance.
Insurance booking can take a few seconds - please wait while FreightWise creates the insurance certificate and binds it to the BOL. In addition a PDF will be generated for the clients records and placed in the "Files" section of the BOL.
Once completed a green outline will show indicating that all of the insurance steps have been completed and the BOL is now bound by an insurance certificate in the amount of $58,000.
