Configure hold types based on container types
You can specify hold types based on container types at two levels of specification.
At a general level, hold types can be configure to apply to all Dry or all Reefer container types. A secondary option is available to further define the hold type to only apply to select container types within a general container type.
To configure this, click Admin in the Main Menu and select Hold Types in the menu panel. Then click New to create a new hold type with this specification or click Edit next to an existing hold type to add this.
Under Cargo Type select Container. Two additional fields will appear -- under Container Type, select either Dry or Reefer. Next, under Select Container Type, begin typing specific container types to which the hold will apply. Select the container types when they appear in the dropdown autocomplete menu.
Once you've added all of the applicable container types and filled out the rest of the details, click Save.
