What is a transport order?
Transfer orders are created for logistical movements inside and outside the warehouse. This is an instruction from the customer to move a certain good from one place to another at a specified time. A transport order results in the conclusion of a contract between the carrier and the client.
A transfer order can contain several items, each of which contains its own specific quantity of goods, commodities or raw materials. Depending on where the goods come from and where they are delivered, a further distinction is made between different order types:
- TPE (storage)
- TPV (packing)
- TPU (rearrangement)
- TPA (outsourcing)
What information must a transport order contain?
In order for a transport order to be carried out properly, it must contain some important information. These include:
- Sender and collection address
- Recipient and receiving address
- Gross weight of the shipment and individual packaging units
- Dimensions of the packaging units
- If applicable Collection and delivery times
In addition, it must be noted on a transport order if the goods to be transported are dangerous goods.
