User Guide: eaSI online: Templates

List your Templates

The Electronic-Advanced Shipping Instruction Templates service povides you with a list of templates which you or a member of your organization have created and saved in the online mode.

A Shipping Instructions template is particularly useful if you often have frequent shipments with repetitive data. Accordingly you can save
a specific template to use it again for subsequent B/L instructions.

When opening the eaSI Template site for the first time, templates created by you will be listed automatically.

If no templates have been created so far, a respective information will be given.

Create a High Quality Template

You have also the opportunity to create High Quality Templates from an existing Bill of Lading.
