Aljex Ensures FMSA Compliance When Assigning Carriers

Aljex Ensures FMSA Compliance When Assigning Carriers

Aljex made recent updates that automate Dispatch and Rate Confirmation processes. It now ensures FMSA compliance when assigning a carrier to a shipment once a user has chosen the option requiring FSMA-compliance. Once checked, the user can also designate the shipment for temperature control and add the necessary temperature values.

Dispatch

When a shipment has been set to require FSMA, it can only have a carrier assigned with the appropriate equipment.

Once checked the user can also designate the shipment for temperature control and add the necessary temperature values. When a shipment has been set to require FSMA it can only have a carrier assigned with the appropriate equipment.

Rate Confirmation

If the FSMA checkbox is selected the temperature settings appear on the Rate Confirmation

If a shipment is not designated as “FSMA” but has content entered in the temperature fields the temperature values will appear on the rate confirmation as well. The FSMA designation and temperature values also appear in the Special Notes section.

Carriers and Covering

Carriers must be designated as having an FSMA certificate on file in order to cover a shipment. The field to designate a carrier as having “FSMA Certificate on File” is located in the Carrier Compliance section of the carrier file.

Only carriers with a Y value in this field will be available when covering a shipment that has been designated as FSMA.

Trucking

Aljex clients that utilize Trucking can add the FSMA certificate date to the Driver file

If the shipment Dispatch has “FSMA” checked the system will check and confirm that the certificate date has been entered and that the date is before the shipment date. When adding a driver to FSMA-designated shipment in Trucking mode, only drivers that have a valid FSMA certificate date will appear in the search results.

Homepage

The Homepage designer provides the ability to include FSMA-related fields into the settings for a Homepage view. The FSMA options are available in the “Calculated” section. Once added through the Homepage Designer the FSMA settings will appear for the designated homepage.
