Common & Contract Authority

Common & Contract Authority

The purpose of this post is to notify users of the change in the behavior of blank data within the Common & Contract Authority fields when covering a shipment in Aljex. Contact servicedesk@descartes.com with any questions regarding this change.

Background

In the carrier file, a user can identify that a carrier has common and contract authority by placing a Y in these fields.

Previously, “[blank]” data in this field functioned the same way as a Y in the field.

Permission Settings

Company Setup File

Previously, setting the permissions highlighted above to Yes will prevent a carrier from covering a load if the carrier file contains an “N” in the Contract Authority field, the Common Authority field, or either field.

Moving forward, these settings will prevent a carrier from covering a load if the carrier file contains an “N” OR contains “[blank]”.
