Relations are used throughout the whole system. A Relation is a company where you are doing business with, e.g.:

  • sell your services to a Customer

  • sending an Outgoing Invoice to a Customer

  • setting up a quotation for a Prospect

  • purchase transport services from a Charter

  • getting an Invoice from a supplier

Customer, Supplier, Charter and others are Relation Types. This is one of the most important fields to define where a Relation can be used.

  • When a Relation is NOT a customer it's not possible to generate a Revenue or send an Outgoing Invoice for this relation

  • When a Relation is NOT a supplier it's not possible to generate a Cost or book an Incoming Invoice for this relation

  • When a Relation is NOT a Vessel Operator it's not possible to send a Vessel Booking to this relation

In the Logistics Cloud Suite there are also Locations.
Locations are the physical addresses where you are moving your containers, trucks, trailers, goods and others to.

  • Relations => Administrative flow
