If you try to send the PDF without all required information an error message will appear.
Button: Send Form
To submit the PDF Shipping Instruction to Hapag-Lloyd simply click on “Send Form” on the first page.
A dialog box will ask you to choose from 2 possibilities for sending the form, via e-mail or online.
Dialog box - Button: Submit Online
It will submit your form online to Hapag-Lloyd. If your websession with the Hapag-Lloyd website has been expired or has not been established (because you are sending a form directly out of your local file system) you will be requested to enter your credentials for the Hapag-Lloyd website to authenticate. Submitting the form online is the preferred option because you can redownload and review your submitted forms later again.
Dialog box - Button: Send Email
Use this button to submit your form via email, e.g. if you do not want to submit it online or if you temporarily do not have web access. A new email in your standard email client will be created. The receiving address at Hapag-Lloyd is already filled. You can send the email as it is.
Dialog box - Button: Continue
After submitting your PDF Shipping Instruction you may continue to work with the form, e.g. to save or send another partload B/L, by pressing this button at the next dialog box.
Dialog box - Button: OK
