ciePhoto automates the process of capturing, editing, and managing shipping container and trailer photos to streamline your export documentation and claims handling. It replaces your digital camera, eliminating the tedious and time consuming task of manually downloading, renaming, editing, and organizing photos while helping to avoid lost or misplaced images.
ciePhoto works by allowing a set of pictures to be taken for each shipping container or trailer and automatically uploads them directly into the cieTrade database over a Wi-Fi or cellular network. Photos are first resized and edited for international customs, including CCIC, and then attached directly to corresponding worksheets in cieTrade matched either by a load or container number. Uploaded pictures can be viewed and managed directly from the cieTrade system using the “Photos Received” inquiry or from the Documents tab on the Worksheet form. Once a complete set of photos are received for a booking, cieTrade can expedite its delivery to your customer and help avoid penalties for missed deadlines by producing a complete “documentation packet” that includes images of all the containers that were shipped.
ciePhoto is productivity tool designed exclusively for use by cieTrade software clients.
The latest version of ciePhoto makes it easy to capture the equipment tare weight of a shipping container along with cargo photos for compliance with the new SOLAS/VGM international shipping regulation. Tare weights are automatically assigned to shipping tickets in the cieTrade system eliminating double entry. (Requires cieTrade version 10.9 or higher)
