More than just labels and waybills

Unlike simpler TMS that only create shipping labels and waybills, Fraktjakt also helps with shipping manifests, packing slips and even fills in your customs documents for Proforma Invoices and Commercial Invoices automatically.

Shipping labels

Print the shipping labels using a label printers or on plain white A4 paper and then tape them to the top of the package. Also remove any old shipping labels from the packages.

Print the shipping labels using a label printers or on plain white A4 paper and then tape them to the top of the package. Make sure the label is completely visible on one side and does not cover any seams. Also remove any old shipping labels from the packages.

Waybills

A waybill is a document that contains details and instructions on the transport of a shipment. Unlike a shipping label, the waybill is placed in a plastic pocket. It should not be confused with a manifest which is a receipt that the carrier has received the goods.

Print the waybills on a plain white A4 paper, which should be put in a transparent pouch attached to the package.

Shipping manifests

A manifest is a summary of all goods included in a shipment. It serves as a receipt that the carrier has received the goods.

Fraktjakt automatically creates manifests in duplicate. A copy signed by the carrier to confirm collection of the goods and a copy that the carrier can keep.

You can disable the creation of manifests in your print settings if you create your own manifests, but avoid sending goods without using manifests.

These documents are important for you to be able to prove the shipment if the goods should disappear. Be sure to get the driver's signature on the manifest. It is your receipt that the carrier has received your shipping and is required for you to be able to reclaim the shipping.

Packing slips

A packing slip is a document for the recipient that specifies what the goods contain. When the recipient opens the goods, they can make a reconciliation with the packing slip.

Fraktjakt can automatically create delivery notes for your shipments. If you do not wish to use Fraktjakt's delivery notes, you can deactivate these documents under your print settings.

Commercial Invoices

A commercial invoice is used to describe goods that are exported for sale and is an important part of the clearance process where customs authorities classify goods so that customs duties and taxes can be assessed correctly.

All shipments to countries outside the European Union (EU) require customs clearance. No customs clearance is required for goods shipped within the EU, with the exception of Cyprus, Greece and Malta, as well as areas outside the EU excise tax areas such as Åland and the Canary Islands.

Correct and complete information on a commercial invoice is very important for fast customs clearance. Most shipping companies require a commercial invoice with three copies, all individually signed. They also recommend that you add an extra copy to the package.

Fraktjakt automatically creates a basic commercial invoice for your shipping with the most common information pre-filled. However, it is still your responsibility to check that the information is correct and if any information is missing. If you wish to create your own customs documents, you can deactivate Fraktjakt's documents under your print settings. Be aware that some countries sometimes do not approve handwritten commercial invoices. If the document is not correct, shipping may be stopped by the receiving customs. Fraktjakt will then invoice for the additional costs that may arise.

The signature does not have to be original and in Fraktjakt you can upload your signature so that it is filled in automatically.

Proforma Invoices

A proforma invoice is used instead of a commercial invoice if the importer has not bought the product. That is, if the product is not for sale, for example for gifts, samples, returns and repairs. The proforma invoice is an important part of the clearance process where customs authorities classify goods so that customs duties and taxes can be assessed correctly.
