Inventory Shipping - Commercial Invoice (Basic)

The  Commercial Invoice (Basic) can be found under the Documents tab of an Inventory Shipping worksheet. 

The document displays the Booking number, POL, POD, Carrier, Vessel name, Voyage number, as well as Payment Terms. The Our Order No field shows the Sales Order number created in cieTrade and Your Order No shows the Reference number that was entered within that Sales Order. This document can be both printed and emailed directly from

NOTE: the Invoice No can be either manually entered or generated and validated by cieTrade. 

Letter of Credit & Export Shipping Information
The Commercial Invoice (Basic) is one of those documents that also pulls information from the Letter of Credit (LC) for specific fields. If there isn't an LC or certain information is not available on the LC, then it will reference the Export Shipping Information (ESI) section on the Sales Order. If that is also blank then it will pull the information directly from the Worksheet (WKS). The diagram below demonstrates the hierarchy of which form and field, on that form, that the information will get pulled from first.
