Suggestions for easier filing:
1)Allow all containers/rail cars to be filled under one submittance if all fall under one booking number/tracking number. Rather than one full submittance for each container.
2)Create a link to find tarrif codes.
3)Create a view screen similar to the printed confirmation with all the information in one place before we are required to submit.
4)If errors are made, create an easier way correct, do not require us to recreate.
5)On 'create a PN' for different commodities, do not have all commodities default onto PN, use check box to choose your commodity not cancel.
6)**** Big Problem **** Railroads will not load our cargo until we provide them with a PN number, and you are requiring a railcar before giving a number.

Overall I filled out this form to the best of my ability and I know I made several errors, but was not able to fix. Some of my submittances my have been doubled, I had no way to be sure. You may want to look at AES online filing for export to model after, still not perfect but a good model and much easier to use.
