Manifest Vehicle Overview
The SapphireOne Manifest Vehicle function in the Inventory Manager menu is used to set up the different modes of transport to be assigned to a Manifest. The mode of transport is a critical component of creating a Manifest, and the Manifest Vehicle Inquiry screen is used to set up the vehicle within SapphireOne. The vehicle can includes any modes of transport, such as ships, aeroplanes, trucks, vans, private motor vehicles, utilities, train and carriages on a train.
