    As I know, for LCL export process, a freight order can be created from:

    • pick-up stage(from shipper to CFS/Gateway) of a forwarding order, which we call pick-up FRO,

    this is very simple;

    • drayage stage(CFS/Gateway to port/airport) of a freight booking, this explains the scenario that cargo needs to be shipped from CFS to port, the distence can be long or short and usually by truck.

    Notice that this drayage stage is not displayed in FWO(not in charge of its sales org.), thus must be created from FRB. This is called drayage FRO.

    For import scenario vise versa.

    Hope it helps.

    Yes I think it is needed to create separate document type for drayage.

    Best regards
