    Ive used shipment manager. It works great except the print size of the report is too small. I have to fold the paper a couple times and then increase the font on my copier. Please try to adjust the print size.

    Thanks for the comment! We’re using the current font size to try to fit all of the information on only one page. One option that you have to make the font a bit bigger is to change the ‘Page Orientation’ from ‘Portrait’ to ‘Landscape’, under your Printer Properties.
    If you consider the font still too small, you can always download the search output as a spreadsheet CVS file by selecting the ‘Download’ option. From there, you can update the font size and other features as you find more convenient.
    Hope this helps. If you have any other comments or questions, let us know!

    If our forwarders file the EEI on our behalf, is there anyway we can access this data for our EINs?

  4. Global Reach Eric says:

    The Shipment Manager only allows you to search for EEI filed by your company under that account. It doesn’t allow you to search for the data filed by a freight forwarder. The freight forwarder would need to provide you, at your request, the data they have filed on your behalf.
    If you have additional questions, please let us know.
