There are two company types in IAS Dispatch: Originators and Receivers.
Originators are usually ocean carriers, BCOs, or freight forwarders. They create and issue work orders for cargo that needs to be moved.
Receivers are motor carriers and barge operators. They accept work orders and issue invoices for completed moves.
It is important that you know your company type, because they are associated with different capabilities in the IAS Dispatch software.
