Use Ship It!'s reports to gain insight into what's going on on your layout. The Industry Status Report lists each industry in turn and contains information about each car located there. Because Ship It!
tracks all information through time, it can tell you whether a car is loading or unloading, what product is involved, how many hours until the loading/unloading is completed, or whether the car is an available load or
empty. Also given is the car arrival
time (what session it arrived in and the clock time). If the car is being routed across divisions, the next destination and final destination is also given. Empty Request and
Load Request Reports detail exactly what each consignee is calling for in terms of AAR Type, product, and amount. This information allows you to optimize your operations and eliminate bottlenecks.
