Understanding the MTi Tab

What containers show up on the MTi tab?

There are two main conditions that need to be met for a container to appear on the MTi tab.

  • It is an import
  • The date for the MT Park delivery has been set

Dates on the MTi tab

On the MTi tab you can view by date - this will allow you to see what is scheduled by day. If a delivery that is scheduled for today is not delivered then it will roll over to the next day.

Below is a screenshot of how to navigate the MTi tab by date and see what day a container is scheduled to the MT park for.

Note: The date the container is to be delivered to the MT Yard cannot be changed on the MTi allocation.
