Load Status

Each load in Traqa has a status

  • OPEN (a scheduled load yet to take place)

  • COMPLETED (a load that has taken place)

  • CLOSED (a load that never took place)

In the normal flow loads should transition from OPEN to COMPLETED, there is no facility to delete a load, if it has not yet taken place it will move to CLOSED after an expiry period past the scheduled loading date.

Updates to load plans can be made by re-sending using the POST endpoint and re-using the original loading reference. This will not be applied unless the load is OPEN.
