How to start a new ACE shipment.

The Start New ACE Shipment Page is where the user begins a new shipment. It allows the user to enter the main information for the shipment and save it once finished. The Start New ACE Shipment Page is normally accessed from the ACE Manifest Details Page by clicking the Create New Shipment Button, or by using the 'Save and Start New ACE Shipment' link on the Start New ACE Manifest Page. In both of those cases the new shipment will be added to the manifest be default. It is also possible to access the page under the ACE eManifests menu by selecting 'Start New ACE Shipment', although this will not automatically attach the shipment to a manifest.

This must be followed by at least 4 characters (numbers or letters) which can be entered in the text field.
