"Cargo Arrival Notice" AKA C.A.N. :
An automated report generated for Caribtrans customers sent via e-mail. Advises customer

shipment as they arrive or once per day. Customer decides when report is generated.
"Cargo On Hand" AKA C.O.H. :
Also automated, this report shows Caribtrans customers the cargo
accumulated in our terminal for them. Among
other things, this report includes the shipper invoice number as well as the type of
packing the cargo was received in. This report is generated and sent to our customers
the afternoon before our LCL cargo cut-off.
FAQ, frequently asked questions:
1. What is the difference between the C.A.N. and the
C.O.H. ? The C.A.N. will show you what cargo is being received for you that
day. The C.O.H. will show you what cargo has accumulated in our terminal.
2. How often can I receive these reports?
The C.A.N. can be received as shipments come in or once a day in a summarized report.
The C.O.H. can be received maximum of once per day but you can limit that to once per
week or every other day, the choice is yours. The default is set to 5 P.M. the day
before of our LCL cargo cut-off.

That is up to you!
They are designed to help you keep track of your incoming orders. You can do nothing and
