Shipment Workflow

The value of the Status column in the Shipments grid reflects the state of the shipment as it moves through the workflow. If the Status column isn’t currently visible in the Shipments grid, you can change the grid layout to include the column. Then, use the grid controls to filter the shipments by status.
