Shipper is the party that we picked up the freight from. There are 2 types of shippers the physical shipper and the listed shipper. The physical shipper is the actual location the freight was at when we picked it up. The listed shipper is the party that the shipment was shipped for. Listed shippers are commonly used when a warehouse company is the physical shipper.
The customer Id is the 6 digit reference number for that account in our database. If the Customer ID is four nines followed by 3digits this is what is called a Miscellaneous customer, this party does not have an account established with Oak Harbor.
