Cargo Ready Date (CRD)

Cargo Ready Date (CRD) is the date on which a shipment is ready to be loaded and transported from its origin. The CRD is an important milestone in the transportation process, as it determines the schedule for loading the shipment and preparing it for transportation. It is often influenced by factors such as the availability of goods, the completion of any necessary inspections or certifications, and the readiness of the shipping carrier.
