    Completing the Closeout Report

    The Closeout Report changes the status on every AWB from L (loaded) to F (flown). You must have the driver or pilot sign the printed report. If you do not complete this step, the airbills stay open and you cannot receive revenue credit for the shipment.

    1. From the ACMS menu, select AW08.
    2. Enter the flight number and date.
    3. Answer "Okay To Change Flight Status To FLOWN?" with a Y.
    4. Answer "Are you returning EMPTY pallets?" with a Y (for yes) or N (for No).

      If you answer Y, a list of pallets opens. Press F3 next to each pallet number you are returning on this flight. When you have marked all the empty pallets on the truck, press F4 and answer Y to update.

    5. On the printer options screen, enter 3 for alternate then select a report printer.
    6. Have one of the pilots sign the Closeout Report (Figure 4).
