Default Can the preparation times on containers be reduced?

Q. Can the preparation times on containers be reduced?

A. Yes. Starting with ships dispatched after 17th May 2017 9pm EST the more ships you have dispatched over the past 7 days the faster your containers can be prepared.

This is a list of all the possible preparation times for the ships and containers.
Ships dispatched in the last 7 days / Container prep time

When you start preparing a container, a second help icon appears on the container to the right of the container time, indicated with the red arrow in the picture below. The second help icon only shows during the preparation of that container. You can click on it and see the explanation for the preparation time for that container.

In the pop up that appears it will tell you the container preparation time based on how many ships you have dispatched in the last 7 days and how many ships you have dispatched in that time.

If you click on "Sure, let me see them" it will show you your dispatch dates in the last 7 days.

Click the “OK, thanks” to close the box.

NOTE: Ships only stay on the dispatch list for exactly 7 days then they drop off the list.

If the preparation time changed whilst you were preparing containers, this is because the time is calculated according to how many ships you had previously dispatched in the last 7 days. For example if you had dispatched 6 ships in the last 7 days and were preparing your Brown ship, the prep time would be 5.1 minutes, but if while you were preparing them one of those ships dropped from the list for being over 7 days old you would then change to a prep time of 5 dispatched ships, 10.2 minutes.
