Octopi allows holds to be placed on containers.

A terminal operator can created has many hold types as possible to automatically or manually create holds on containers.

Holds can be placed on containers. When a container has a hold, it cannot be delivered to the customer (via a gate movement or a container stripping) or loaded on a vessel for export.
