Thank you for your comment.
Indeed, in most cases a simple CreditNote should suffice to cancel or correct a FreightInvoice.
However, in some cases a ‘CreditNote’ is the original document, e.g. for commission invoices, where the full shipment data is useful to identify the transport.
I am currently building ‘Invoice’ documents with the ‘Shipment’ tag in the extensions area, because not many UBL solutions are capable of handling a FreightInvoice.
The presence of the Shipment tag does allow a receiver to fairly easily convert the ‘Invoice’ to a ‘FreightInvoice’.
But it is not possible to do the same with a CreditNote that contains the Shipping tag in the extension.

CEN-BII and OpenPEPPOL are not using the FreightInvoice.
The profile 5 "Billing" also has a precise rule for invoices and credit notes:
tbr14-052 - The total amount of the document and due amount cannot be negative.
The Billi profile also uses two UBL documents:
It is true there is not a FreightCreditNote however, so question is, if a Carrier needs to send a Credit Note to a Freight Forwarder which is related to a container freigth, does he have all information required ?
The generic CreditNote of UBL should be sufficient usually because it should reference a previous Invoice where all industry details are already provided. So if the previous invoice was an UBL-FreigthInvoice-2.1 all should be fine. I would say it is important
to reference the credited invoice and maybe it is not strictly necessary to provide (repeat) all industry-specific details such as shipment info in the credit note.
it is my opinion however....

FreightInvoice is a special case of the Invoice document, mandatory including a ‘Shipment’ tag to include transportation details.
With CEN-BII and openPeppol BIS profiles moving to profile 5, their recommendation now is to send a CreditNote document for invoices with negative amounts / corrective / cancellation invoices, instead of indicating inside
the Invoice document (with the DocumentType tag) whether the Invoice is an invoice or a creditnote.
In that logic, shouldn’t there be a UBL document FreightCreditNote?
