    to be

    Dear teacher,

    I am confused with the use of "to be " in a sentense.

    for example as a logistic coordiator I usually use "to be" to notify the consignee about his shipment as following:

    "the containers are planned to be shipped next week"

    my confusion is whether to write "to be ship" or as a/m.

    I really don't know how to use "to be" in a sentense.

    please simplify it to me.

    "the containers are planned to be shipped next week"
    I think the problem here is 'planned'. It would sound fine if you had 'are scheduled to be shipped'.
