E Invoicing of Export Sales

Hello I'm a seafood exporter, I recently found myself in a situation where I needed to submit a commercial invoice on a Friday in order to file a shipping bill with customs. The purpose was to secure a container slot on a Monday NVOCC steamer, which would transport the container to the mother port. Consequently, the container would only leave my factory premises on Monday morning. In this case, I have a couple of questions: After entering the commercial invoice on Friday, do I also need to generate the e-invoice on the same day or can i generate on monday ? Is there a specific time window for generating the e-way bill once the e-invoice has been filed?

Pls help. Thank you.
