How to use tabs in an ActiveAdmin edit form rendered from an ERB partial

I had to change an ActiveAdmin edit form from that I've been using to an ERB partial due to several technical reasons.

The form is quite massive and I had to split it into tabs already. When attempting to add tabs by using

<% tabs do %>
in the ERB partial, the following error appears in the
rails server

Completed 500 Internal Server Error in 209ms

ActionView::Template::Error (undefined method `tabs' for #<#<Class:0x007fb1827cdbf8>:0x007fb181b16d60>):
1: <%= semantic_form_for [:admin, @consignment], builder: ActiveAdmin::FormBuilder, html: { enctype: 'multipart/form-data' } do |f| %>
2: <% f.semantic_errors *f.object.errors.keys %>
4: <% tabs do %>
6: <% tab 'Foo' do %>
app/views/admin/consignments/_form.erb:4:in `block in _app_views_admin_consignments__form_erb__783297827544755550_70200180247600'
app/views/admin/consignments/_form.erb:1:in `_app_views_admin_consignments__form_erb__783297827544755550_70200180247600'

I understand that I might have to include a helper somewhere to have the tabs rendered, but I'm not sure about which one to use and where to include it.

I ended up entering the HTML manually, in the following way:

  <div class="tabs">
    <ul class="nav nav-tabs" role="tablist">
      <li><a href="#consignment-details">Consignment Details</a></li>
      <li><a href="#consignment-details">Trucks</a></li>

    <div class="tab-content">

      <div id="consignment-details">

      <div id="containers">
