  • Information needed for planning two order releases into a single shiopment

    I am working on a scenario, in which i have an order release (wt = 1000 lbs) from "A to B".

    A shipment is planned for the same and it is to start at the time, say 04.00 GMT.

    Now, I have another order release with the same source, destination and same start time 04.00 GMT.

    ORDER SOURCE DESTINATION START TIME SHIPMENT LOAD(LBS) EQUIPMENT CAPACITY
    1 A B 04.00 GMT 1 4000 40000 10%
    2 A B 04.00 GMT 2 4000 40000 10%


    The table above will provide better understanding of the scenario...
    If i plan for a shipment, OTM plans a new shipment2 for order release2.
    Equipment utilization is less in both the shipments.

    Although it is possible to manually assign order release 2 to the existing shipment1 My query is,

    Is there a way to make OTM to check for any shipments with same source, destinations,start time, capacity etc.., and attach the current order release with the existing shipment

    Awaiting a response.

    Thanks and Regards
    Pradeep

    Hi Pradeep,

    You could perform the Action "Move Order to Existing Shipment" and select "Optimize", but that will look for the cheapest shipment to insert the Order Release. This action will delete the original shipment and can only consider shipments that have not been tendered yet. Furthermore, a big concern might be the performance impact, specially when there is a large volume of orders and shipments.

    Another approach would be to manually delete all the shipments that have not been tendered so their respective order releases are available to be planned with the new order releases.

    Hope this helps,

    Alejandro B.
