  • Shipment Accessorial from different service provider

    I'm trying to find out if OTM can support having an accessorial cost associated with a shipment but also associated with a different service provider.

    Example: A buy shipment is shipped via a carrier and there may be a load/unload or cleaning fee associated with that shipment but handled by a different service provider - whoever performed that task at that location (not the carrier). In this case there would 2 different invoices from 2 different service providers but both associated to one shipment.

    Is there a way to ass an accessorial cost to a shipment but associate it with a different service provider? How would you handle that on the Freight Settlement side so that it matched up properly and split out the cost lines?

    Could a Non-Freight Related Charge be used for this and still tie it to the shipment?

    Have a look at creating a second "Handling" shipment, with a Source and Destination the same.

    This should allow a different Service Provider, which will allow you to match invoices to both Shipments...

    I am guessing that both Service Providers are referencing the same Shipment_ID?? is this correct?

      Hi mramirez,

      You could use secondary charges shipments for that purpose. Those are designed to cater for costs/activities performed by different service providers. Secondary charge shipments are linked to the main shipment.
      By setting up secondary charge rules you can have OTM to automatically generate the secondary charge shipments.
      Starting point: 'Transporation Planning and Execution --> Shipment Group Management --> Secondary Charge Rule'.

      Hope this helps.
