  • Trailer swap supported in OTM?

    Hi,

    Following scenario: between to DC's two trucks drive at night to bring loads to the other DC. To ensure the drivers will return to their home depot, the two drivers meet half-way at a parking, swap their semi-trailer, and drive home again.

    In other words:
    - Driver Jack leaves Chicago DC at 8 PM with his truck with semi-trailer with goods for destination Minneapolis DC.
    - At the same time driver Thelma leaves Minneapolis DC with her truck with semi-trailer with goods for destination Chicago DC
    - At 12 AM, Jack and Thelma arrive at a parking near Mauston WI, have a cup of coffee, and swap their trailers
    - At 12.30 AM Jack now returns back to Chicago in his own truck with Thelma's semi-trailer that came from Minneapolis
    - At the same time Thelma returns back to Minneapolis in her own truck with Jack's semi-trailer that came from Chicago
    - Both arrive at their destination at 6.30 AM
    - Jack is now back in Chicago with his own truck and the semi-trailer with goods from Minneapolis
    - Thelma is now back in Minneapolis with her own truck and the semi-trailer with goods from Chicago

    Does OTM support this scenario?

    Thanks,

    Lourens

    Intent: Trailer(Including goods) swap with an another Tracker/Driver.
    Approach: Typically Tractor is attached to the Driver(Normally they will not switch Tractor and both will be attached to Shipment(Trailer).
    You can try sending Shipment Ship Unit(SSU)/Equipment to an existing shipment to make swap happen.
    Thanks,
