  • Need to create multi order for multi drop and multi pickup

    Dear all,
    I'm a new be in OTM. I have business scenario as below:
    Case 1:
    Customer A, they have 3 factories
    We need to pickup from 3 factories (3 locations) and ship to 2 factories (2 drops)
    In this case, can we create only one order or not?

    Case 2:
    Customer B, have 2 factories
    we need pickup goods at port and ship to factory 1, drop a part of goods and continue go to factory 2 and drop the remaining goods then go back to port with empty container.
    In this case, can we create only one order or not? How to create Itinerary.


    Thanks and regards,

    Thanh Nguyen

    Hi,

    For Case 1, you will need multiple order releases which represent the difference source and destination locations of the goods. An order release can only have one source location and one destination location. The itinerary can be country to country, region to region, zone to zone etc, and the multi stop logic within OTM will figure out how best to combine the multiple pickups and the multiple deliveries.

    For case 2, OTM can create a multi stop pickup from a port location and then deliver that to two factories. Same principle as above. The tricky part will be getting OTM to deliver an empty container back to the port and the scheduling of that. There is not really a natural way of doing that in OTM.

    Good luck, let me know how you get on.
