  • Multistop Shipment With P/d At Same Location

    scenario:
    Order release
    1. A->B
    2. B->A

    want to create 1 multistop shipment i.e A->B->B->A ( like a return trip) - thus both P/D activity happening at same location i.e. B

    Rate record: region to region(A and B)
    Itineray: multistop-region to region(A and B)

    Bulk planning is resulting in 2 independent shipments
    Can you please suggest some approach to build above desired shipment using planning

    Try defining the location role of B as Shipfrom/Shipto and Consol as well.

      Thanks for your response

      Even after defining Location B as both ship from/to and consol role type; still system is not planning single multi-stop (return trip) shipment.

        Any time constraints in the OR's like Pickup & Delivery dates? Also does it allow you to force merge the two shipments?

          HI ,

          As per OTM this is Continous tour .

          Even then it creates two shipments but it use the same truck .

          B-A shipment starts only after a-b shuipment gets delivered.

          U have do a total diffrent setupfor this .

            In case of continuous move(CM), there will be two different shipments ( i.e two different equipments ) linked together - Then how can we assume that they are being carried in same truck/trailer?

            When we tender these shipments to carriers, there will be two different tenders - How will carriers come to know whether they need to send 1 or 2 equipments to carry these two shipments?

              Hi Arun,

              Even after mentioning matching pickup/delivery dates in Order releases ( so that round trip is feasible), system is not making single multistop shipment.

              System is allowing forced merge of these two shipments into 1, but while doing that no proper P/D sequence is maintained i.e. system is creating PPDD rather than PDPD seq. Also pickup/delivery times are not correct on shipment formed after merging.

                  Hi ,

                  To my knowledge there is no way u can achevive (A->B->B->A ( like a return trip)it in OTM .

                  I mean u cant creat single shipment for the above requirment .

                  But continous move works if (A->B->B->A ) But it creates two shipments but uses the same truck or equipment .

                    Kishore,

                    You can acheive the scenario with single shipment by using static/dynamic trip and define the stop activities in a ground schedule. And iam able to do that. But i just wanted to know if that is possible with a multistop itinerary as orginally posted by Nipunlakhotia.

                      See the attached as a possible solution.

                      FYI...I haven't been able to automate this through Bulk Planning.

                        Joe,

                        Your solution works until you try to add another order release to the shipment. OTM redrives the shipment and resequences the stops on you.

                        Checking fixed pickup and departure times on the locations, or trying some other solutions does not change the behavior.

                          Hi

                          I feel multistop can't be used for scenarios like A-B-B-A and also for AB and BC.

                          Static Trips, though can be used to meet your requirement

                            Starting from CU4, you can enable parameter
                            MULTISTOP ALLOW PICKUP AND DROPOFF AT SAME STOP
                            within Logic Configuration - Multistop

                            And if you have more points required P/D, you can increase number in
                            Max Num of Shipment Segments of Rate Offering
                            and
                            MULTISTOP MAXIMUM SEGMENTS PER SHIPMENT in Logic Configuration - Multistop
