  • Packing Material Volume

    Hi All,

    My client has this unique requirement of keeping 200 CUFT aside for every stop since these guys putup plywood partitions between the material of two different drop off stops on a truck. So if the shipment has 4 dropoff stops, the equipment volume limit should be reduced by 800 CUFT. In effect, OTM should only use 2600 CUFT out of 3400 CUFT of a 53 ft trailer.

    Does anybody know how to configure this?

    Regards,
    -Salil

    Hi Salil,

    Try using Equipment Capacity Override functionality to address your requirement.

      Nipun,

      This we already tried. The problem with this is that we may end up with some unutilized cubage at the end. Here is how. Carriers allow max 7 stops on a shipemnt. 1 is pickup and all other drops. The 200 cuft should be put aside for every drop off stop on the shipment. So if there are 2 drop off stops, there should be 400 cuft for packing material. But we can put entire 1200 cuft (max possible based on drop of stops allowed) aside in this case. The provision for packing material volume has to be dynamic based on number of stops.

        As per my understanding, dynamic equipment capacity allocation based on number of stops is not possible in OTM5.5.

        Please check with oracle support for more details about OTM6.0
