  • Shipments are built using the multiple equipment group

    When the shipments are created from an order release.The shipments are built on to the multiple equipments.

    Requirement:
    Equipment Group Capacities Available : 34 TONS (Maximum)

    we have an order release with Gross Weight: 50 000 KGS

    The shipments should be build for orders whose Gross Weight is less than 34 TONS.However for me the shipments are built for orders whose weights are greater than 34 tons also with multiple equipments.

    We want order release whose weights are less than 34 TONS should be planned.Orders whose weights are greater than 34 TONS should not be planned.

    Any thoughts ,how the above requirement can be configured into OTM

    Regards,

    Surender

      Change your itinerary's 'Auto consolidation type' to No auto consolidate. This will stop OTM from planning single shipment with multiple equipment. Pls note OTM planning takes Volume into consideration for calculating multiple equipment/shipments to be planned.

      If your equipment volume is greater than your order-release total volume then OTM will proceed with shipment planning.(What ever may be your order release total weight)... This is because volume also represents physical space available in equipment.

      Also remember to uncheck the bulk splittable, count splittable if you want OTM not to split your shipunits during planning...

      Below thread gives you insight on single shipment multiple equipment concept.

        The reason why OTM builds shipments for Orders over 34 ton, is that you have rates that allow that.

        You should ensure your orders are marked as not Splittable, and you should specify in your rates that the maximum weight is 34 ton.

        This way, orders of more than 34 ton will never be planned.
