  • Loading Meters

    Hi All,

    Did anybody implemented - calculation of rates based on loading meters and weight ? If so could you please help me out with this.

    I beleive OTM has the capability to do so as it is mentioned that - "
    multiple cost drivers (per kg, per piece count, per mile, per loading meter) " in the below document.

    Also is the calculation of the loading meters by the carriers is any of the motor standards ? or differs from carrier to carrier ?

    Awaiting for your replies , Thankyou.

    Regards,

    I noticed this thread was still unanswered.

    A loading meter is actually a volumetric unit rather even though it looks like a length. For example, 13 loading meter would equal a full truck of 80 m3, so 1 loading meter equals about 6.15 m3. If you set up a new volume UOM called "LOADING METER" with the appropriate conversion in OTM, you could use this unit for orders and rates.

      Hello
      Test rate factor SHIPMENT.EQUIPMENT.LOADING_LENGTH with 3dload engine in 6.2, it's really the LM.

        Re: Loading Meters

        Hello,

        I'm currently testing the 3d load engine so now I have the loading lenght for the shipment. But I have an issue with the rating. The rate should function as with the dim rate factor but it's this case OTM should compare the actual weight against the dimensional weight derived from the loading lenght based on the factor that 1 loading meter is 1750 kg. After comparing, OTM should choose the greater weight. Can this be done in OTM and how ?

        Any suggestion is welcome

        Regards
