  • Demurrage Issue in OTM

    Hello

    Working on Demurrage Management, were we want to add Demurrage Costs to Shipment Cost Line

    So we have shipment with Base Cost = 100 USD, Accessorial = 25 USD

    After entering the Demurrage related events , when we run Calculate Charges Action, OTM insert the Demurrage costs on the Shipment as extra Cost Line

    So now we have Base Cost= 100 USD, Accessorial = 25 USD, Demurrage = 50 USD

    Now issue is , we the event dates are changed and the Cost are getting calculated again, instead of updated just the Demurrage related Cost on the Shipment, OTM updates all the Costs

    So it basically duplicates all the Costs

    Has anyone observed this

    Version 6.3.1

    Thanks

    Hi

    What action are you running against the shipment when you do this? Recalc shipment, or assign rates?

    It seems also that you may be fixing the Shipment Cost records.

    The expected behaviour you are looking for is to only recaculate the demurrage cost, correct?

      Hi James

      Yes, it should just recalculate the Demurrage Cost

      I am running the Calculate Charges Action from Demurrage transaction

      Thanks

        So you are running that from the action menu correct? Can you confirm if any of the shipment cost records are fixed? have you generated any invoices for the shipment in question also?

        Thanks,

        James

          Yes, just select the Demurrage Transaction, Click on Actions>Calculate Charges

          No Costs are fixed and there are no Invoices associated as well

            Hi Sasha,

            Thanks for the reply. so what you are seeing before calculating the charges is:
            Base Cost= 100 USD
            Accessorial = 25 USD
            Demurrage = 50 USD (new)
            total 175 USD

            The after running the calculate charges:
            Base Cost= 100 USD
            Accessorial = 25 USD
            Demurrage = 50 USD
            Base Cost= 100 USD (new)
            Accessorial = 25 USD (new)
            Demurrage = 100 USD (new)
            Todal 400 USD

            Is that correct?

              Hi James

              After i enter the Pickup Event and Run the Calculate Charges Action OTM performs below
              It basically Inserts Demurrage Cost onto existing Shipment Costs

              Base Cost= 100 USD
              Accessorial = 25 USD
              Demurrage = 50 USD (new)
              Cost: 175 USD

              Now when i add the Return Container Event, and run the Calculate Charges actions, OTM recalculates the Demurrage Cost but duplicates Other costs

              Base Cost= 100 USD
              Accessorial = 25 USD
              Base Cost= 100 USD (new)
              Accessorial = 25 USD (new)
              Demurrage = 100 USD (new)
              Cost: 350 USD

              Ideallty it should have been below
              Base Cost= 100 USD (new)
              Accessorial = 25 USD (new)
              Demurrage = 100 USD (new)
              Cost: 225 USD

              Thanks

                Hi Shashank,

                Can you try the following:

                Against run the first test... then, against the shipment, select Fixed cost. Then add the Return Container Event, and recalculate.

                Let me know the results.

                Using another example, do the same, however, instead of fixing the shipment, fix the specific shipment costs you want to fix.

                Another question I have, are all these costs setup on the same rate geo?

                Thanks,

                James

                  Hi James

                  Demurrage Costs are on Rate Offering, so it gets added as Accessorial
                  While Base Cost on Rate Record
                  I will Test and let you know

                  Thanks
