        Advantage of Arbitrary Rate Offering

        Pushkar Dixit, Infosys

        Business Case:

        Most of the leading logistics company will provide the multi modal transport service, however in real business scenario most of the route is covered by using Sea mode transportation and very less of Rail and Road transportation. Hence it becomes logical to optimize the shipment creation activity with focus to Sea mode only even though there is movement of goods in various modes like Road, Rail

        Consider an consignment which needs to be transported from Singapore to US, this consignment may start from some location in Singapore which needs to be transported to Singapore port via Rail/Road and similarly after arriving at US port it may have to go further destination location via Rail/Road. So there is a cost and lead time incurred for Rail/Road transport which we cannot accommodate in a single Rate Record. As primary focus for transport company is to transport goods through Sea mode, Hence it becomes logical to optimize the shipment creation activity with focus to Sea mode only even though there is movement of goods in various modes like Road, Rail.

        Furthermore it is also important to know the transit time and cost incurred in movement from various modes other than Sea mode (Rail/Road).

        Using normal set up criteria we may setup different Rate Record for Rail, Road in a way we defined it for Sea mode, but this configuration will optimize the consignment for all mode of transport which is not acceptable to client, as their main business is through Sea mode only. But at the same time they want to consider the lead time in transport of goods via other modes while creating shipment in a similar way as they are considering the lead time and cost incurred in Sea mode. Hence OTM Functionality “Arbitrary Leg” will be apt for this scenario. “Arbitrary Leg” will be achieved in OTM by configuration setup which will define itinerary, Rate record/Rate offering, Rate service id for voyage, Rate offering-Special service, Rate service –Arbitrary Leg Service.

        “Hence with help of this Arbitrary Leg concept Transportation companies will managed to calculate the charges and transit time required for all modes of transport and at the same time they are able to manage to optimize the shipment creation process only for “Sea Mode.”

          Key Challenges and Lessons Learned from Implementing OTM 6.4.1 within the Oracle Stack for a Leading Steel Manufacturer

          Donnie Spencer, Nucor

          Learn how a leading steel manufacturer adapted key functionalities within Oracle Transportation Management and Oracle EBS to streamline and enhance their supply chain processes. The rail intensive steel industry presents many obstacles when it comes to leveraging standard functionalities offered from the Oracle stack. This session outlines the successes and lessons learned from the key challenges addressed in a large scale OTM and EBS implementation: EBS to OTM Rate Inquiry, Rule-11 multi-leg moves, RailInc Data, Transcentric Integration. Adapting these functionalities in OTM and EBS can be advantageous during mode selection, shipment planning, and visibility of Rail moves.

            Empowering End Users to Implement Dock Schedules

            Samir Pathan, WestRock

            The lack of a formalized and centralized appointment management process can leave you deficient in several areas including being able to effectively manage detention charges, change management, workforce management, and congestion at the gate. Fortunately, OTM offers an appointment management solution as part of the core functionality in OTM v2.5.3 and on. In this presentation we will briefly describe the end to end process for implementing dock scheduling. We’ll be covering scoping, design, configuration, implementation and support, as well as several common bugs in the Dock Manager and their workarounds.

            Benefits to Dock Scheduling
            • Reduced Labor
            • Standardized Appointment process
            • Reduction in detention charges
            • Decrease the risks of overbooking
            • Provides centralized and shared visibility

              Effective Auto Pay Solutions in OTM

              Chris Knowlton, Oracle Consulting Services

              The usage of an auto pay settlement solution has always been an intriguing concept to many OTM customers, but the execution of the solution has been the primary challenge. We at OCS have come up with a hybrid solution along with a key customer that utilizes the advantages of auto pay, but with a key element of carrier approval through a portal to minimize re-work and adjustments once transactions have been sent to back end payment systems.

              First, we will discuss some of the background of what situations are best fits for auto pay. Number of transactions, modes, percentage of transactions with unknown accessorials, and planning complexity all are key considerations. In addition, sourcing and bid strategies can potentially be altered to better accommodate an auto pay solution.

              Next, we will get into the details of the solution and what made it work well for our customer. Automating what had become a very manually intensive settlement process was a key initiative for the customer. Doing so without creating a major disruption to the carrier base was just as important though.

              Finally, we will discuss challenges, benefits, and lessons learned from the post go-live experience. What areas did we have the least amount of challenges with? What were the pain points? What were we really glad we did once the project go-live was all said and done?

                Implementing 3D Load Configuration

                Haley Flanery, MavenWire

                In the world of transportation, when the material is bulk,liquid or cement etc., when there is no preference of ordering or placement of product into equipment, there is little issue loading products into equipment. When the product has standard dimensions and can be placed on pallets/boxes, it is more complicated deciding which one should go into the container first. However, the real trouble is when there are many different types of ship units that cannot be placed on a pallet for loading, but instead have to be loaded individually with their own specific consideration, such as loaded lengthwise or widthwise, stackable or not stackable, and even as specific as certain ship units cannot be placed next to one another. These combinations bring in unique problem statements for TMS container optimization engine, which is designed to show the loading order of product into equipment. This also brings challenges to reduce the empty spaces, chances of damaging the product and customer specific loading requirements. This paper will not only go through the standard 3D Load Config, but will also go through the specific problem set in the application where numerous options are given, resulting in loading patterns not acceptable by the loading standards. This paper will discuss 3D Load Configuration and the placement of ship units in Equipment.
