Calculating expected dates

There are multiple factors that affect expected shipment and delivery dates.

Calculations of expected shipment and delivery dates for a given inquiry involve various factors, such as:

  • Minimum notification time required by the node
  • Notification schedule
  • Level of Service
  • Carrier pickup schedule
  • Carrier hold time
  • Shipping calendar of the node
  • Receiving calendar of the node
  • Receipt processing time
  • Node capacity
  • Transit time required for shipment
  • Predefined transfer schedules between ship-from and ship-to locations
  • Sequencing constraints defined between product and service lines
  • Product search window - the period of time after the requested date in which an order line can be scheduled
