Calculating expected ship date for forwarding
The Expected Ship Date is calculated based on the forwarding node and the shipping node.
As explained in the previous example (Calculating expected ship date for product procurement) the date calculation remains the same as for product procurement with changes only in the calculation of the Expected Receipt Date. In this case, the Boston warehouse is considered as the forwarding node and the receipt processing time for forwarding is 0.5 hrs. Therefore, the Expected Receipt (complete) Date at the Boston warehouse for forwarding is 10/30/03 at 5:30 am (10/30/03 5:00 am + 0.5 hours receipt processing time for forwarding).
