# Use end of shift as shipping time

This parameter is used to calculate the time component of the shipping date.

If product is expected to ship on a particular day, the time can be chosen as the "end of next shift" time for that day by setting this parameter to "Y". If this parameter is set to "N", the time component is set as "next working" time.

The following examples illustrate the usage of these settings for calculating the correct scheduling date.

## End of shift shipping time, example 1

• The Minimum Notification Time = 2 hours
• Product availability is "on-hand"
• The "Request to Ship Order" is "as soon as possible".
