Configuring cross application logistics rules
Any transaction between the buyer and the seller is expected to follow a sequence like creating a shipment, load, and transit updates.
Most often this sequence is not followed and the buyer receives the information in a more random sequence. Often, without having an existing shipment, a shipment cannot be added to a load. But, by enabling this logistics rule, some unique attributes of the shipment can be added to a load even without an existing shipment, such as:
- ShipmentNo, ShipNode, and SellerOrganizationCode
- BOLNo and ShipNode
- PRONo and ShipNode
The getLoadDetails API returns these shipment attributes from the load shipment.
