Logistics Management

Manage the inbound or outbound delivery process.

This module accepts, stores, and manages the execution of a delivery plan accounting for complex movement of goods, such as merge-in-transit, continuous movement, lane optimization and cross-docking. Logistics Management coordinates all activities in the delivery chain and monitors events and notifies participants when deviations occur. Shipment and delivery records are tied to the original sales or purchase orders for management of dependencies among orders and shipments.

You can establish how shipping planning considerations should be assessed and you can increase the efficiency of your delivery planning by establishing conditions and processes for interacting with your buyers.

Shipment planning features

Logistics Management offers many features to provide flexible shipment planning. You can establish conditions that control how consolidation of shipments, creation of loads and routing are performed. These conditions are established for the Enterprise, and can also be established for each Buyer organization. You can then establish the conditions of the organization that should take precedence if there are any conflicting conditions.

Key delivery planning features include:
  • Using economic shipping parameters

  • Determining routing
