Dynamic routing

Dynamic routing uses an external resource to determine how to assign shipments to loads. If dynamic routing is used, then the routing guides are not used.

Dynamic routing can be performed several ways. One approach is to integrate a Transportation Management System (TMS) with Sterling Order Management System Software. A Transportation Management System provides detailed planning of routing of loads.

A second approach to dynamic routing is to implement a User Exit, which then consults an external source for routing planning. For example, the buyer may maintain its own routing system, which takes into account which loads are being routed to which facilities on the day of the proposed load shipment. The buyer then can determine how to route this load. The User Exit can be used to consult the buyer, and update the Sterling Order Management System Software routing processing.
