Defining routing parameters
The Routing Parameters for a Buyer consist of routing guides. Routing Guides are a list of conditions which determine how a shipment should be routed. A routing guide has a time period for which is effective, and conditions for when it should be applied. These conditions are based on Freight Terms and Department.
Each routing guide contains a list of routing guide lines, each of which describe detailed conditions for selecting a Carrier. The routing guide information is based on data used by VICS (Voluntary Interindustry Commerce Standards) routing.
