Carrier hold time

The carrier hold time determines the number of days a service carrier holds deliveries that cannot be delivered on a valid delivery day. This parameter ensures that the correct shipment date is set for carriers that do not hold deliveries for more than a specific number of days.

For example, Sterling Order Management System will not set Saturday as a ship date for a carrier that holds deliveries for only one day and does not deliver on Saturdays and Sundays. However, Sunday can be set as a ship date in this example because the carrier will hold the delivery on Sunday and make the delivery on Monday.
