JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Transportation Management - Version XE and later Information in this document applies to any platform.
The term “zone jumping” refers to a practice of consolidating parcels and trucking them to a drop point that will reduce the number of shipping zones a package must travel. This can result in overall lower shipping cost per package. If a shipper on the west coast can consolidate parcels going to the northeast, it is possible that trucking the parcels to a drop point closer to the final destination will result in considerable savings.
EnterpriseOne Transportation system can accommodate this practice via Load Building (P4960) with an intermediate destination (drop point) entered in the Load Header. When the Load is approved, a second Routing Step is created from the drop point to the final destination. This portion can be routed via a parcel carrier.
