OTM Manager Layout "Rapid Order Release" is NOT Considering the UOM Entered for Weight Value in Further Calculation (Doc ID 2958202.1)

Last updated on JUNE 28, 2023

Oracle Transportation Management Cloud Service - Version 23.1 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


OTM manager layout Rapid Order Release is not considering the UOM entered for Weight value for further calculation. It is always picking the UOM as LB irrespective of the UOM value entered.

To replicate the observation, upon selecting the Order Configuration as 'SHIP_UNITS', if the field "Gross Weight per Ship Unit" is filled with weight and its correct UOM, system is ignoring that UOM and always picks the same as "LB" for further calculations while executing the action Get Buy Rate.

For an example:
1. If we have Rate Record based on Ship Unit Net Weight
2. Where Cost is calculated as Per KG Ship Unit Net Weight * 2 USD
3. We tried doing Rate Inquiry for 4000 KG
4. It is giving proper cost value as 8000 USD

5. Now, if we go to Rapid Order Release screen
6. Enter the details of Source Location, Destination Location and Weight as 4000 KG
7. Executing the "Get Buy Rate"
8. It gives incorrect data of 3628.74 USD


1. Rapid Order Release screen not considering the UOM entered for the Weight value
2. By default it is considering LB for calculation
3. Thus, system is picking "4000 KG" as "4000 LB" > Then converting that into KG which is 1814.37 KG > Now calculating the cost by multiplying with 2 > 1814.369 * 2 = 3628.74 USD
4. System is giving correct data in case we are putting the weight value as 8818.49 (4000 KG = 8818.49 LB) - irrespective of UOM KG or LB


Rapid Order Release screen is considering weight value always in LB irrespective of the UOM entered.

This is happening in Public Admin and Custom roles as well.

Expected Behavior : "Get Buy Rate" button on Rapid Order Release screen must follow the values/UOMs entered for further calculation to be done properly.
