Last updated on MAY 23, 2023

Applies to:

Oracle Shipping Execution - Version 12.0.0 to 12.2.10 [Release 12.0 to 12.2]
Information in this document applies to any platform.
Form:WSHRGZON.FMB - Regions and Zones Form
Executable:WSHMLOCR - Import Shipping Locations



A supplier, zone and transit time is newly created between the zone and an organization.   The zone should encompass the supplier created. 
The Import Shipping Locations program is then run to import the new supplier and supplier location into the corresponding region and zone.

When viewing the Zones Locations form,  the newly defined supplier is displaying as a customer and a customer location rather than a supplier
type location even after running the Import Shipping Locations program.  Since the newly created supplier is not displayed in the relevant zone,
the transit time defined for that supplier is not being honored and the ship method is not showing up in the Bill of Distribution in the Planning Destination instance.
