Merging Shipments Created from Network Route Not Removing Replaced Shipments (Doc ID 1642509.1)

Last updated on JULY 20, 2024

Applies to:

Oracle Transportation Operational Planning - Version 6.3.2 to 6.3.4 [Release 6.3]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


When merging 2 shipments (first leg) on a network route, the change is propagated to the rest of the shipments on the route so that the orders are now together on 1 shipment for each leg , the following issue occurs.

However, OTM is not removing the previous shipments, resulting in the order being planned on duplicate shipments.

 -- Steps
 The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps.

Orders: both have same source/dest and same pickup times.

Parameter set id: NETWORK_1
Itinerary: ITINERARY_1

Network: NETWORK

LEG_HW1: optimize, sequence: -1 -REGION_1 -> PORT1_hw
LEG_HW3: re-use equipment, sequence 0, primary - PORT1 -> PORT2
LEG_HW5: re-use equipment, sequence: 1 – PORT2 -> REGION_2

Select each order and bulk plan it using the parameter set id Network_1
Each order will be planned on 3 shipments as the route

Query for the 6 shipments associated with the orders
Select the 2 shipments going from ORIGIN -> PORT1 and use action Operational Planning-> Change Shipment Route-> Merge shipments
Select parameter of NETWORK_1
Check the “ consolidate” box and click “optimize”
The 2 shipments will be merged
Re-query for the shipments associated with the orders
Notice that you now have 5 shipments (looking at the tree view):
1 shipment with both orders going from REGION1 to PORT1
1 shipment with order merge1 going from PORT1 -> PORT2
1 shipment with both orders going from PORT1 -> PORT2
1 shipment with both orders going from PORT2 -> DESTINATION
1 shipment with order merge1 going from PORT2 -> DESTINATION
