Question on Creation Of Junctions/Stops When Mode Of Transport Is 'Rail' (Doc ID 360136.1)

Last updated on OCTOBER 23, 2019

Applies to:

Oracle Transportation Execution - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Background :

The client is implementing Oracle Transportation Execution 11.5.10. The
primary mode of transport used is Rail. When the mode of transport is Rail,
there is a requirement to define junctions (stops), switches (change over from one carrier to another) in oracle applications. The business equirement is as follows:

 The carrier is the one who owns the rail road from one point to another.
Whenever a rail car passes through the rail road, that particular carrier is
being picked up. At the point where the ownership of the carrier changes
(ownership of the rail road changes) the rail car is handed over to the next
carrier. During the course of the journey of the rail car, based on the route
rail car is passing through it might require to pass through that many carriers as owned by the rail road.

When the client require to sent the rail car owned or leased by him through
a particular rail road, he will contact one particular carrier (generally the
carrier owning the first part of the rail road), who in turn prescribes the
route to be followed. The client pays to the first carrier and who in turn
pays to the subsequent carriers involved. If the rail car takes deviation in
the route than prescribed, the carrier will charge additional charge. So it is
important for the rail car to pass through these junctions and switches as

Questions :

Where can documentation to address the scenario of defining switches and junctions be located for Oracle Transportation execution ?

The implementation of Oracle Transportation Execution is already in progress. It may not be possible to undo what the implementation is already done and go ahead and implement Glog. I understand from your update that Glog has the capability and supports mode of transport as 'Rail'
and 'Ocean'. But since we are already underway of implementation, what is the procedure to go ahead?
If Oracle TE does not have the capability other than 'parcel', LTL and TL then I have following questions:
 Why in the LOV of Mode of transport we can see 'Rail' or 'Ocean'? What does that signify?

This is a standard LOV that is provides as part of Oracle Order Management/Shipping. It is provided for informational purposes only. Oracle has some Oracle Order Management/ Shipping customers that choose to mark their mode as rail on their delivery or trip. They can do this but there is no explicit functionality available to support rail processing
 Is there any documentation mentioning Oracle does not support mode of Transport as 'Rail' Or 'Ocean'?
