Pool Shipments Not Being Considered as Multistop with Linehaul Shipment
Last updated on MARCH 01, 2016
Applies to:Oracle Transportation Management - Version: 5.5.2
This problem can occur on any platform.
When planning orders through a pool, the resulting Pool shipments are not being combined with the Inbound Linehaul shipment in order to form a multistop shipment through the pool (which is a cheaper option). As an example:
Bulk Plan 4 orders, all from same source to four destinations (A, B, C and D). The Bulk Plan yields 5 shipments:
- 1 TL to the pool
- 4 LTL pool shipments
If the planner takes one of those pool shipments (let's say the one to dest A) and runs action "Manage Pool Shipment -> Convert Pool to Multistop", it will then successfully combine with the linehaul to form a multistop TL shipment (that passes through the pool), the cost is cheaper.
i.e. new TL shipment = Source -> Pool -> A
Therefore the desired solution of the bulk plan is:
- 1 TL shipment Source -> Pool -> A
- 3 LTL Pool shipments
