Loading Metres As A Unit Of Measure In Rates - Enhancement (Doc ID 820934.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 08, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Transportation Management - Version: 5.5.04
This problem can occur on any platform.

Symptoms

Rating shipments by loading metres is a very common business practice in Europe.

Therefore, there should be a possibility to rate a shipment based on the loading meters value.

The idea is to enter the loading metre value as an order reference field. It is an integer value that the user must enter.

OTM currently allows to rate by order references but it doesn't consider cumulative order reference values.

For example:

Order 1 has a loading metre value of 5
Order 2 has a loading metre value of 10

OTM should rate this shipment using a value of 15. But instead it uses a value of 5.

Example rate setup:

Order Release Reference Number Qualifier = LOADING METRE
AND Order Release Reference Number Value BETWEEN 01 AND 10
CHARGE 1.00 EUR PER Buy Shipment

AND

Order Release Reference Number Qualifier = LOADING METRE
AND Order Release Reference Number Value BETWEEN 11 AND 20
CHARGE 0.50 EUR PER Buy Shipment

The above rate setup would rate the two example orders as 1.00 Euros, not 0.50 Euro.
