Using DEADHEAD Distance to Rate Shipment Instead of LOADED Distance When Order has Zero Weight (Doc ID 882880.1)

Last updated on JULY 09, 2014

Applies to:

Oracle Transportation Management - Version: 6.0 to 6.0.3
This problem can occur on any platform.

Symptoms

-- Problem Statement:

When an order has zero weight, but non-zero volume, the miles are entirely being categorized as DeadHead. This causes only the DeadHead Rate Cost to be used. This happens even for a regular two-stop shipment where there is no deadhead.

-- Steps To Reproduce:
1. Create an Order with Zero Weight and Non-Zero Volume
2. Plan the order onto a shipment
3. Notice the following in the logs:

RateEngineDetails RECharge.evaluate(): Testing: (SHIPMENT.LOADEDDISTANCE <0 MI> between 0.1
MI..5.4 MI) batch - 2
RateEngineDetails RECharge.evaluate(): Testing: (SHIPMENT.DEADHEAD_DISTANCE <62.08 MI>
between 0.1 MI..5.4 MI) batch - 2

Note: LOADEDDISTANCE is 0 and DEADHEAD_DISTANCE is positive.
