Here is what you can read in the PeopleBooks about the Earliest Ship Date and the way it's calculated:
Just In Time Parameters
Ship Prior To Request Date
If you select Yes, then enter a value in the Number of Days Early and Days Allowed After Request Date fields; do not leave them blank. A blank field for either of these fields equals 0 and has no effect on processing. You can use those fields to manage shipping options.
Days Allowed After Request Date
Enter the number of days beyond the requested arrival date that a customer accepts a delivery.
Number of Days Early
Specify the number of days before the scheduled arrival date that the customer accepts delivery if the customer accepts early shipments.
The system calculates the early ship date by subtracting the number of days early from the scheduled ship date on the schedule.
Actually the calculation is a a bit more complex than that. See the Knowledge <Document 1909482.1> (How the Earliest Ship Date Is Calculated when Creating or Modifying a Sales Order Line).
However, the Business Unit Closure Calendars, Carrier Calendar Exceptions, and Customer Ship Exception Dates are not taken into account in the calculation meaning that the Earliest Ship Date can fall on a day when the Business Unit is closed for shipping for example. See the attached document (click here to download it) to see how the Earliest Ship Date should be calculated.
