Handling of Mixed and Multi-Warehouse Scenarios

With this feature, you can handle mixed and multi-warehouse scenarios within one road freight order in the Advanced Shipping and Receiving process in Transportation Management (TM). If a truck driver has to deliver goods to or pick up goods from several warehouses within a company's premises, you can provide the truck driver with detailed information about these warehouses.

Additional Details

The following features are available:

  • You or the system can define warehouse loading stops or warehouse unloading stops with exact information about the warehouse number, loading point or unloading point, and warehouse door that the truck needs to drive to. The loading point and unloading point represent a group of doors where goods are delivered or picked up.

  • You can define a loading point or unloading point in master data as a location, allowing greater control over where trucks load or unload goods.

  • If you have a warehouse where you use two different application components to manage two different parts of the warehouse, for example, Stock Room Management (STRM) and Extended Warehouse Management (EWM), you can organize your loading and unloading activities in detail by deciding which warehouse door or loading point is used by which component. You can do so using the Assign STRM Doors to EWM Doors or Loading Points app.
