If you are using your own logistics, you can set-up vehicles to use for route planning.

Vehicles can be setup using the Shipment Management Vehicles page. This can be found by using the search to find the page or exploring the warehouse role centre to get to the page.

The No. field is the identifier for the vehicle. In addition, you can optionally enter a Description and Registration No. for the vehicle. 

You can also record the Gross Weight, Unladen Weight and Capacity (Volume) of the vehicle. The Gross Weight is the maximum weight allowed for the vehicle including the load. The Unladen Weight is the actual weight of the vehicle excluding the weight of any load. The Capacity (Volume) is the load capacity of the vehicle. These figures can be used in conjunction with the known weights and volumes of items included on a route to warn if a vehicle could potentially be overloaded.

A vehicle may also be linked with an existing Fixed Asset record by selecting the Fixed Asset in the Fixed Asset No. field.

There is a further option to Block a vehicle. This allows you to retain the history of the vehicle but prevent it from being used on new Delivery Area Schedules or Routes

The locations a vehicle operates from can be assigned by using Vehicle Locations:

This will display a dialog allowing all locations that the vehicle can operate from to be specified:


Marking a location as Default will automatically update the Default Location Code on the Shipment Management Vehicles list. Specifying the list of vehicle locations will prevent a vehicle being accidently assigned to a Delivery Area Schedule or Route that falls outside their assigned locations. It is also possible to use this function to specify a Shipment Bin specific to the vehicle. This can be utilised to place items picked for a vehicle to be placed in an appropriate loading bay.

You can view a list of routes that the vehicle is currently utilised on by selecting Where Used from the ribbon:

It is also possible to see where the vehicle has been used historically by selecting Posted Routes from the History menu under the Related section of the ribbon.

If a vehicle is associated with a Fixed Asset then the related Fixed Asset card can be viewed by selecting the Fixed Asset action: 

This will allow related information such as maintenance and insurance information to be viewed.

Notes and Links can also be stored against the vehicle.
