The key area of Shipment Management is the route. The delivery and collection of the goods is scheduled on a Shipment Management Route based on the shipment management criteria. Orders that are within the same Delivery Area, Location, Shipping Agent and Shipping Agent Service will be placed on the same delivery route.
From the route, the warehouse and logistics operations associated with the route can be performed and any required documentation can be produced.
Shipment Management Routes can be found by using the search feature within Business Central or from the Shipment Management Planner role centre.
The Shipment Management Route list shows a summary of each scheduled delivery route. The list can be filtered for a specific Location or Shipping Date. The routes page will automatically filter to show routes that haven't been completed with Shipment Dates up to and including the current Work Date.
It is also possible to see routes on future dates. This can be useful for forward planning. This can be enabled by setting the Route Display Window option on the Shipment Management Setup.
|Note: A user can only view routes for locations which they are assigned to the in the Warehouse Employees page.
Using the Edit or View buttons, or double clicking the route will open the Shipment Management Route page.
