Selecting an appropriate carrier and ship method for any order based on the certain criteria is a common requirement. Oracle Order Management offers out of box functionality for getting the ship method selection based on Transportation rules that use attributes such as weight, volume, or geographic locations. Oracle Transportation Management can automate getting the ship method using pre-defined routing guides. Order Management integrates with Transportation’s functionality.
This custom solution offers a basic functionality which allows users to maintain Standard and Exception Carrier Routing Guides and to select appropriate Carrier, Ship Method based on the custom Routing Guides in Order Management.

Carrier Information – Auto Defaulting
By looking at the Carrier Information – Master Setup, system can derive appropriate Carrier (SCAC Code) and Ship Method considering factors such as – type of an order, total weight, Ship From, Ship To location etc. Derived Carrier (SCAC Code) and Ship Method can be updated on the Order/ Order Line(s) after booking.
Carrier Information – Ship Request
If your system is B2B integrated with partners then this derived Carrier (SCAC Code) and SCAC code can be communicated to B2B partner using Ship Request (RosettaNet PIP: 3B12). This PIP has a placeholder to capture Carrier and Ship Method.
Carrier Information – Mismatch Alert
Ship Confirmation (RosettaNet PIP: 3B13) from Partner will capture actual Carrier and Ship Method which is used during actual shipping. An alert can be send to respective business groups if Carrier Information received from B2B partner doesn't matches with the one which has been requested on Ship Request. Suggested Carrier Information and Actual Carrier Information can also be captured on the Order.
