Load building strategy


Using load building strategies to automatically build loads can be beneficial when you:

  • Ship a certain set of products regularly. Rather than building loads every time, you can apply load building strategies.
  • Want to maximize efficiency by avoiding half full loads.

Supply Chain Management provides a load building strategy called the Volume-based load building strategy. This strategy lets you use the maximum values that are specified for height and weight in the load template, or you can override the settings by entering new values.

To use this strategy, select it in the Load building strategy field on the Transportation management > Planning > Load building workbench page.
