      If you really want to override , update the shipment with appropriate rate record and rate offering information of Dry Truck and recalculate. If you want to record this as exception, make it a cost fixed shipment and adjust the costs accordingly.

      Hi LAKSHMIDEEPAK GADDIPATI, thanks for you quick answer and I really appreciate that.  Btw - is there any automatic cost computation for this case? what do I mean is during the bulk plan it will automatically compute for the cost of the dry truck.  is there a way like this in OTM?

        Hi ,

        OTM Chooses equipment first based on Items and their commodities. Dry and Ref specially depend on temperature control of items on delivery. Once list of equipment groups identified then a suitable rate will be searched. Usually rate offerings are tied to a specific equipment group. Based on temp group of items a suitable rate will be automatically selected.
