    The posted topic would prompt a few other questions.  Here are some questions I would have for Anand -

    1. Are you referring to a transition from an on-prem OTM deployment model?

    2. Are you referring to a company already live on OTM Cloud and you are wondering the impacts of the 6.4.2 upgrade?

  • Kelly Cooper

    Please share if you have any experience.  That's what this forum is for :)

    Very useful, thanks.

    There is no Swagger for OTM Rest API’s in 18C, it is coming in 19B. The only documentation we have in version 18C is what’s already listed in that link - The URL format http://<host>/logisticsRestApi/resources lists the resources supported in 18C and only GET operation is supported. 19B would have a lot more support for Rest APIs in OTM.

  • Zomi Fathi

    We don't anticipate any issues with these numbers.

  • Anand Sharma

    Thanks for the reply.

    We have mostly EDI Orders which will be 1500+

    and Shipments 800+


  • Zomi Fathi

    How many orders and shipments are you anticipating in a bulk plan?

  • Anand Sharma

    Of course, it was a good learning and mingling experience. 

  • Chris Peckham

    It was a great event!  I'm glad we had the opportunity to chat in person, and I hope you had a great experience at the conference.  Hopefully we'll see you again next year.

  • Anand Sharma

    It was nice catching up in OTM SIG in Bangalore.

    Yes  - partial shipment groups should provide you with the grouping desired.

    My Example is attached.  5 orders going from the same DC (DC1) to 2 different locations -  one location 90210_LOS ANGELES receives 3 orders  1 order requires its own shipment Shipment ID 03921 since it's a full truck the other 2 orders are on another multi-stop shipment Shipment ID 03922 with 2 more orders going to location 90305_LOS ANGELES.  The 5 orders and 2 shipments create 3 partial shipment groups.

  • Karl Baker


    Thanks.   Why don't you just create city to city rate lanes/rate records and then have the different rates by commodity defined  within the rate details?  

    1 Rate Record with a lane of Nasik to Gaya - with the different Gaya commodity specific rates defined

    1 Rate Record with a lane of Nashik to Ara - with the different Ara commodity specific rates defined.

    Given the shipment Naski to Ara to Gaya - OTM will select the Naski to Gaya rate record and rate the shipment with the commodity specific rates defined.

    Our requirement is exactly matching what is mentioned by you. However can we create such partial shipment groups for orders in one shipment ? 

    For Example:  Can you guide us how do we achieve below?

    Shipment # Order Release # Source Destination Shipment Group No.
    Shipment 1 Order Release 1 Nasik ARA Shipment Group#1
    Order Release 2 Nasik ARA Shipment Group#1
    Order Release 3 Nasik ARA Shipment Group#1
    Order Release 4 Nasik GAYA Shipment Group#2
    Order Release 5 Nasik GAYA Shipment Group#2
    Order Release 6 Nasik GAYA Shipment Group#2
    Shipment # Order Release # Source Destination Shipment Group No.
    Shipment 2 Order Release 7 Nasik Bhopal Shipment Group#3
    Order Release 8 Nasik ARA Shipment Group#4
    Order Release 9 Nasik ARA Shipment Group#4
    Order Release 10 Nasik ARA Shipment Group#4
    Order Release 11 Nasik GAYA Shipment Group#5
    Order Release 12 Nasik GAYA Shipment Group#5

    Our rate record is for a specific commodity and contains multiple rate lanes. for Eg in the rate record, "Source is Nasik and commodity is QUANTO_WO_SKIRACK"; there are multiple delivery cities and their respective rates configured as rate unit breaks. please refer to screenshots shared earlier for reference.

    The rule for farthest location : The farthest stop location is determined based on the stop sequence arrived at by OTM based on the Geo-code of the delivery locations. The shipment freight has to be calculated based on the sum of product freight for all orders for the farthest location.


    Shipment Cost:

    Farthest Location = GAYA

    Cost Calculation = GAYA per unit Rate (for QUANTO_WO_SKIRACK) * Quantity(QUANTO_WO_SKIRACK) + GAYA per unit Rate (for THAR) * Quantity(THAR)


    = 24,576 * 3 + 25,587 * 3


    = 1,50,489

  • Karl Baker

    What's the rule for the farthest location - i.e., if you had a multi-stop shipment that went from Naski Stop #1 -----> Gaya Delivery Stop #2-----> Ara Delivery Stop #3 would the rate record be the  Naski to Gaya rate record (assuming you had different rate records for Naski to Gaya and Naski to Ara) since it's the furthest away based on the direct distance from Naski to Gaya?   

    I assume your current rate lanes are not at a city to city level?
