Applies To: Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R3


This topic applies to features in the Transportation management module. It does not apply to features in the Inventory management module.

This topic describes how to set up transportation status master codes and how to map a master code to the status codes of a shipping carrier. For example, you can use transportation master codes to interpret the codes from a shipping carrier to determine that the shipment status is Delivered.

Set up master codes for transportation statuses to interpret codes provided by shipping carriers. The transportation status that you provide for a transportation master status code can help you track the status of a load, shipment, or container.

To set up a transportation status master code, follow these steps:

  1. Click Transportation management > Setup > General > Transportation status master.

  2. Click New to create a transportation status master.

  3. In the Transportation status master field, enter a unique code for the transportation status.

  4. In the Transportation type field, select either the Shipping carrier or Hub option as the type of transportation.

  5. Enter a description and name for the transportation status.

By mapping transportation status master codes to individual codes of a shipping carrier, you associate the status codes of the shipping carrier with the status messages that you want to use.

To map a transportation status master code to a code from a shipping carrier, follow these steps:

  1. Click Transportation management > Setup > General > Carrier transportation status.

  2. Click New to map a code from a shipping carrier to a transportation status master code.

  3. Select the unique ID for the shipping carrier and the carrier service.

  4. Select the transportation status code that you want to map to the selected shipping carrier’s code.

  5. Enter the external code that is used by the shipping carrier.
