Deprecated: Sales shipment [AX 2012]

Updated: May 28, 2014

For the next major release after Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R3, the sales shipment feature will be deprecated.

Microsoft Dynamics AX customers use the sales shipment feature to create a collection of items that are packed in the same container for transport by, for example, ship, rail, truck, or plane. A shipment includes either the order, part of an order, or a consolidation of multiple orders. Based on the contents of the shipment, one or more picking routes, one or more pallet transports, or both are created.



Reason for deprecation

The sales shipment functionality duplicates functionality that was introduced in the Transportation management module released in AX 2012 R3.

Replaced by another feature

The Transportation management module released in AX 2012 R3 and the features developed for the next major release will replace the current sales shipment feature set. The new module has has more advanced features and flexible transportation processes than those offered by the current shipment interface.
