Assign a rate and route to a load [AX 2012]

Updated: June 3, 2014

This topic explains how to assign a rate and route to an inbound or outbound load.

This topic describes how to assign a rate and route to an inbound load and outbound load so that the rate can relate to other tasks in the transportation planning for loads. The tasks of assigning a rate and route to an inbound and outbound load are similar, the only differences are the origin of the load. An inbound load is generated by a purchase order or a transfer order, and an outbound load is generated by a sales order. In the Load planning workbench form, you select the sales order line, transfer order line, or purchase order line.

For an overview of these processes, see Business process: Planning transportation for inbound loads and Business process: Planning and processing outbound loads for shipping.

The following table shows the prerequisites that must be in place before you start.
