In previous article we have covered the several features that are added or changed in Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R3.

In this article we will cover the Transportation management:

In Microsoft Dynamics AX Transportation management can be used to manage the company’s transportation, and identify vendor and routing solutions for inbound and outbound orders. You can identify the fastest route or the least expensive rate for a shipment.

Following are the features that are added to Dynamics AX 2012 R3:

  • Plan transportation for inbound and outbound shipments, manage routes, and consolidate shipments.
  • Configure rating structures and shop for rates, based on charges such as fuel and customs duties.
  • View driver check-in and check-out history and driver logs.
  • Automatic or a manual process to reconcile freight bills with invoices
  • New Freight reconciliation option on the Transportation management parameters form. If freight reconciliation is not used you can de-select this option and no freight bill records will be created
  • It is now possible to print multiple packing slips directly from the load planning workbench by selecting multiple loads.
