We are struggeling with the correct delivery date in our purchase orders.
Sales an production orders are in lead for the delivery date. The suggested delivery date is managed by the MRP controller based on the delivery time in days added to the product. The supplier is replying our purchase order and confirms or declines the suggested delivery date.
Most of our suppliers based in the country locally are more the less confirming our suggested delivery date as the date it will be handed over to incoming goods.
We are struggeling with the suppliers those who are not located in the same country or region and the in special those with incoterms EXW. Our main supplier is located in Austria and we are located in the Netherlands. Suppplier is working with EXW delivery time. Transportation from Austria to the Netherlands might vary between 4 and 7 days depending on the amount of pallets. If the amount of pallets will not fill a trailer it is send on a combined (with others) directly with 2 stops on the line. With a nearly full trailer it will be send to a logistic center first and then direct to our warehouse.
In my opinion we have to add transportation time to the product for the time it will take to leave the supplier and to arrive our warehouse.
Is there some kind of function that adds the transportation time to the confirmed delivery date that will be visuable to us but also other department like sales and production?
Better idea will be when sales makes his order to the client the delivery time is showed to them as a combination of delivery time and transportion time together? When the sales order is confirmed the purcahse order will show the required delivery date without the transportation time?
How is this handled with your company or do you have a suggestion for me to use. I want to avoid a patch work of rules involved to make this a workable issue as now is suggested by our ICT department.
Hi R de Bode,
Next to the sales lead time, there are other options to calculate the sales delivery date: Order promising - Supply Chain Management | Dynamics 365 | Microsoft Docs
You can also have a look at the transportation management module where you can also do some transit time calucations: Transportation management engines - Supply Chain Management | Dynamics 365 | Microsoft Docs
Please let us know if you have additional questions.
Thank you for this information.
The first option you mentioned was not known by me and I will investigate the benefits of it.
The other option, the transportation module, we are currently investigating if this will bring us what we need.
