Negative Days Held / Demurrage Days Bug Fix Demurrage

Fixed a bug that was providing negative “Days Held” values on Demurrage reporting when dates used in calculation were null/blank.

This has been resolved to ensure negative day values will not show on Demurrage Reporting.

Also we have renamed this field to “Demurrage Days” to better represent the data shown. This value represents the days between the Demurrage Start Date and Demurrage End Date

Shipment/Delivery Window Enhancement Shipments

Created Shipment/Delivery Window process to track the shipment inception and completion based on a window of days at the beginning and/or end of shipment.

Summary:

  • This will show if a Shipment was “Early”, “On Time” or “Late”; in either being Shipped from Origin or being Delivered at Destination.
  • Value will be based on the Days applied to the Shipment Window and/or Deliver Window Value – set globally at the client level.
  • This is intended to enhance “On Time” reporting for shipments beyond an exact match between Expected and Actual dates or Shipment and Delivery.
  • The Shipment and Delivery Window can be applied together or separately; with same Day or different Day values.
  • Only the “Window” with a client level value will provide expected values for shipments.
  • Values calculated are based on Dates only and do not reference any related Time
  • Shipments without values in Expected Ship Date, Ship Date, Expected Received Date and/or Closed Date may not display Window Status values

Features:

  • Fields:
    • Shipment Window Comment: Add any note related to the Shipment Window on the New/Edit Shipment pages for this specific shipment only
    • Delivery Window Comment: Add any note related to the Delivery Window on the New/Edit Shipment pages for this specific shipment only
  • Outputs:
    • Shipment Window Comment: Displays value entered in related field when shipment created/edited
    • Delivery Window Comment: Displays value entered in related field when shipment created/edited
    • Shipment Window Status: Shows if shipment was shipped “Early”, “On Time” or “Late” based on Window value
    • Delivery Window Status: Shows if shipment was delivered “Early”, “On Time” or “Late” based on Window value
  • Filters:
    • Shipment Window Comment: filters on related field data
    • Delivery Window Comment: filters on related field data
    • Shipment Window Status: filters on related field data, filter is dropdown containing options of “Early”, “On Time” or “Late”
    • Delivery Window Status: filters on related field data, filter is dropdown containing options of “Early”, “On Time” or “Late”

Process Overview:

  • Shipment Window:
    • RSI will set a whole day value at the client level as defined by client
    • This value will be added to the Expected Ship Date value on specific shipments to create the Shipment Window for that shipment – spanning multiple days
    • A Shipment Window for a specific shipment is created by adding the Shipment Window Day value to both sides of the Expected Ship Date
    • The system will then compare the Ship Date to the Shipment Window and apply a value for that specific shipment based on where Ship Date falls in relationship to that Shipment Window:
      • Early: Ship Date Before Shipment Window
      • On Time: Ship Date within Shipment Window
      • Late: Ship Date after Shipment Window
  • Delivery Window:
    • RSI will set a whole day value at the client level as defined by client
    • This value will be added to the Expected Received Date value on specific shipments to create the Delivery Window for that shipment – spanning multiple days
    • A Delivery Window for a specific shipment is created by adding the Delivery Window Day value to both sides of the Expected Received Date
    • The system will then compare the Closed Date to the Delivery Window and apply a value for that specific shipment based on where Closed Date falls in relationship to that Delivery Window:
      • Early: Closed Date Before Delivery Window
      • On Time: Closed Date within Delivery Window
      • Late: Closed Date after Delivery Window

Examples:

  • Shipment Window:
    • If you have a Shipment Window of 3 days and Expected Ship Date is 12/15/2020 then the Shipment Window will be 12/12/20 – 12/18/20.
    • If Shipment is created with a Ship Date that
      • Falls within that range then Shipment will be considered “On Time”;
      • If Ship Date is before Window then its “Early”;
      • If Ship Date is after Window then it is “Late”
  • Delivery Window:
    • If you have a Delivery Window of 5 days and Expected Received Date is 1/15/2021 then the Delivery Window will be 1/10/21 – 1/20/21.
    • If Shipment generates a Closed Date that
      • Falls within that range then Delivery will be considered “On Time”;
      • If Closed Date is before Window then its “Early”;
      • If Closed Date is after Window then it is “Late”

 

Please reach out to your RSI Representative to enable this process or if you have further questions.

Hazmat Contact Bug Fix Shipments

Fixed a bug where the “Hazmat Contact” field was not present for hazardous shipments on the Edit or View Shipment Actions (View Shipment page). The “Hazmat Contact” field was also not showing on New Shipment page when an error occurred while submitting a hazardous shipment.

Both bugs have been resolved and the “Hazmat Contact” field should appear on all New, Edit and View Shipment pages for hazardous shipments.

Note: This “Hazmat Contact” is the person certified to submit hazardous shipments to carriers (not related to the “Hazardous Materials Contact” in Products)
