Request of Truck

Most of the time, a warehouse is built to store stuff within a duration and shipped out in time to come. The duration can be short or long, subject to type of product and the business itself.

Most third party warehouses in Malaysia today isn't just for storage but logistics service as a whole. Hence, the value of a warehouse/logistics provider isn't just to provide a storage space but most importantly, delivering product to the end customer (or whatever it suppose to be).

It has been a standard feature in Xtreme WMS to help user to track ACTUAL vehicle number, truck driver, the mode and capacity of the vehicle and etc in our Issue program.

The point is, the Capacity or Mode of transport can be different between the original request and the actual delivery.

For example, you may request the transport company to deliver product with a one (1) ton truck, however, there are cases where transport company doesn't have a one (1) ton truck to spare at that moment but a three (3) ton truck. In this case, Xtreme WMS Issue module is made to record the truck that made the delivery, in which a 3-ton truck.

In some cases, we need to know the original request and how is it mapped to the actual delivery later. Such link of information is vital, especially for billing of logistic service.

In order to fulfill the requirement, we made a new module by the name of "Request of Truck" and shipped in Xtreme WMS version 8.1.14.
