It's availability, but not as you currently know it!
Carrier optimisation upgrade
Carrier availability, down to postcode level for multiple postcodes and multiple trucks
Why do we need it?
Optimised carrier selection using availability has always been by region by number of trucks
Now it can be configured to be by multiple postcode by number of trucks as a carrier can have 10 trucks to cover postcodes CV, NN, LE and NG.
How to configure?
There is a new update to the user interface for adding availability and in the logic to allow the selection of multiple postcodes for a fixed number of trucks.
Adding carrier availability
Add through Carrier VITALS
Add from a source to single or multiple postcode stubs
For the total number of available truck types
Using carrier availability
A carrier will be auto selected if it is available for a postcode
The available trucks will update in Change Carrier to show remaining
If 2 carriers compete the cheapest cost will be included
When all available trucks are used the next best option will be used (image 4)
Priority carrier can still be used in situations where x2 carriers have the same cost for a route.
