Transport/Dispatch operators often do changes of loads as part of the transport management. This means that loads can be combined line by line or loads can be split line by line because of this it would be useful if a D365 user could move load lines from existing loads to another load without having to delete the load line and the from the Load planning workbench connect the order line to their respective load.

If I'm honest, I feel that individual orders should get more emphasis. D365 really gives Shipments the main emphasis, but sometimes, multiple orders end up on a single shipment, work is completed, and then it's realized but not much can be done. There should be a way to select orders within a shipment and move them to a NEW shipment. Much like you move shipments between loads.

The biggest example of this is when we ship multiple same destination orders to a customer and they each require a different PRO #. If you aren't careful, a single load is built, shipment consolidation happens automatically, and you now have only one shipment where the Pro # is entered, but technically require individual Pro #'s. We also have a customer that we don't allow consolidation currently so that, if we need to modify a load and move an order, we have individual shipments per Sales Order to be able to "Move Shipment to new Load" when technically, we are functionally moving the Sales Order.

Sales Orders need to be elevated in this system. That's where our organization focuses logistically. The benefit of consolidating SO's to consolidated shipments should be a benefit, but it can also be a hindrance.

I agree that this would be helpful for load planners either before or after a shipment is created to reduce the effort to consolidate or combine loads. When a load has many shipments, planners must currently navigate to each shipment from the Load planning workbench and "Transfer to existing load."

I agree to Kurt

I agree. We build loads but realize after they're built many times that we need to move an order to a new truck due to trailer loading constraints (weight, pallet count) and cannot do so.

There is functionality to move a shipment to a new/existing load, but that is only after work has been created.
