Most vendors operate with a "delivery date" being the date where the items are shipped from their site or most often based on Delivery terms. So depending on the Delivery terms (Incoterms)  the concept of delivery date changes. EXW often means a long lead time from shipment to delivery as opposed to DDP where shipment = delivery. There is a lot of misunderstanding with these concepts and that often leads to late deliveries... 


This means we need a similar feature on shipment and delivery as on the purchase order. Most vendors assume the delivery date is their shipment dates. It is a tough sell to change this, so a feature supporting this is sorely required and something we always do for our customers.

Purchase orders needs to have;
Requested ship date
Requested receipt date
Confirmed ship date
Confirmed receipt date

This is included as a part of my own idea;

Agreed--Many global supply chains claim ownership overseas and need more robust in-transit tracking functionality than the in-transit warehouse approach can provide. Finance and Ops have conflicting needs--Finance wants to receive the goods at time of ownership change (e.g., overseas at the origin port) but Ops teams are hesitant to receive the PO in full without some sort of quality control at the destination warehouse. Other desired features include the ability to split in-transit PO lines sea/air (e.g., part of a PO needs to be expedited) and consolidate PO's into shipping containers (e.g., based on freight forwarder shipping recommendations).


Deeper functionality for the ownership hand-off points would be a nice gain.

Agree!


The date dependency to delivery terms has to be taken into consideration when discussing departure dates and/or delivery dates.

reat input. I also think that this is a major pain point and we have also done similarly by adding interim warehouses for the larger and longer transport legs, like from Shanghai or Amsterdam.


It would be great if we could deepen the functionality on handover handling. So we would on purchase orders need expected Vendor Shipping date, Goods Handover date and On-site Delivery dates (requirement date) on inbound transactions. The transport time for each leg can be based on the same functionality as is used on Shipment/Delivery calculation on Sales orders. That means that the "Port" field needs to be extended to a lookup with an address.


In the case of FOB (and similar) you should also be able to Book and Track the shipment (booked by yourself) from the hand-off point and then maybe these transport costs are allocated directly to the received goods.
