Transport Capacity EDI Message Requirements
In the Transport Capacity Requirements message the Logistic Services Buyer will define their transportation capacity requirements by developing a forecast based on aggregated demand covering extended periods of time. (i.e. product/order forecasts are rolled up and extended to shipment forecasts). These requirements should take into consideration seasonality, promotions, production capacities, as well as other factors. As a shipping horizon gets closer, the transport capacity forecasts may become more detailed. The transportation capacity requirement message is sent to the Logistic Services Seller.
