Automate Carrier Assignment to Shipments

Dear Gurus,

I have a requirement to automate the carrier assignment to shipments.

We want to change the way a carrier is assigned to a shipment. Currently it is manual and we would like to automate it.

Please could anyone guide me if there is a standard approach for this or any other enhancement options. How to go ahead with this?

Thanks in advance.

Best Regards,

    You can assign carrier as a partner to Sold-to and if it's just 1-to-1 then it'd be proposed automatically in the order and should be copied over to the consequent documents (as configured). If there are multiple carriers assigned then the users will be prompted to select one from the list. It's a standard partner determination functionality.

    If there is more complex logic involved then, naturally, you'd have to do some custom programming.

    • There are good blogs on SCN on how to ask better questions: e.g. this one and this one. If someone just asks "how do I do X?" it leads most people to assume that this someone is too lazy to read documentation or to google their question. If it's not the case then asking more specific questions, e.g. "I need to achieve X and have tried A and B but am getting error C", etc. Good question is 80% of the answer, from my experience.
