How to use another destination location to determine TCM when Charge Type Resolution Base is ROOT?

Hello Experts,

I have the following problem:

I need to calculate transportation charges with rates depending of charged or utilized volume (m3) on resource, and destination zone. For this, I am using the actual_volume as calculation rule. In the rate table, I have configured two rate scales (Source Zone and Dest Zone) in order to have different rates depending on the destination location.

For example:

Rate 1: ZONE-A / ZONE-B / 300$.m3

Rate 2: ZONE-A / ZONE-C / 350$.m3

The charge type is set with ROOT resolution base so that the system considers the whole capacity used at header level. Therefore, as resolution base is root, the Destination Location/Zone will be the same as the Source Location/Zone (LOC-A). This is because the vehicle's resource leaves the location where it is housed, then it goes to LOC-B (for example) to deliver goods, and finally arrives to the same location of origin (LOC-A) due to return stage.

This is a problem because the system will never able to determine Rate 1 or Rate 2.

Do you know any way to change the destination location that is determinated of the standard way?

Alternatively, how could I use the total charged or utilized volume (m3) on resource from header level to calculation charges, if the resolution base is STAGE?

    Hello,

    Standard don't support to change the destination location. Also in business wire, i think only one charge A to B is not enought.

    Suggest to use the resolution base "STAGE". System would check the total charged/utilized volume in stage firstly, if not value , then go to header level. The final result would be two charge A to B and B to A both use TC/UV in header level.

    • OK.Now i know the requirement is charge only in the first stage not for all

      Sorry for that i don't know the standard solution for it.

      One possible way is create a custom Calculation Base to get the destination of first stage. Then resolution base keep the "Root".
