SAP TM Reverse Logistic

Dear Experts

I'm modelling the reverse logistics scenario.

In our model I plan deliveries and returns, I'm using incremental planning. I have three scenarios, returns that last 0 day (for example I have a FO that goes to the customer, drops product, picks product), returns that last 1 day and returns that last 2 days.

Our network is as shown below

TSL= Transhipment Location: We use the Transhipment location to model when a vehicle drops producto to another vehicle
TZ = Transportation Zone: We use the transportation Zone to group customer locations to deliver/pick up product

We only visit once a day the TSL so if I have a return from TZ02 I spend 2 days to reach the warehouse as I cross two TSL

The main question is How do I model that a return will stay 1 day in each TSL?

Our plannig process is as follows:
- We plan our transport (considering deliveries and returns) on day D-1 (Sept 26th).
- On Day D (September 27th) FO1 leaves the warehouse with product for customers in transportation zones TZ01, TZ02 and TZ03.
- On Day D the transport FO5 picks up returns from customers in Transportation Zone TZ02. These returns are received in TSL04 on Sept 26th.
- On Day D+1 (September 27th) the returns are received in TSL02
- On Day D+2 (September 28th) the returns are received in the warehouse

Thank you for your help
