    Hi,

    Shiping type - you define the shipping types in combination with the mode of transport. The shipping types can include the following:

    Truck

    Truck with trailer

    Plane

    Ship

    Leg indicator for shipment stage

    Specifies what kind of shipment leg you are dealing with.

    Use

    You can use this characteristic to classify the shipment leg for analysis purposes.

    The leg indicator is determined internally for legs which are created by automatic leg determination.

    Examples

    The following leg indicators are can be assigned to shipment legs:

    Preliminary leg:

    A subsequent main leg shipment exists or is required for this shipment.

    Subsequent leg:

    A preceding main leg shipment exists or is required for this shipment.

    Main leg:

    One or more preliminary and subsequent shipment legs are required for this shipment.

    Direct leg:

    No other shipments are linked to this shipment.

    Return leg:

    Means of transport is returning to its base.

    Dependencies

    The leg indicator at leg level is influenced by the leg indicator in

    the header and automatice leg determination:

      Hi Amol,

      As per the given example

      Chennai --> dockyard -


      > Preliminary Leg

      Dockyard --> shanghai dockyard -


      > Main Leg

      If you want to add Subsequent Leg in that case then we have to modify the scenerio

      our scenerio was

      Chennai --> dockyard --> Dockyard --> shanghai dockyard

      Now we will add Beijing in this route

      So your goods are going as follows

      Chennai --> dockyard --> Dockyard --> shanghai dockyard --> Beijing

      Now from shanghai --> Beijing is your Subsequent Leg

      Hope this helps,

      Regards,
