Creating SCF Ship Vias by SCF Range (MSSV)

Purpose: Use this menu option to create SCF ship via information for a selected SCF range, rather then entering this information for each SCF or drop point.

A Sectional Center Facility (SCF) code represents the first 3 digits of the destination postal code. A Ship Via code is used to indicate the areas (postal codes) where shippers deliver merchandise.

The system uses this information in order entry and order maintenance to ensure that the shipper assigned to the order can deliver to the shipping address on the order. You must create a record for every valid Ship Via/SCF combination. If a record does not exist for the ship via on an order and the SCF of the shipping address, order entry displays an error message: Ship via is not valid with ship to zip code.

You can also create SCF/ship via information using the following menu options:

Field

Description

Country

The country where the SCF is located.

Country codes are defined in and validated against the Country table; see Setting Up the Country Table (WCTY).

Alphanumeric, 3 positions; optional.

SCF code range

The range of SCF codes for which you wish to create SCF ship via values.

An SCF code represents the first 3 positions of the destination postal code.

SCF codes are defined in and validated against the SCF table; see Working with SCF Codes (WSCF).

Alphanumeric, 3 positions; required.

Ship via code

The shipper to deliver merchandise to the customer, such as 01 (UPS).

Ship via codes are defined in and validated against the Ship Via table; see Working with Ship Via Codes (WVIA).

Numeric, 2 positions; required.

Drop point

A code that represents one of your shipping warehouses or a central location to which merchandise will be shipped for consolidation.

Drop points are used in zone skipping, which enables you to ship a carton by one carrier to a drop point, where another carrier picks up the carton and delivers it to its final destination.

Note: If you are using the freight by order weight freight method, the drop point you define here must match the drop point you define in the Warehouse table. See Working with Weight Tables for Order Weight (WFTB).

Numeric, 3 positions; required.

Shipping zone

The zone within the country where the carton is being shipped in relation to the drop point. Shipping zones are sections of the country that are defined by UPS. See About Zones.

Numeric, 2 positions; required.

Shipping lead days

The number of days it takes the shipper to deliver merchandise to this SCF.

Calculation for pick slip preparation: The system checks the arrival date for each line on an order to determine when to create a pre-generated pick.

Arrival Date from Order Line (or Order Ship To) - (Pick Processing Days (B37) + Ship Via Lead Days in WSHV) < or = Today's Date

The system creates a pre-generated pick for the order line if this system-calculated date is less than or equal to today's date; otherwise, the system does not create a pre-generated pick for the order line until the date is within the allotted time frame. See Selecting Order Lines for Pick Slip Preparation for additional details.

Calculation for Alternate Shipping Charges by Via window: The system also uses this setting to calculate the Ship lead days and Expected delivery date to display at the Alternate Shipping Charges by Via Window in order entry, and this window uses a different calculation than the one described above. See the description of the Alternate Shipping Charges by Via Window for more information.

Numeric, 3 positions; optional.
