Example: Set this field to 1500 if you would like to add a day to the shipping lead days and expected delivery date calculation for display at the Alternate Shipping Charges by Via window when the current time is 3:00 p.m. or later. If the shipping lead days would otherwise be 4 and the expected delivery date would otherwise be June 29, the window displays a shipping lead days setting of 5 and an expected delivery date of June 29 if it is currently past 3:00 p.m.
• This system control value affects the shipping lead days and expected delivery date at the Alternate Shipping Charge by Via window in order entry or order maintenance only, and does not affect any other screen, window, or calculation.
• The system control value also plays a role in calculating the shipping lead days and expected delivery date for the Alternate Shipping Charges by Via window. You can use the system control values together or independently; for example, you can add the additional days for the weekend without also taking the warehouse cutoff time into account, or vice versa; you can use both factors to extend the shipping lead days and expected delivery date; or you can omit both factors.
• If the arrival date on the order is in the future, the expected delivery date will never be sooner than the arrival date. For example, if the current date is 6/1 and the arrival date is 6/30, the expected delivery date will be at least 6/30, even if the normal calculation of , lead days for the SCF/ship via), and other factors indicate a sooner expected delivery date. The shipping lead days, however, will reflect the actual time estimated to ship the order to the customer.
