Understanding Carrier Setup

Carrier setup is the process of creating a carrier profile. You must enter information about each carrier with which you do business. The system uses the information in the carrier profile to route and rate shipments and loads.

To create carrier profiles, you must first create an entry in the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Address Book system for each carrier that you use. The JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Transportation Management system uses address book information as the basis for the carrier profile and then enables you to add more specific information, such as licenses and registration, to the basic profile. To complete the profile, you enter additional information in the carrier master and then apply the carrier to routes and rates based on the services that are offered.
