Form Details
Route Stops

The ROUTE.E procedure is used to create delivery routes. It consists of two screens. The first screen has description and delivery day information. There can be multiple load days and delivery days for a route. Each load day is associated with one or more delivery days. If the route is considered a weekly route, that is, it happens every week, then there is no need to enter a delivery interval. If the route is not delivered weekly, then a delivery interval should be entered to control the frequency of the delivery route.

The second screen of the procedure lists all the stops on the route. Each stop number is associated with a customer. The customer can only be on one stop of one route. The route number is stored in the customer record. When a sales order is entered for that customer, if a route# exists for the customer, then the route record is read to determine when the next scheduled delivery date will be and this will be defaulted as the sales order schedule date.

The route record is also used when creating Routeship records via ROUTESHIP.E or ROUTESHIP.P1 for delivery of the shipments for the customers on the route.
