Tracking Cost of Not Moving at Earliest Date for Routing Choice Consideration
SummaryIt costs money to have product stored at a warehouse, so waiting until later in the pickup window incurs extra expense. How can this expense be accounted for in carrier/route selection when planning?
We’ve run into a unique ask from a customer that is a Shipper. I have to give a little background for it to make sense though. Customer buys "Product". When they choose to buy the "Product", it is already in storage at a 3rd Party Warehouse. They pay “$x/day” for the "Product" to store there. They also have their own warehouses that they can transfer the "product" to and store before moving along to the final destination.
