Route - Transit Time

According to the business through EDI customer places orders. We maintain two shipping conditions delivery and Pick-up. Based on the customer profile we assigned shipping conditions on the ship to customer master in the shipping tab.

My query is related to the customers assigned Pick-up as a shipping condition in customer master.

As we receive orders through EDI sometimes pick-up customer will send in 2 dates on their orders.

1. Requested delivery date u2013 The date they want the order in their warehouse.

2. Requested ship date u2013 The date they want to pick up the order.

In some cases customers will only send one date that is requested delivery date. In this scenario our customer service team is manually back out the date accordingly so it will show the correct u2018material availability dateu2019 and u2018loading dateu2019 on the u2018overviewu2019 of the order under u2018shippingu2019 tab.

Eg: If customer sends the req delivery date is 05/27/2009 order created for the same. Manually we back out the date to 05/24/2009 so that the material availability date and loading date would also be changed to 05/24/2009 on the overview of the order under shipping dat.

How to achieve the functionality where the system will back the order up to show the u2018material availability dateu2019 and the u2018loading dateu2019 as the date that the carrier will be coming in to pick up the order ie On 05/24/2009 and material available in the customer warehouse on 05/27/2009.

If I can maintain the transit time as 2 days for the route determined (t code 0vtc) I can achieve this functionality. However I canu2019t maintain the lead time because we are not arranging the carrier, customer is arranging the carrier and that will be coming in to pick up the order.

Please advice.

Thanks.
