A shipment is created, allocated, picked, packed, reported, and shipped.
Working with transportation management allows you to control a physical shipment throughout the dispatch flow. It can also be used for customer orders, requisition orders, distribution orders, and manufacturing orders - only material issues.
A shipment can also be used for managing pick-up deliveries created from a customer return or a transportation order. Since these outbound deliveries are created with the purpose of planning the transport of a vehicle to a pick-up address, these deliveries do not affect transport capacities on the shipment.
