Truckload planning addon
Improved truckloading through state-of-the art planning system
New truckload planning system improves ability to plan shipping.

Allegro's client wanted to plan and manipulate truckloads, allowing in-depth control of product shipment. The company also wanted to obtain open orders and other related data from established Symix system, and then manipulate these shipments into truckloads. This load information could then be further processed through the billing stage and the updated information fed back into Symix.

Allegro designed, developed, and implemented these add-on systems. The team then tested that the interface with the existing Symix system was seamless.

The new modules compile open orders, by due date or order number, into the truckload planning system. Interface with a concurrent system provides pallet size and quantity, cubic volume of load, and other information. The add-on systems allow the client to plan truckloads in advance and translate them into bills of lading at departure time from the shipping dock. The client can now track revisions to the bills of lading as corrections come back from customers. Once final acceptance of the invoice occurs, Symix inventory adjustment, general ledger and journal entry routines are invoked to feed appropriate information back into Symix for job completion processing.
