An EquipmentOperator is able to assign a load to a different equipment than the one it is currently planned on (as long as the status is PLANNED). The Equipment operator must search for another equipment with the same compartment configuration. This remains a manual process given also container compartment volumes need to be sufficient to fit the transport order. This search and planning functionality resides with the TMS system.
Look for an equipment where an assigned load is already planned
Select the option ‘Move” and search for another equipment ID that fits this load
A dialog appears allowing the user to select different equipment
User selects the other equipment and selects ‘Move planned load’ out of the list that appears
If no equipment ID appears, it might be as easy to cancel the load and assigns the transport order to a new load
