What is the need / problem

Mary delivers the products to her customers in different pick-up points. She needs to know what quantity of a given product needs to be delivered on each distribution location.

Who does it impact

Multi-delivery places hubs

What is the current impact of this problem

  • Entreprises duplicates and lack of efficiency: Today in order to be able to manage different pick-up points, a hub needs to create one entreprise per pick-up point and create complex order cycles with all the entreprises in the outgoing session > duplicates, and time consuming.
  • Prevent users to transact on OFN: For some hubs who have many pick-up points it simply prevent them from using the OFN (like Alterconso in France, 14 pick-up points, unmanagable)

What is the benefit in focusing on this

  • Improve hub’s management efficiency
  • Avoid duplicates
  • Clarify discovery for multi-pick-up location hubs

Potential solutions that will solve this problem

  • Add “location” concept in the OFN Data model
  • Review shipping method creation to link a shipping method with a location
  • Enable filters based on location
  • Include that into reports filtering/extractions
