To set up the vendor transport method on items, you just open an item card, go to the replenishment, and you enter the vendor number.

In this case, a lot of calculation is happening in the next fields, and actually also in the lead time calculation. So this is what’s happening. When entering the vendor number, it automatically takes the vendor transportation method from the vendor card. The transportation method from this vendor is by C, and it normally takes three months from when it’s leaving the vendor till it reaches us. The vendor lead time is a field that corresponds with the lead time calculation on the vendor card. In this case, it means the handling time for the vendor, the internal handling time. So the total lead time calculation, which is a standard field, is now created by the vendor lead time and the vendor’s transport time.

So in this case, this item takes like three months and seven days from the day we purchase till we get it on the ramp. It is possible on any item that do have a vendor number with transport methods to change the specific transport method or the transport time on this particular item. So if I know that this item always comes by air, it automatically changes. So now it’s a total of nine days, but I can also change the transport time. Actually, what I also do know is that when it comes with the air transport from this vendor, they only have like one shipment a week from the airport. So actually, this will take one week. I can do that so that all items from the same vendor has different lead times, although they can have all the same transport method.
