  • Shipment Volume Summary Dashboard
    The Shipment Volume Summary dashboard organizes common measures of Shipping Volumes, Weights, Origins, and Destinations. It shows statistics that you can use to analyze trends and volume metrics. (For example, how many packages shipped with a particular carrier/service and to what regions?)
    The visual items on the Shipment Volume Summary dashboard (each of which is discussed in more detail in this section) include:
    Shipment Volume by Carrier
    Package Weight by Carrier
    Top 10 Countries by Shipment Volume
    Top 10 Packing Locations by Shipment Volume
    To access this dashboard, log in to QAD BI using your user ID and password. QAD BI automatically redisplays the last used dashboard for a given user ID. If the Shipment Volume Summary dashboard does not appear immediately after login, use the Dashboard Menu at the top of the window. Select QAD Standard|Transportation Management|Shipment Volume Summary.

    Accessing the Shipment Volume Summary Dashboard
    A parameter selection bar allows you to specify:
    The from/to date period for the statistics
    The Shipment Direction for the shipment transactions included in the statistics

    Parameter Selection Bar
    Click in any of the date range selection boxes and type an appropriate value directly, or you can use the drop-down list and select the appropriate period date.
    Click the Shipment Direction – Inbound and/or Shipment Direction – Outbound check boxes to select or clear your choices.
    After making your selections, click Refresh to update the statistics to match the appropriate selections.
    Shipping transactions of an Outbound shipment direction are those shipments with a Shipment Type that is flagged as either Export or Domestic Outbound.
    Shipping transactions of an Inbound shipment direction are those shipments with a Shipment Type that is flagged as either Import or Domestic Inbound.
    The date range chosen in the selection bar is matched against the Despatch Date of the shipping transaction. It is the date that the shipment is despatched from the warehouse (when the carrier picks up the shipment).
    For Outbound shipments, the Despatch Date is either:
    Date of Manifested (MAN) event on the shipment’s shipping plan
    OR
    If no shipping plan yet or no MAN event on plan, the Shipment Header Despatch Date
    For Inbound shipments, the Despatch Date is either:
    Date of Manifested (MAN) event on the shipment’s shipping plan
    OR
    Date of In Transit (TRN) event on the shipment’s shipping plan
