This page describes how logistical statuses are used within the Tradecloud One portal.
Description of the Logistical statuses
The logistical status of an order indicates where the order is in the physical stream of the goods from the supplier to the buyer. The following logistical statuses are used by Tradecloud:
|Open||The physical location of the goods is unknown or not (yet) applicable.|
|Produced||The production of the goods is completed, but the goods are not yet ready to ship. (Eg. because an inspection is required)|
|Ready to ship||The goods can be shipped to the final destination.|
|Shipped||The goods are shipped.|
|Delivered||The goods are delivered to the final destination|
Note: it is not required to use all statuses in your logistical process.
Where logistical statuses are used
Tradecloud uses logistical statuses on three levels, namely:
- on order level (aggregation of the Logistical statuses within the order)
- on order line level (aggregation of the Logistical statuses within the order line)
- on order delivery line level
Delivery lines are the positions in the delivery schedule of the order line. Eg. if there is only one delivery moment identified, then an order line has one delivery line. If there are two delivery moments identified, then an order line has two delivery lines.
Updating the logistical status of a delivery line
By the supplier
The logistical status can be updated by suppliers via the portal at any time, regardless of the process status of the order line. Also, the supplier can provide an ETA (Estimated Time of Arrival) & ETD (Estimated Time of Departure) when updating the logistical status of a delivery line.

A delivery line must have a position originated from the buyer’s ERP to be able to update the logistical status of a delivery line.
By the buyer
Delivery lines can be updated by buyers via the ERP integration. It is possible to influence the logistical status of a delivery line by making use of indicators, read more about this in our API manual.
