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:

OpenThe physical location of the goods is unknown or not (yet) applicable.
ProducedThe production of the goods is completed, but the goods are not yet ready to ship. (Eg. because an inspection is required)
Ready to shipThe goods can be shipped to the final destination.
ShippedThe goods are shipped.
DeliveredThe 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

Delivery lines 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, at the incoterm location) when updating 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.
