Order and delivery period

Target audience

  • Supplier organizations
  • Customer organizations

Purpose

Replaces the single trade period with a seperate order period and delivery period. This means that supply lines can be created for the long term without the customer being able to buy on it.

Guidance

  • An order period can be created with a startDateTime and endDateTime by the supplier;
  • An order period can be requested with a startDateTime and endDateTime by the customer;
  • Sales orders can only be placed on supply lines between the startDateTime and endDateTime of the order period of the supply line;
  • A delivery period can be created with a startDateTime and endDateTime by the supplier;
  • A delivery period can be requested with a startDateTime and endDateTime by the customer;
  • Sales orders can only be placed with a delivery date which is between the startDateTime and endDateTime of the delivery period of the chosen supply line;
  • Order period and delivery period can partially or completely be the same, however:
    • Only the order period can start and/or end earlier than the delivery period;
    • Delivery period cannot start earlier than the startDateTime of the order period;
    • Delivery period cannot end earlier than the endDateTime of the order period;
  • Supplier can choose a different order and delivery period for each individual supply line;
