Baseline Conceptual Models: Shipping and Receiving Model

Shipping & Receiving Model:  A delivery order may contain a small number of items that can be shipped in a single package.   Or a delivery order may contain many items in which may need to be split into many packages.  And a company may save shipping costs by bulk shipping many delivery orders that are going to the same distribution centers.  A shipment will have schedule which lists all the locations a shipment will be stopping at and the estimated time it will arrive for each location.  And finally shipments may be tracked by tracking the trucks and containers they are in by GPS.   This model is dependent on Delivery Order Model, Location Model, and Party and Account Model.

Please see (Baseline Conceptual Models Commentary) for further details on what conceptual models are to be used for.
