    is it possible to have shipment and load ID's created for certain order types (delivery) before the orders are released to warehouse to pick?

    Hi Jeff,

    One possibility would be to use the Load Planning Workbench to plan your loads before releasing to warehouse.  This will assign a load id, however, the shipment won't be created until you release to warehouse.  Another option would be to adjust your wave templates to not automatically create picking work at release to warehouse.  This should allow the load and shipment(s) to be created without creating picking work.

    Hope this helps!

    Yes, there are varying degrees of automation to get from a confirmed Sales order to work released in the warehouse.  You can automate the whole process, or you can manually process each step of shipment creation, wave creation, load creation, work creation, etc.  There's almost infinite configurability.

    At the core, you want to untick the "Process Waves at release to warehouse" on your Wave template,  Then you'll just get a Wave and a shipment created. Then you can either process the wave manually or use the Load planning workbench and manually build your loads and release work from there.

    Jeff,
    Another option would be to set the parameter at Warehouse management parameters -> Loads -> "Automatically create at sales order entry" to True.  This will then create the load when the sales order is entered.  You can then plan and rate/route the load without having to release it to the warehouse.
