TPVS - Transportation Zone Hierarchy

Former Member

I have just started learning TPVS. I created the Transportation Zone and Hierarchy and Maintained Transportation-Relevant Hierarchy.

However, I got the message : "Transportation zone Hierarchy not found" , when I executed the transaction "Interactive vehicle scheduling". Still I was able to run the optimizer and get some suggestion for the route or transport

After I removed the record maintained under  Maintained Transportation-Relevant Hierarchy, the message disappeared but I don't see any change in the route suggested by the Optimizer.

I would like to know if this Transportation Hierarchy has any impact on route determination.

What is the use of Transportation Zone other than combining the shipments.

Also how to solve the message "Transportation zone Hierarchy not found", in a proper way.

Thanks in advance!

Hi Jack,

Did you create your Transportation zones as location? Your Transportation zone must be created with the location type 1005. Then, you will be able to assign them in your hierarchy.
