Address to Delivery Run Mapping allows automation of 3 key cases:
- Pickup / Delivery Address -> Delivery Run - When a specific pickup or delivery addresses is used, it will automatically allocate the Consignment to a specified Delivery Run (ignoring Delivery Zone mapping).
- Onforwarder Address -> Delivery Run - When a specific onforwarder address is used, it will automatically allocate the Consignment to a specified Delivery Run (ignoring Delivery Zone mapping)
- Delivery Run -> Onforwarder Address (reverse mapping) - When a consignment is allocated to a specific delivery run, the Onforwarder Address will be automatically inserted into the Consignment.

1. Pickup / Delivery Address -> Delivery Run
Normally a Consignment is allocated to a Delivery Run based on the suburb and post code that is set in the Delivery Zone.
Address to Delivery Run Mapping, however, allows you to make exceptions that overwrite the rule for a given Address + Customer.
The following example shows an Address to Delivery Run Mapping which will set all consignments for the customer Droids R Us that have the Delivery Address of Shaw Of Australia, , 36 Dulwich Street, , LOGANHOLME, Loganholme, Queensland, Australia to the Land Transport Delivery Run
Please note, if the Customer field is skipped, then the mapping is applied across all Customers
2. Onforwarder Address -> Delivery Run
Onforwarder Address -> Delivery Run Mapping is similar in function to Pickup / Delivery Address -> Delivery Run Mapping, with the following difference:
- Onforwarder Address Mapping will be used when an Onforwarder Address is provided. (Delivery Address Mapping will not take place).
This is really useful if you want all consignments that share the same onforwarder address to be automatically allocated to a specific run for that onforwarder.
This can also be combined with Delivery Address to Onforwarder Address Mapping to automate the entire process of allocating a specific consignment to both an onforwarder address, and a specific run.
3. Delivery Run -> Onforwarder Address (Reverse Mapping)
Reverse Mappings are used to automatically override the onforwarder addresses of consignments when they're moved between runs.
For example: You have two onforwarders to choose from to get a consignment from your Warehouse to the final delivery point, Iga Tamworth.
Those two onforwarders are named Mikes Transport and Big Apple Freighters.
Within the system, you have two different delivery runs, Mikes Transport and Big Apple Freighters so it is easier to manage your allocations.
Assume you had originally expected to send your consignment with Mikes Transport, but due to their trucks being full you've decided to go with Big Apple Transport. If you move a consignment between the two delivery runs, you would want the Onforwarder Address to be updated automatically. This is what a Reverse Mapping allows - it means that any consignments allocated to that run will automatically have their onforwarder addresses updated.
