      By implementing RDS, does it mean that this functionality for above scenarios are not available in standard TM.

      Hi Dipak,

      The standard functionality as such is also available in standard TM. It covers primarily outbound processes, OCB also covers inbound processes for shippers.

      The RDS as such serves as an implementation facilitator to leverage the standard functionality more quickly by providing the respective implementation service, implementation content, and core enablement content.

      Kind regards,

      Doreen Baseler
