Route Determination Naming Convention

Hi Glynn,
Do you have any tips on naming conventions for routes?


The simplest is:

country ISO code + numeric sequence.

eg-India = IN0001

The sequence can have a indicator for a plant (ship from) eg:
IN1001 = India Plant 1 route 001
IN1002 = India Plant 1 route 002
IN3001 = India Plant 3 route 001
IN3112 = India Plant 3 route 112

But then the limit is 9 plants in a single country and 999 routes per plant. (Generally not many companies have more than 9 plants in a single country.)

    We can also use alphabet if its more than 9 plants.
