A Depot is a facility that serves as the base for logistical operations. A depot might be a warehouse, distribution center, factory, or even an assembly point for raw materials.
The Depot master in Pando enables you to create and maintain depots that are involved in dispatch planning, shipment creation or for any transactions.
Depots serve one of two purposes— they can be used as a source of shipment, ie, Consignor in a Secondary movement or as both source and destination, ie., Consignors & Consignees in a Primary movement.
Accessing Depots in Pando
To access all Depots created in Pando, go to > Data Manager and select Depots from the drop down. This brings up the list of Depots that are currently available on your Pando account.

Creating a gate in Pando (Gate Management)
Gates are pick-up points that are points through which shipments will be reported. Gates can be added individually, by clicking Add Gate button or in Bulk, by selecting UPLOAD > Pickup details and uploading the .xlsx file containing fields related to the gate.
It is important to provide the SAP reference ID of the depot when creating the gate as this is used for calculating route cost based on the Rate Matrix. Number of gates in a depot needs to be defined.
Fields marked * are mandatory and will need to be filled for the entry to be accepted. NOTE: When Mandatory fields are left empty in bulk imports, then the import will be rejected.
