Transportation lanes are relationships between two locations, two transportation zones, or a combination of locations and transportation zones that express the direct reachability of the locations, or of all locations within the zones for a specific means of transport. Transportation lanes are used during the planning of distribution and procurement between different locations. Products can only be procured if a valid transportation lane between the locations exists.
Means of transport are classes of vehicle resources, for example, a container ship or cargo ship. You assign a means of transport to each vehicle resource.
You can use the Change Lane Valid Transport Means inbound operation to change the means of transport of a transportation lane. You can also add a means of transport, delete a means of transport, or replace all existing means of transport assignments with new ones.
The Change Transportation Lane inbound operation is used to change transportation lanes. You can also use this service to change the means of transport-related attributes.
The Change Lane Valid Material inbound operation is used to change the valid products for a transportation lane.

You use the ActionCode element to specify how this inbound operation should process data:
You use the CompleteTransmissionIndicator elements to specify whether the new data replaces the old data or is added.
This service operation does not provide an element to specify a supply planning model. The default value "000" will be used instead.
