OM Next gen + IV to support CARRY/DEL delivery methods

Existing OM supports multiple delivery methods, but next gen SaaS plus IIV only supports SHP for availability. A simple fix as an interim solution is send delivery method SHP to IIV so that it returns that availability back so that DEL/CARRY methods continue to work in OMS.

This is a quick interim solution while IIV adds support for CARRY/DEL delivery methods

Currently we have to manually change the service that invokes IIV with this additional logic to get delivery services working which is not ideal, as this is an OOTB service which shouldn't be touched

    In order to identify carry-only item's ATP (eg. for an item that's eligible for CARRY only such as a new product trial release), we suggest a workaround of setting that SKU's SHIP and PICK safety stock to 100%. Our latest feature release allows users to look up ATP with/without safety stock.

    CARRY/DEL method is not planned to be supported in the short term 2021 roadmap, but it will be considered for future iterations.

    It would be helpful if you can expand on the reason for this use case.
