What does Diversion mean?

Diversion is a term used in shipping to describe a situation where a shipment is redirected to a different destination than originally intended.

In some cases, diversion may be a deliberate action taken to optimize the shipping process, such as redirecting a shipment to a closer distribution center to reduce transportation costs.
