Default Reverse of transporter using task sequence

Hi Friends,
I have attached a model in which custom code is written for the transporter under "request transport from" of rack. The transporter after loading the flow item rotates anti-clockwise to reach the node.But what i intended to do is to make the transporter move on reverse direction (till the offset distance from rack) after loading flow item from rack and rotate clockwise direction to reach the node. Please help to achieve this.

Please see see attached model.

I toggle the "Rotate while travelling" switch on the transporter using two messages added to the task sequence.

Take a look at the "Use transport" code on the Flow tab of the rack and the message trigger code on the transporter.

You might want to consider adding more network nodes and sending the messages on arrival to the nodes.
