    Route can be determined in sales order with the help of 5 parameters: depart country, shipping conditions in customer master record, transportation group in material master, destination country, and weight group.


    Weight group plays a vital role. The purpose of route determination is like in scenario's where company will ship goods to the customer in various ways not only that it has optional of having n number of routes select the best one & based on his customer priority (time & money.) for sending samples company will go for air, for delivering ordered goods it can go for different mode of transportation & routes.


    Route Determination:

    Departure country zone (Shipping Point) +destination country zone (Ship to Party) +shipping condition (CMR or Sales Doc Header – Partners + Transportation Group (Material Master) +Weight Group (Optional) = Route. (0VRF)

    Plant determination in the sales order: System will search first for Customer material Info Record, if it is not maintained there it will check for customer master record, if it is not maintained here also system will search for material master record...


    Configuration part:

    SPRO > Routes Basic shipping functions  Shipping -LE -


    Define Routes:


    Define mode of transportation

    Define shipping types.

    Assign shipping types to mode of transportation.

    Define Routes and Stages

    Maintain Stages For All Routes

    Route Determination:

    Define Transportation Zones

    Maintain Country And Transportation Zone For Shipping Point

    Define Transportation Groups

    Define Weight Groups

    Maintain Route Determination in the combination of

    a) Departure country/Departure Zone - maintained in shipping point configuration

    b) Shipping condition from the sales order

    c) Transportation planning group maintained in General/Plant view of material master.

    d) Destination country/Transportation zone maintained in General view -Address of Customer master of Ship to Party



    Shipping is an important part of the logistics chain in which guaranteed customer service and distribution planning support play major roles.

    In shipping processing, all delivery procedure decisions can be made at the start of the process by

    Taking into account general business agreements with your customer

    Recording special material requests

    Defining shipping conditions in the sales order

    , the outbound delivery supports all shipping activities including picking, packing, transportation and goods issue. During the outbound delivery process, shipping-planning information is recorded, status of shipping activities is monitored and data accumulated during shipping processing is documented. When the outbound delivery is created, the shipping activities, such as picking or delivery scheduling, are initiated, and data that is generated during shipping processing is included in the delivery.


    Range of Functions


    An outbound delivery can be created as follows:


    With reference to a sales order

    With reference to a stock transport order

    With reference to a subcontract order

    With reference to a project

    Without any reference

    Depending on your requirements, you can create outbound deliveries automatically using worklists, or manually. You can make agreements with your customers for complete and partial deliveries and for order combinations. Outbound deliveries can be combined to form a single group of deliveries.

    As soon as the material availability date or the transportation scheduling date for a schedule line is reached, the schedule line becomes due for shipping. When you create an outbound deliver, you initiate shipping activities such as picking and transportation scheduling.


    A delivery is processed through one shipping point. Which shipping point carries out the processing for a delivery can be determined automatically during order processing or you can specify it manually in the order.

    The system carries out the following activities when an outbound delivery is created:


    Checks the order and materials to make sure the outbound delivery is possible (for example, it checks for delivery blocks or incompleteness)

    Determines the delivery quantity of an item and checks the availability of the material

    Calculates the weight and volume of the delivery

    Calculates work expenditure

    Packs the outbound delivery according to the reference order

    Checks the delivery situation of the order and any partial delivery agreements

    Redetermines the route

    Adds information relevant for export

    Checks delivery scheduling and changes deadlines (if necessary)

    Assigns a picking location

    Carries out batch determination (if material is to be handled in batches)

    Creates an inspection lot if the material must pass a quality check

    Updates sales order data and changes order status

    A shipping point can be determined for each order item. How the shipping point is determined depends on three factors:

    The shipping conditions from the customer master record (Shipping screen)

    For example, it might have been agreed with the customer that the goods are to be delivered as soon as possible.

    The loading group from the material master record (Sales/Plant Data screen)

    You could, for example, specify a loading group that defines that the goods must always be loaded with a crane or a forklift.

    The delivering plant

    A route can be determined for every order item. Determining the route in the sales order depends on the following factors:


    Country and departure zone of the shipping point

    Shipping condition from the sales order

    For example, it might have been agreed with the customer that the goods are to be delivered as soon as possible.

    Transportation group from the material master record (Sales/Plant Data screen)

    You can use the transportation group to group together goods with the same characteristics (for example, bulky goods or goods that must be transported in refrigerated trucks).

    Country and transportation zone of the ship-to party (Control screen in the customer master record)

    You can create a single outbound delivery for exactly one order, if you know the order number. Only the order items from this order that are due for shipment will be included in the delivery. You can make changes to the shipping data, if necessary.




    To create an individual outbound delivery, proceed as follows:


    From shipping, choose Outbound Delivery ® Create ® Single Document ® With Reference to Sales Order.

    The initial screen for creating outbound deliveries appears.


    Enter the appropriate shipping point.

    Specify the selection date.

    You can only deliver schedule lines whose material availability date or transportation scheduling date is the same as or falls before the selection date.


    The current date is proposed by the system as the selection date.


    If you only want to deliver some of the order items, specify the appropriate item numbers in the from item and to item fields.

    Select Enter.


    Please Reward If Really helpful,
