Additional address for an inter-company customer


Two companies in the same SAP system, one in the US and one in Canada. Sales order placed in the Canada Sales Org but delivery will be made from a US plant (i.e. intercompany scenario). To accompany goods, the US plant needs to produce a commercial invoice, which is set up as the delivery output.

IC customer number for the company shows up in LIKP-KUNIV, as expected. Now the problem is that both Sales Org and customer master have an address in Canada. But the business users want a completely different address to be printed on the commercial invoice (this is where freight, customs, etc. fee bills need to be sent).

Question - is there a good way to store such additional address in standard SAP, so that it could be easily linked either to IC customer or Sales Org? Normally partner functions are used for this purpose, but none of the configured functions fits and we don't want to create new config since it's a rare scenario.

The only option I found in the customer master is Contact but it's not ideal because unless we configure a function for it the users won't know what this contact is for. Any suggestions? I'd prefer to avoid SO10 or custom tables, if possible.

Thank you.
