SAP EM Integration with Shipping line systems

Dear EM Experts,

I am new to SAP EM. We are implementing SAP TM. We have a requirements to track the container based on the events occurs at shipping line system. We are capturing containers at Freight Unit & Freight Booking level in SAP TM.

What I read from some of the SAP EM documents is we can read the events from non sap system using RFC/BAPI/IDoc or PI. Can you please let me know what are the steps involved to read data using IDoc approach. Also, let me know what should be the changes at configuration level we need to make other then standard settings to capture standard and non standard events. Flow of event communication will be Shipping line system - > SAP EM - > SAP TM.

Thanks in advance.

Regards,

Md.Rafi

    Hi Md.Rafi,

    SAP System - You can use standard IDOC conversion approach which pretty much setting up partner profile, setting and mapping IDOC EHPOST1 and EVMSTA02 then post into SAP EM system.  Subsequent status update done through ruleset activity to update in SAP TM system. Queue update to SAP TM <-> SAP EM.

    Non-SAP System - Send file in XML format to generate EHPOST1 & EVMSTA02 IDoc, Setup partner profile to use XML port and send the file to defined XML directory, call EDI_DATA_COMING,

    then post into SAP EM system.  Subsequent status update done through ruleset activity to update in SAP TM system.  Queue update to SAP TM <-> SAP EM.

      Dear Gopi Chandrakesan,

      Your answers have been very helpful for those new to the world of MS.

      Currently I have an SAP ERP system connected to another SAP TM / MS. ERP I need to send update events in SD processes (Order (VA01), Delivery (VL02N)).

      I have set relevant function module that upon entering these transactions update these events. But they are doubling in SAP TM / EM and collapsing tables with unnecessary data

      The connection is via RFC SAP ERP --- SAP TM / MS. One could do otherwise than this. ??
      I might suggest otherwise.

      Thank you very much for your help. Will be valuable.

    Hi,

    I am looking for the same solution design but looking to update shipment status by information received from Shipping Lines systems or freight forwarder, can we use the same concept of Shipping Line system => SAP PI => SAP EM => ERP, is it correct chain?

      Hi Ali,

      It is purely depends on how the system and events architect & solutions.  You want to update from which system to which system.

      I can give you standard approach...

      Some events like below:

      Shipping Line system -> SAP PI -> SAP ERP -> SAP EM

      Some events directly update in both systems:

      Shipping Line system -> SAP PI -> SAP ERP

      Shipping Line system -> SAP PI -> SAP EM

      Acknowledgement update:

      SAP EM -> SAP ERP

      Regards
