Multiple shipment cost document for same delivery.


Hello Gurus,

I need your kind guidance please.

As we know we can assign same delivery document to multiple shipment document.

But in case of the same forwarding agent, we can also create separate shipment cost document and in this way a vendor can be paid twice.

I know that there may be a need of addition of delivery document in multiple shipment document if it is a multi leg shipment.

But for my client we use direct leg shipment and users can create delivery assign to different shipment document and create a shipment cost document also. And in this way vendor is getting paid twice for same delivery! (or it is also possible to pay two different vendors for same delivery)

Kindly guide why SAP allows to create multiple shipment cost document for same delivery.And we avoid it?

Thanking you in advance for your help!
