Delivery Assignment to TU

Hello EWM experts,

This is a conceptual query in EWM.

Consider a case wherein more than one warehouses have been defined in EWM and deliveries are created and transferred from ERP to EWM corresponding to these multiple EWM warehouses. During execution, does EWM allow assignment of such deliveries (corresponding to different EWM warehouses) to a single TU? Or is it required that deliveries corresponding to a single warehouse only must be assigned to Transportation Unit?

Thanks,

Ruturaj

    Hi Ruturaj,

    Physically transportation unit is your truck in which pallets can be loaded regardless from same or different physical warehouses. Ideally system should be flexible to do this. Otherwise you need create multiple TU for the delivery pick on same route.

    I guess there would be some limitation however system should allow this.

    This is query for you but in past we had this problem where delivery from Malaysia assigned to TU from Indonesia. 😊 for which we raised OSS to not allow this kind of assignment.

    Thanks,

    Sandip

    Hi Ruturaj,

    Think logically, to me it should be deliveries of the same warehouse can only be assigned to a TU. Other thing is the delivery timelines are also important because if there are two deliveries whose delivery dates are different then it is not possible even for same warehouse deliveries to be combined in one TU. Generally this part is taken care by SAP TM or LE-TRA where you club multiple deliveries into shipments based on the timelines.

    Hi Ruturaj,

    System allows user to assign multiple deliveries belonging to different warehouses to a single TU.

    During the delivery assignment in /SCWM/TU, the warehouse in which TU created is defaulted. You just need to clear that warehouse and system will pull the deliveries that matches secretion criteria.

    When I looked at little more details, I could see that TU are not associated with warehouse, but it is the S&R activity that has the link to yard Warehouse. But this is purely my view.

    Hi,

    from the tests I did: yes, it is no problem to assign deliveries from two warehouse numbers to the same TU.

    But process-wise it did not work. The problem was (I have not tested it for some time, but I do not think that the behavior has changed) that after checking in at the first warehouse and loading the delivery from that warehouse, I could not check out the TU from the warehouse - because it was not fully loaded.

    So I suppose what does work is that you use two TUs with the same external TU number.

    • Hi,

      We can maintain the TU at warehouse level, when i checked 'advanced search ' option , there is no selection parameter as ' warehouse number', if we want to assign the other WH relevant delivery to the TU.

    Hi,

    it is important to understand that EWM does not plan a transport - but only the activity of a transport on shipping OR receiving!
    So it is clear that deliveries shipped from Malaysia and deliveries from Indonesia must be not on the same TU activity! Of course you can create two different activities of the same TU as those activities will also have a different timeslot!

    But often there are several warehouses located near to each other and supported through the same yard - in this szenario the different warehouses can be assigned to the same yard.

    You can load deliveries from different warehouses to a TU activity when the warehouse is assigned to the yard of the TU activity. Prerequisite is the use of yard management. Acitivities like loading or GI must be done per warehouse and cannot be triggered at once from /SCMW/TU
