Package volume for Outbound dellivery

293 Views Last edit Oct 09, 2019 at 06:16 PM 2 rev

Dear colleagues, I need some insights for the following scenario:

I need to know the volume for the package in the outbound delivery.

For example, the Outbound Delivery (header) sums (totals) volume and weight of all items in the delivery considering the SKU master data.

My question is, I must use a carbon box to dispatch these products to the customer (an eCommerce scenario) and to pay the frieght the company charges me based on the goods volume, in this case not the SKU summed volume in the delivery but the volume considering the box or boxes related to that delivery.

For example, the box fits 5 SKUs, but I have put only 1 in there because the order was just for one SKU. The carrier will charge for the volume of the box not of the SKU.

Based on that, I need somehow to assign the total volume (cubic inches for example) of the boxes I used to dispatch my SKUs to the Outbound delivery.

Is there any ECC SAP standard way to have this done?

Thank you!!!

Best Regards.
