Shipment cost Document - Gross Weight determination from Shipment doc

Dear Experts,

Issue: While creating the Shipment cost document, Condition base value for calculating freight rate is being determined from Delivery ----> Header ----> Gross weight. As per my Shipment cost document configuration, it is expected to consider Gross weight from Shipment document as Condition base value

Configuration details as below:

1. Calculation basis for Freight condition type is maintained as 'D-Shipment Cost Item'

2. Calculation type is maintained as 'T - Multi Dimensional'

3. Scale Id is maintained and Assigned to the condition type - Scale Basis is 'D-Gross Weight' & Calculation Rule 'D-Gross Weight'. Here I've used Rounding rule as per my requirement and Price Unit as 100 KG per unit. Scales are maintained with Absolute & Relative values.

Shipment Overview: Gross weight is 1918.400 KG

Delivery Overview Gross weight: 1868.400

Shipment cost document - Freight determination overview - Where we can notice that Gross weight 1868.400 is being taken from Delivery Header. Whereas my expectation is to consider from Shipment doc with 1918.400 (Shipment cost Gross weight includes the Tare weight).

Note: If I maintain my freight condition type configuration as Calculation type 'D- Gross weight' & Calculation Base as 'D-Shipment cost item' then the Condition base value is considered from Shipment Gross weight. However, in my requirement I need to use Scales suing Multi Dimensional Calculation type T.

Not sure if I'm missing any necessary configurations. Appreciate your thoughts here.

Thank you

    Dear Friends,

    I did my further investigation for the reported issue. It's been understood that it is a standard SAP behavior when Calculation type is 'T-Multi Dimensional'.

    For more details refer SAP Note: 374735 - Info: Determination of weight and volume for freight.

    Thank you

    I believe in condition type, you have an option to set Calculation Base which by default will be Delivery item. You need to change it to Shipment Cost item. Not sure on this as long time back, I did this.

    • Hi Lakshmipathi,

      Thanks for your response.

      My condition type is already maintained with Calculation base as 'D-Shipment cost item'. However, Calculation base is taking Delivery Gross weight instead of Shipment Gross weight. This is the behavior of SAP only when I'm using Calculation type 'T-Multidimensional'. If I use other Calculation type e.g. 'D-Gross weight' then Calculation base weight is taken from Shipment document.

      Thanks again for trying to assist me here.
