inbound shipment cost calculation taking average amount during planned delivery MIRO

  • 1.PO has been raised with the Inbound Delivery flag under Confirmation Tab.
  • MIGO done : Quantity = 2 , Shipment Cost = 41,295.36
  • Inbound Delivery (VL31n) / Shipment Document (VT01n) / Shipment Cost (VI01) has been booked and cost captured accordingly. (Refer Screen Shot 1 – Shipment Doc)
  • MIGO has booked.
  • Shipment Cost loaded on material and liability posted to Freight Liability account = 41,295.36.
  • System proposed correct Shipment Cost against 1st Fright MIRO and accordingly MIRO posted against Transporter. (Refer Screen Shot 1 – PO History Screen)
  • Freight Liability account cleared and value posted to transporter = 41,295.36.
  • MIGO : Quantity = 1 , Shipment Cost = 41,295.36
  • Inbound Delivery / Shipment Document / Shipment Cost has been booked and cost captured accordingly.
  • MIGO has booked.
  • Shipment Cost loaded on material and liability posted to Freight Liability account = 41,295.36.
  • System proposing Wrong Shipment Cost as “27,530.24” instead of 41,295.36 in Fright MIRO against Transporter.
  • Please help us where is the configuration setup needs to be done to change this system behavior .

    Not sure why you are looking for a configuration to change this behavior, I doubt that the values are coming from configuration, and you did not yet explain from where the 27530.24 is picked. What values does your condition tab in the purchase order have?

    And where is your screen shot? you wrote "Refer Screen Shot 1 – PO History Screen"

    Hi,

    Freight liability is created through Inbound shipment process. when shipment cost/Freight cost captured through inbound process , inbound condition type will be maintained as zero. System determines the cost at time of MIGO based on shipment cost captured at shipment cost document ... In This case MIGO will be booked against inbound delivery.

    While creating MIRO system propose 27530.24 where as costcaptured in shipment document is 41,295.36.

    while debugging we found, system is considering average price.

    • How is this average calculated?

      I am not able to get to this "average" with the data provided .

      or did you want to say "proportional" instead of "average"?

    MIGO1 shipment cost 41,295.36 and Quantity =2 .

    MIGO2 Shipment cost 41,295.36 and Quantity = 1 ,

    system has taken average while proposing MIRO : Total amount / Qty = 82590.72/ 3 = 27530.24 .

    When I do 1st MIRO for qty 2 and amount 41,295.36 for 1st MIGO , system is proposing 82590.72 with qty 3 . I have change the qty as 2 and amount as 41,295.36 and cleared the MIRO . .

    2nd time when I do MIRO system proposes Amount 27530.24 and qty 1 . Where as It should propose qty 1 and amount 41,295.36.

    Please suggest , why this is proposing , In case of inbound delivery freight process. We are not find any issue if we maintained freight as condition type in the Purchase order.

    Thanks .

    I think this has pretty much to do with the fact that SAP is not really able to work with fix freight rates and partial receipts

    It usually proportions the freight applicable for the entire item to the quantity that was received (1 + 2).

    But in your case the freight is based per shipment (1 + 1)

    Unfortunately I can't here help in more detail as I have not such cases in my environment

    Nevertheless those 2 OSS notes are worth to read:

    870784 - MIGO: Incrrct dlvry costs transferred from freight cost doc

    427944 - Info: Shipment costs as delivery costs during goods receipt
