Shipping Point Vs Loading Point

A little clarity is needed btn the two...I think shipping point could be equated to a control office where all deliveries have to go through. Loading point is a physical location that deals with specialized (eg within car spare parts divison - sensors, belts, lights...etc) handling and could be at every plant location where goods are loaded onto the shipping vessel. How accurate is my understanding of the subject?

    Hi,

    Shipping points are top level master data setup of the Organization in Shipping.Deliveries are always initiated from exactly one shipping point.A shipping point is assigned to one or more plants and can be subdivided into several loading points.

    A Loading point is a sub division of a shipping point.It is manually entered into the header data of the delivery document.

    Award me points if i am clear.

    regards

    kiran

    Hi,

    <b>Shipping point</b> : The physical location (for example, a warehouse or collection of loading ramps) from which you ship the item.

    Use

    You can predefine shipping/receiving points in the system, based on different combinations of

    plants

    shipping conditions

    loading groups

    During delivery processing, the shipping/receiving point is the most important criterion that you use to select deliveries.

    A delivery can be shipped from one shipping point only or received at one receiving point only.

    If you want to provide more detailed information about a shipping point you can specify a loading point (for example, one of a number of different loading ramps).

    Example

    If, for example, you want to ship refrigerated goods to a certain customer by rail, the system proposes a shipping point with a suitable location and equipment for loading refrigerated goods onto rail cars.

    Procedure

    The system can propose a shipping/receiving point. If valid alternatives are predefined in your system, you can change the shipping/receiving point manually.

    You can define a user-specific default value for the shipping point in the user parameter VST.

    <b>Loading point</b> The exact physical location where the loading of a delivery item takes place (for example, the number of a specific loading bay).

    A loading point is a subdivision of a shipping point.

    The loading point can be entered manually in the delivery header.

    First enter the shipping points for which you want to define loading points.

    To define the loading points for this shipping point, enter a two- character, alphanumeric key and a description. In addition, you can enter a short text for each loading point to indicate the area of responsibility.

    Hope it helps. Pl reward if useful.

    Thanks & Regards

    Shipping Point is the organizational unit through which the material can move out of the plant. In a lay man term the gate of the plant from which material is being despatched is a shipping point. If shipping point is not determined in Delivery related order, it will not be possible to move the material out in the syste.

    Loading point is one of the component of shipping process. For eg. gate of a storage locationin a plant from which the material is to be loaded.

    Hi Dgitts,

    <b>Shipping Points:</b> Independent organizational entities, such as shipping points, are responsible for scheduling and processing deliveries to customers, as well as replenishment deliveries to your own warehouses.

    A delivery is always carried out by one shipping point only. The shipping point depends on the following criteria:

    1)Delivering plant

    2)Type of shipping (for example, train, truck)

    3)Loading equipment necessary

    <b>Loading Points:</b> Shipping points can be subdivided into loading points. For example, ramp 1, ramp 2 and ramp 3 belong to the shipping point Forwarding depot.

    The transportation planning point is an organizational unit in Logistics, responsible for planning and processing transportation activities.

    It organizes the responsibilities in a company, e.g. according to shipment type, mode of transport or regional departments.

    <b>Integration</b>

    The shipping point is assigned to a plant.

    Loading points are assigned to shipping points.

    Thanks,

    Vinay
