Delivery date and transit time



we have such a problem that we want to model vendor delivery transportation time in Purchase order and also in MRP run.

That is, vendor confirms delivery date, but that date is that when goods are at vendor premises ready for delivery.

So there is several days delivery time in between until goods are really in our premises.

And our planner orders transportation from third-party and only then we know what is the real delivery date.

SAP's Planned delivery time contains both (making of goods by vendor and transport) and thus it not suitable for our purposes due the fact that vendor is not responsible for transportation.

Could you help and tell is it somehow possible to set transit time separately to purchase order? So that we have delivery date for vendor and another delivery date for transportation and that date is relevant for materials planning??

In that way we could plan our purchasing more accurately.

Thank you in advance.
