EDI for Invoice Submission from Carrier in SAP TM

On TM Collaboration Portal, the carrier can access a list of freight orders that were completed by him but have not yet been invoiced. For one or a set of freight orders, he can create Invoice and submitted to the shipper. In SAP TM, Carrier invoice is created and this invoice can be verified automatically based on Predefined Tolerance. If tolerance check fails, dispute document will be created and can be handled using dispute management in TM. Once Invoice is successfully verified, it is sent to SAP ERP for Invoice posting.

But carrier is not interested to use TM Collaboration portal and he wants to send the same information by EDI message to SAP TM. Does SAP TM supports Invoice EDI communication with Carrier like Tendering process.

Hi Sunil,

Quick clarification though, if you are not intending to use collaboration portal to submit invoices to SAP TM why do you want to send the EDI Invoice (EDI 810) to SAP TM system. Since SAP TM system does not support any GL posting.

Even if the invoice is submitted from collaboration portal, the carrier invoice document created in SAP TM creates MIRO invoice to complete the posting in ECC. So you can directly use the standard IDOC available in ECC to post EDI 810.

When directly posting the MIRO invoice to ECC, you cannot leverage or take advantage of Dispute/resolution which is available from collaboration portal. But I would assume large vendors when submitting the invoice via EDI do not intend to dispute the amount since EDI in itself is an automatic process and they wouldn't want manual intervention. Hope this helps!
