What is the reason to maintain multiple addresses for one storage location?

I noticed that in maintaining the storage location(tcode OX09), the system allows multiple addresses for one single storage location by entering the different number.

1. What is the business scenario applies here for multiple addresses for storage location?

2. How does the system determine which storage location address to be used?

Thank you in advance

  1. There is no specific thumb rule for this. If any Business wants to differentiate the stock based on certain parameters like Handling Unit materials in one location and non-handling unit materials in another location or Packaging and non-packaging materials and so on
  2. System will always default the first one and if you want to consider multiple addresses, you need to go with EXIT_SAPLMMDA_001 to add the required coding

Thank you for the answer.

1. In that case, would it be better to create another storage location? What's could be different from maintaining 2 addresses in one storage location.

2. Understood. Thanks.


1. It is not recommended to increase the enterprise structure objects unless there is no other way. It can lead to disadvantages like additional master data maintenance (material master etc.) and need to run the MRP for multiple storage locations ...
