SAP Warehousing Strategy S4 and beyond (WM, EWM)

Dear all,

I am struggling to fully and in detail understand the SAP Warehousing Strategy towards Year 2025 and beyond and would be glad to hear your inputs.

What I want to understand is the following (We have an ERP and a EWM System):


We want to outsource (for some warehouses) the Warehousing activities to 3PLs, but we want to have stock control and delivery control (inbound/outbound) in our ERP.

So, how can we integrate 3PL warehousing providers to our ERP or EWM System to be future proofed for S4?

  • In the past, as I understand this integration was via decentralized WM in ERP?
  • …and then IDOCs were transferred between ERP and the 3PL running the warehouse to control the stock and deliveries in the ERP system


What will happen with lean-WM (in ERP) in S4?

  • We have some LEAN-WM scenarios in our ERP, for small, unstructured warehouses, to be able to pack Handling Units.

I would appreciate some of your thoughts.

    Hello Marko!

    Regarding second question please check SAP Note 2269324. It contains document S4HANA-CompatibilityScopeMatrix-DETAIL.pdf as an attachement. There you will find info regarding SAP plans for WM in general and for WM within S/4HANA.

    Best Regards,

    Maxim Lebedev
