    Hi Pavan,

    The transportation planning point consists of a group of employees responsible for organizing transportation activities. Each shipment is assigned to a specific transportation planning point for transportation planning and shipment completion. You must define the various transportation planning points used in your organization in Customizing for Corporate Structure before they can be used to perform transportation functions. You can define this organizational unit according to your company’s needs, for example, according to geographical location or mode of transport.

    The transportation planning point is assigned to a company code, but is otherwise independent of other organizational units.

    The shipping point can be proposed automatically during order processing depending on the plant, loading group and shipping condition.

    A shipping point has an address.

    The shipping point is used as a selection criterion for lists of deliveries and the work list deliveries.

    The shipping point is used as a selection criterion for processing deliveries like printing, picking or goods issue.

    Hi

    Diff bet shipping point and trans pl point.

    The shipping point is the top level in the organization for shipping.

    A shipping point can be allocated to several plants.

    A shipping point can be divided into several loading points.

    A delivery is always initiated from exactly one shipping point. Thus, all items of a delivery belong to one shipping point. Groups of deliveries also belong to exactly one shipping point.

    You can influence delivery scheduling via allocation to departure zones.

    The shipping point can be proposed automatically during order processing depending on the plant, loading group and shipping condition.

    In addition to the above:

    Shpiing Point is used to create deliveries that includes creating outbound deliveries, picking, packing, and posting goods issue. The delivery document forms the basis for all delivery activities.

    Transportation planning point is for creating shipments. After creating the deliveries and invoice, the subsequent functions of carrying the deliveries to customer is called shipments and done by Transportation planning point. Transportation planning point is assigned only to company code. Shipments are used to carry the deliveries to the customer based on the route determination. Deliveries will be combined into shipments based on critera like same route, shipp to party etc.

    The functions of shipment documents include:

    mode of transport, service agents, routes and shiment stages, shiment types, planning and monitoring deadlines. The shipment document forms the basis for shipment cost document, and these expenses has to be settled with service agent through payables.

    hope this helps.
