Pricing Procedure in Delivery

Hi,

<b>Background</b>

We have decided not to use the Transportation functionality of SAP (Shipment document, shipment cost document etc) to calculate the freight costs of deliveries due to the difficulties in maintaining the zip code to zip code prices for each carrier (UPS, DHL).

Therefore, we have decided to capture the freight costs in the delivery itself in the form of an interface from a 3rd party system (yet to be decided).

<b>My question</b>

Can I maintain a seperate pricing procedure in the delivery? If so, how do I copy the condition types from the delivery into the billing document? The billing document should contain condition types from both the pricing procedures i.e. delivery and sales order.

Is it recommended to have a seperate pricing procedure in the delivery?

Any help will be very much appreciated and duly rewarded.

Thanks

Chandu

    You can create a freight price condition (category F) and create a Price Procedure with this included.

    Then you create copy control Delivery - Billing Document with Price Source 'E'

    This can allow the freight to be entered on the delivery and it will flow to Billing

      Hi Rajan,

      If I have understood your 1st question correctly, I have created 2 seperate pricing procedures for order and delivery. I have created the pricing procedure in delivery similar to the way you do for sales order.

      Coming to your 2nd question on how it helps, I'm still brainstorming if a seperate procedure is required in delivery. My idea of creating a seperate one was to maintain the freight related condition types only in the delivery, so that the condition types defined in the sales order would not be seen.

      I'm adding freight charges at the time of delivery because the weight of the package would be known only at the time of the delivery. I would be developing interfaces to calculate the freight charges using a 3rd party tool which is yet to be determined. The freight charges would have to be calculated dynamically.

      If you have any suggestions, please feel free to share.

      Thanks
