Cross company consignment sales

Hello Gurus,

I am trying map a business process that would be a cross company consignment sale.

Example, company A plant A and company B plant B.

Customer A orders to company A a fill-up on plant A. Goods have to be shipped from Plant B owned by company B.

I read that can’t be done through usual cross company sales as a stock transfer must occur before moving stock to consignment (note that only consignment stock exists on plant A).

We tried several ways to do it like ipo sales order generating sto or third party order, but each time we ended up with developpment.

What would be the most standard process to cover that business requirement ? Are the Ways described above corrects or would you recommand another way.

    Not possible to club both the process (consignment sales and intercompany process). If the company code differs for both the plants, then what you can do is follow Inter Company STO process through which the delivering plant can receive the goods from the other plant and follow the normal Consignment fill-up process.

      Hello,

      Thanks for this option. It would required to maintain vendor address for ship-to in master data or input it directly in the flow.

      We have other constraints such as product allocation check during fill-up. If we transfer first STO then do the fill-up, we will biase the product allocation as we will possibly transfer stock while product allocation do not allow it.

      It seems difficult not to have specific developpment to automatize the process for cross company sales with customer consignment.

      We will probably go for a standard cross company sales but deactivating intercompany invoicing and replace it with specific idoc to create a STO + a stock movement to put stock in customer consignment.

      Thanks for the help, very interesting approach.
