How to handle a Customer Plants with same Physical Address


We have customers that have multiple plants in the same physical address. I need to be able to ship to the physical address but in va03 I also need to tell which lines are for which plant. So my question is how is best to handle this?

Here are the options I can think of.

1) Each customer plant will be its own ship to even though they would be the same physical address and contact information.

2) Create a Partner that will hold each plant that will be attached to the ship to. This would work similar to Manufacture and Manufacture Plant in Purchasing. Then this customer plant partner would be attached to the sales order line in addition to ship to.

3) Use Option 2 but figure out what SAP standard partner for customer plant is.

Does anybody have better ideas?

Which one is the most appropriate to do?
