    1. The system determines the pricing procedure for the shipment cost item-using transportation planning point, service agent and shipment cost item category

    2. Calculation Basis

    3. Condition Record

    4. Access sequence.

    For the sales order, create a delivery using VL01N and pick the goods. Now create a shipment using VT01N and assign the delivery to the shipment document. Make sure to enter the carrier and other details before performing the transportation planning and execution. Save the shipment document and PGI for the delivery would be done automatically.

    A shipment represents a physical goods movement between two or more locations.

    For the system to create a shipment, shipping-relevant deliveries must exist.

    You use Transportation Planning to group pending deliveries into shipments and then to perform the shipments.

    The outbound delivery documents contain routes that the system calculates in route determination, and a transportation planning date for the delivery.

    Dynamic transportation planning is responsible for grouping together outbound deliveries into shipments that have at least the same route, visit plan type and the same transportation planning date.

    The following restrictions can be taken into account for a shipment in Dynamic Transportation Planning:

    u2022 Weight

    u2022 Volume

    u2022 Variable capacity

    u2022 Number of stops

    u2022 Maximum duration

    u2022 Loading units

    Create Shipment Document

    Use

    After the status of the delivery is open for transportation planning, it is possible to create a shipment document to schedule the transportation.

    On the Standard change, details u2013 Freight cost items screen, then check the check box u201CTransferu201D, which means you will transfer the relative transportation cost to FI/CO, in this case, the system should determined which Purchase Order will used to settle the cost, so after you check the u201CTransferu201D check box.

    Press save button on the current screen.

    Shipment cost settlement and documents:

    Use

    After the shipment cost settled in shipment cost document, it has the following affects:

    It creates a service entry sheet that refers to the purchase order determined.

    It posts acceptance of services performed.

    It creates an accounting document for the accruals.

    Further subsequent documents are created in FI.

    Generally process is-

    1) VL01N

    2) VT01

    3) VL02N - PGI

    4) VI01

    5) ML81N u2013 Service Entry Sheet

    6) MIRO u2013 Invoice Verification

    Shipping docs (VT01) are created before PGI...

    You cannot carry out transportation planning or creation of shipment after the goods issue has been executed. Once goods issue is done it means that the material has left your premises so there is no need for a transportation planning after it.

    In case you need carry out the shipment documents at the end of the day you could just create the delivery documents during the day and at end of the day create the shipment documents and the goods issue.
