Error : Could not determine the country of physical location : GTS / TM Integration

Hello all, I am integrating freight orders created in SAP TM with SAP GTS for SPL Screening / Embargo checks.

I have done:

  • The basic configuration in SAP TM / GTS and the web service in SAP PI
  • Mapping of the business partner of the purchase organization in mapped to FTO in GTS
  • All other partners in the freight order already exist in GTS

I observe:

  • Freight Order created in TM is replicated correctly to the SAP PI layer
  • In transaction SXI_MONITOR on GTS system, the message is marked "Processed" without error (that means the integration layer has done the job well).
  • Following error in the SLG1 application log (see details in the attached file):

"Could not determine the country of the physical location."

  • The document reference (in the attached picture), 200000040 is not created in /SAPSLL/CUHD table in GTS. Question : Is there a separate table for CMPL01 (SPL / Embargo relevant document)?

Any hints to investigate further. Thanks in advance.

    Hello Grover,

    The error basically says the system is unable to find the physical country, this info is determined using the plant information you passed from the feeder. Please check if the plant to legal unit is mapped correctly in GTS.

    Quick update on this topic:

    • SAP gave a note (2632063) to implement for TM side correction. After the application of note, the error "Could not determine the country of the physical location" is no more reported in application log (SLG1).
    • But, the document is still not created in GTS. Surprising part (at least for me) is : document number for the TM document is generated (as per the numbering range of doc type CMPL01) and shown in application log (SLG1), but no record created in /SAPSLL/CUHD table
    • I have shared this observation to SAP

    Any hints further from anyone...

    • Now that the problem which I reported is solved, I am marking this topic as closed. In summary:

      • Country of physical location was not sent from TM (SAP Note: 2632063)
      • TM Document was not created in SAP GTS (SAP Note: 2491020)
      • TM Document was not shown in the "Display Documents" transactions (SAP Note : 2635557)

      Thanks a lot Derek for your support.
