    Route determination is used to determine which route to use for shipping the goods to the customer.

    This route can have a lot of specifications (duration, shipping type, calendar, ...).

    All route data can be found in table TVRO, while the determination data can be foudn in tables TROIZ and TROLZ.

    A route is determination is based on Departure country, Departure zone, Shipping conditions, Transportation Group, Country of destination, Transportation zone to which the goods are to be delivered and weight group (optional).

    Departure country and departure zone are decalred on shipping point level.

    Transportation group on material level.

    Shipping conditions, country of destination and transportation zone to which the goods are to be delivered on customer level.

    Hope this explains.

    Regards,

    Danny

    Hi..

    Route can be determined in sales order with the help of 5 parameters: depart country, shipping conditions in customer master record, transportation group in material master, destination country, and weight group.

    Weight group plays a vital role. The purpose of route detrmination is like in scenario's where company will ship goods to the customer in various ways not only that it has optional of having n number of routes select the best one & based on his customer priority (time & money.) for sending samples company will go for air, for delivering ordered goods it can go for different mode of transportation & routes.

    Configuration part:

    SPRO > LE - Shipping - Basic shipping functions Routes

    Define Routes:

    Define mode of transportation

    Define shipping types.

    Asssign shipping types to mode of transportation.

    Define Routes and Stages

    Maintain Stages For All Routes

    Route Determination:

    Define Transportation Zones

    Maintain Country And Transportation Zone For Shipping Point

    Define Transportation Groups

    Define Weight Groups

    Maintain Route Determination in the combination of

    a) Departure country/Departure Zone - maintained in shipping point configuration

    b) Shipping condition from the sales order

    c) Transportation planning group mantained in General/Plant view of material master.

    d) Destination country/Transportation zone maintained in General view -Address of Customer master of Ship to Party

    Hi Mohammed...

    In the sales order, the route determination is dependent upon the following factors: Country of departure/departure zone Country of destination/receiving zone Shipping conditions Transportation group The above list plus the weight group factor make up the factors relevant for determining the delivery route determination.

    You can predefine weight groups to suit your own business. For each group you specify the maximum weight allowed (for example, up to 10 tons). During delivery processing, the system uses the weight group as additional information for automatic route determination.

    If a route was proposed during sales order processing, weight information available at shipping time may result in the system proposing a new, more suitable route.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks,

    Safeer Rahman

    hi

    Route Determination

    · Route may consist of different stages and different transportation connection

    points or legs.

    · The material can be transported from source to destination by using different

    modes of transports with different shipment types.

    · Route can be determined for a line item in the sales order.

    · Route can be re-determined at delivery document header level by taking u201CWeight

    Groupu201D into consideration.

    · Each line item in the sales document will have its own route, each line item route

    will be copied to delivery document header.

    Configuration Settings:

    1. Define Modes of Transport:

    Ex.: Road, Train etc.

    Menu Path: IMG / Sales and Distribution / Basic Functions / Routes / Define

    Routes / Define Modes of Transports.

    Here we create our own modes of transport and assign the shipping types

    2. Define Shipping Types:

    Menu Path: IMG / Sales and Distribution / Basic Functions / Routes / Define

    Routes / Define Shipping Types

    Here we assign modes of transport to the shipping types

    3. Define Transportation Connection Points:

    Menu Path: Menu Path: IMG / Sales and Distribution / Basic Functions / Routes /

    Define Routes / Define Transportation Connection Points

    · Transportation Connection Point can be a Airport, Border crossing or a

    railway station.

    · Transportation connection point is a source or a destination.

    4. Define Routes and Stages:

    Menu Path: Menu Path: IMG / Sales and Distribution / Basic Functions / Routes /

    Define Routes / Define Routes and Stages

    Choose an existing route, copy and create our own route SUZ001

    Enter the data as shown

    If you want to create a service agent, use T. Code: V-11

    Specify Company Code and Account Group = 0005 u2013 Forwarding Agent, enter

    the relevant data as required.

    Also enter rest of the information as required seen in the screen shot.

    : It is a pre-requisite for transportation for this route.

    Save it. Highlight our Route and click on u201CRoute Stagesu201D. Following screen will

    appear. Go to u201CNew Entriesu201D and enter the data as shown.

    Leg Indicator:

    There are 5 types of legs:

    · Preliminary Leg

    · Main Leg

    · Direct Leg

    · Return Leg

    · Subsequent Leg

    : It is a pre-requisite for calculating shipment cost for this particular

    stage by using SDFC00 pricing procedure.

    Until now what we did was a pre-requisite for the route determination. Now let us do the

    route determination.

    Route Determination:

    5. Define Transportation Zone:

    Menu Path: Menu Path: IMG / Sales and Distribution / Basic Functions / Routes /

    Route Determination / Define Transportation Zones

    Transportation Zone represents Ship-to Party region or Vendor region. System

    uses transportation zone as one of the factor to determine the route for a line item

    in the sales order.

    We go to the u201Cnew entriesu201D and define transportation zone for country.

    Then we go to the Customer Master Data in XD01 / XD02 and assign

    Transportation Zone in the Address tab of the General Data Section.

    6. Maintain Country and Transportation Zone for Shipping Point:

    Menu Path: Menu Path: IMG / Sales and Distribution / Basic Functions / Routes /

    Route Determination / Maintain Country and Transportation Zone for Shipping Point

    7. Define Transportation Group: We can define Transportation Group if it is not

    available according to our requirements

    8. Define Weight Group: We can define Weight group if is not available according

    to our requirements

    9. Maintain Route Determination:

    Menu Path: Menu Path: IMG / Sales and Distribution / Basic Functions / Routes /

    Route Determination / Maintain Route Determination

    Route Determination is done for the line item by taking 4 factors in to considerations

    1. Country of Departure Zone

    2. Country of Destination Zone

    3. Shipping Conditions (From Sales Document Header)

    4. Transportation group (From Material Master)

    Go to u201Cnew entriesu2019 and enter the data as shown

    Select the route and the double click on the u201CRoute Determination Without Weight

    Groupu201D. Go to u201Cnew entriesu201D and enter the following data

    Here SC u2013 Shipping Conditions (01 - Standard)

    TGroup u2013 Transportation group (0004 u2013 on Train)

    Proposed Route u2013 SUZ001 (Our Route)

    Save it and create order in VA01, Go to Shipping Tab in the item level data and Check

    for the entry of the route determination

    regards
