    Shipping point is the place where you ship your material (in case of material) or where you give your services (in case of service).

    It is determined using

    1) delivering plant

    2) Loading group

    3) Shipping condition

    I Hope this solves your question.

    If any further question regarding Shipping point please post

    Dear Laa,

    Shipping point

    Shipping point is an organizational unit in Logistics that performs shipping processing.

    The shipping point is the part of the company responsible for the type of shipping, the necessary shipping materials and the means of transport.

    Example

    Shipping points are a company mail depot or plant rail station.

    Please go through this SAP help link to know about Shipping point Determination.

    I hope it will help you,

    Regards,

    Murali.

    Dear Hoo Laa

    Shipping points are responsible for scheduling and processing deliveries to customers, as well as replenishment deliveries to your own warehouses.

    A delivery is always carried out by one shipping point only. The shipping point depends on the following criteria:

    - Delivering plant

    - Type of shipping (for example, train, truck)

    - Loading equipment necessary

    - A shipping point can be determined for each order item. How the shipping point is determined depends on three factors:

    - The shipping conditions from the customer master record (Shipping screen)

    For example, it might have been agreed with the customer that the goods are to be delivered as soon as possible.

    The loading group from the material master record (Sales/Plant Data screen)

    You could, for example, specify a loading group that defines that the goods must always be loaded with a crane or a forklift.

    - The delivering plant

    This plant is determined per order item either from the customer master record or from the material master record. However, you can also enter it manually for each order item.

    thanks
