Route

I'm trying to configure route determination, and i m aware that it depends on

Departure zone of the Shipping point in customisation, Shipping condition , Transportation Group ,Transportation zone and when it comes ot delivery we also take into account the weight groups. But i want to understand exactly when does the route get redetermined

1) At sales order level (when we change the customer and material)

2) At delivery level when we the shipto parties are different for the items?

3) Does the same route get copied in the shipment document or can can it be redetermined again based on the configuration in transportation. What is the logic behind this?

Can anyone let me know the exact logic behind the route redetermination(from a configuration and testing perspective). It would be really helpful if anyone could send any documents related to route determination.

Points would be rewarded.

Thanks,

Pranitha.

    Anju,

    1) At sales order level (when we change the customer and material)

    2) At delivery level when we the shipto parties are different for the items?

    Normally route gets determine in the sales order level Based on the key combination Depature Zone ,Destinatiin Zone ,Transportation group and shipping conditions.

    At sale order you can have different route for each item if the ship to party is differ.

    You mentioned that you also consider weight group in route determination and that weight group will consider at delivery level in this situation route will get determine at delivery level because there is weight group at the sales order level.

    3) Does the same route get copied in the shipment document or can can it be redetermined again based on the configuration in transportation. What is the logic behind this?

    There is no seperate route detrmination procedure for the shipment documents.

    At shipping level route determination and Route determination in the transportation are same if you do the settings at one place same settings will replect at two places.

    You can copy the route from delivery document to the shipment document through maintaining the routine in the shipment document detail screen.

    I hope this will help you,

    Regards,

    Murali.

    Hi

    Route is normally determined for each item in the sales document

    The automatic default value can be changed manually at alter date if you wish to have alternate routes

    System tries to determine a route for each and every item which has to be delivered

    Automatic Route determination is basically based on four parameters which you have mentioned about

    The route can be redetermined in delivery based on weight group

    Whether the route can be redeternied at delivery level is based on config of delivery type

    Regards
