Transport Transfer between vendors

Hi gurus,

we have next scenario: we have stock subcontracting in vendor A. We need to do manipulate this stock in vendor B, but it's necessary to transport stock from vendor A to vendor B. What is the best possibility to do it? The responsible to transport this stock is vendor A.

Thank you, I will give puints!

    Hi Daniel,

    Is your individulal sub-contractors have been treated as a seperate storage location attached to any of your plants?

      -- Only exists stock subcontract associated to vendor A and vendor B. Is not a external storage location

    """Hi,

    1.

    If subcontractors are using the same components, you cannot transfer the from one subcontractor's special stock to the other's (standard SAP).

    2.

    If subcontractor1's output (F-30 material) is the input (component) of subcontractor2, you can solve this by specifying subcontractor2 on the delivery address tab of subcontractor1's PO. The goods will arrive to subcontractor2 by mvt 101 + 'O'.""

    -- The second case is not posible. Is not a sequential process. When Vendor A finish his manipulation shouldn't transfer stock to Vendor B until CUSTOMER says it. Can be a lot of days between two steps.

    The first case I don't understand. Can you tell me more please?

      Hi,

      I repeat, this solution is not possible. When sc-vendor 1 finish material 1, the destiny of this material is not sc-vendor2 always, maybe is sc-vendor3 or sc-vendor4, etc... It's independent things. When you create purchase order for sc-vendor 1, user doesn't know what sc-vendorX will be next step.

    Hello Daniel

    I feel the second option given by Csaba is the best to map your scenario.

    ie go for the delivery address of the Vendor B in the subcontracting PO for Vendor A.

    You have to just get in touch with the vendor B and enter the GR with movement type 101-O once the vendor B receives the materials from vendor A.

    Hi,

    In that case you will need to do the transfer in two steps, first do a MB1B 542 for vendor A and then do a new issue using MB1B 541 to vendor B,

    Transportation charges if any, will need to be met with a direct FI posting.

    Regards

    Hey Daniel,

    From what i think, the only solution is to enter the GR 101 for the F-30 from the vendor 1 and then to issue it to vendor 2 or 3 or 4 by another document with 541.

    No need to receive the physical stock.Once when u get the information about the second vendor and when the stock is is going to be moved, make the receipt for the F-30 material and do the transfer posting simultaneously.

    Regards
