    Dear Yogesh,

    What are the integration points between both of them.

    Transportation is one of the sub module in the Logistics execution.

    -->When you create shipment document you need to assign the delivery documents in the shipment document.

    -->Based on the settings you can do the PGI for the deliveries while saving shipminent document.

    -->You can able to create invoice while saving shipment document.

    is billing functionality available in Transportation management.

    Not exactly billing functionality it is settlement process.

    You can settle the service cost i.e shipment cost to the service agent or forwarding agent in the transportation.

    Shipment costs can be a considerable cost factor. For this reason, they are often not included in the material price, but are billed separately by the shipper to the customer during billing.

    You can bill the customer with the actual shipment costs, which include technical aspects such as distances, tariff zones, means-of-transport types, type and number of pallets.

    Prerequisites

    In Customizing, the following settings are required so that shipment costs that are not calculated in the shipment cost document can be billed to the customer in the customer billing document.

    In addition to the condition types that already exist, you must create condition types of the same name in the pricing procedure for shipment cost calculation and in the pricing procedure for billing price determination. In the pricing procedure for shipment cost calculation, you can mark the condition types as statistical values in order not to influence the shipment cost calculation. To do this, choose the following path in Customizing Logistics Execution ® Transportation ® Shipment costs ® Pricing ® Pricing control ® Define and assign pricing procedures.

    In the pricing procedure for billing price determination, these condition types must be marked manually. To do this, choose the following path in Customizing Logistics Execution ® Basic functions ® Pricing ® Pricing control ® Define and assign pricing procedures ® Maintain pricing procedure.

    For the billing price procedure, the indicator Specific procedure must be selected so that the condition class and the statistical indicator are re-determined and are not copied from the shipment cost pricing procedure.

    Also, you must specify the price source "shipment costs" at the item level for copying control for billing documents. For this purpose, choose the following path in the Implementation Guide: Logistics Execution ® Billing ® Billing documents ® Maintain copying control for billing documents ® Copying Control: Delivery document to billing document, and specify the price source F for shipment costs for the respective billing and delivery types for the respective item.

    Features

    The shipment costs that are billed to the customer are based on the actual shipment costs that were calculated in transportation and shipment costing for settlement with the forwarding agent. The shipment costs appear as an additional entry in the customer billing document. It is possible to use all the calculation options that are available in the shipment cost document for settlement of costs with the service provider. Shipment costs that were calculated in the shipment cost document on the basis of delivery items are assigned directly to the respective billing document item. Costs that were calculated using a different calculation base, for example, on the basis of shipment cost items, are allocated to the billing document items according to the proportionate weight of the delivery items.

    A billing document whose copying control is set in Customizing so that the shipment costs are part of the billing document can only be created when the shipment costs have been calculated and billed fully.

    Note:-

    Since a delivery for which the billing document is to be created can be part of several shipments (for example, in the case of a transportation chain), it can happen that several shipment cost documents need to be calculated so that the billing document itself can at all be created.

    Also, you should be aware that the system first checks the shipment cost calculation status in the shipment document. If both the header and the leg of the respective shipment type are marked in Customizing as being relevant for shipment costs, the shipment costs calculation status at the header level and at the stage level must be completely processed.

    I hope this will help you,

    Regards,

    Murali.

    Hi Yogesh

    1. You can integrate SAP TM with ERP using IDocs. SAP TM does not have billing functionality, however it creates business object called - CFIR Customer Freight Invoice Request which needs to be sent to ERP for billing purpose

    2. In ERP, the SD module takes inputs from this CFIR object of TM and creates Billing document
