Freight unit with non stock materials

Hi, does anyone know if SAP TM can create freight units for non-stock materials? My customer wants to track a transportation for ocean containers which has non-stock materials, as well as stock materials. Material master doesn't have the non-stock materials, but I want to create the freight units and freight orders - Is it possible?

Really appreciate if any suggestions.

    Dear Hironori,

    For sure this is possible, you just have to create a Forwarding Order(FWO) in TM. Go to Forwardig Order Managemet -> Forwardig Order -> Create Forwardig Order and take for example the standard delivered FWO type "FWO". Enter some pick-up and delivery dates/addresses and insert e.g. an item of the type product. In the details aera you can just enter an item Description(so without masterdata) and a gross weight(this is a minimum requirement to start the default FUBR), save the document and you have your Freight Unit. Ofcourse several variants are possible e.g. make hierarchy of items(product items in container item) or to create your own FUBR(create a container unit instead of a freight unit) or to create local master data for your products in TM.

    Good luck and kind regards,

    Benno Mateman
