Sap SD-TM integration

Hi SAP gurus,

I am in a project where SAP ERP and SAP TM (Transportation Management) are being implemented. As I was looking for documentation about SAP ERP and TMS integration, I found that TM could create SD billing documents based on a forwarding order. However, in our scenario it would not be acceptable to have one SD invoice for each transport made by TM. Our requirement would be to present only one invoice to the customer with certain services (managed within the ERP) and other items which in fact need TM. For these last items, we would need to have the freight in TM and transfered to ERP.

Could this be achieved in s standard way?

Any link to relevant documentation would be highly appreciated.


Thanks & regards,

Max..

    From your post, it is not clear what exactly your requirement is.

    I could see two requirements here

    1. One is to fetch the freight and service charges to billing and
    2. second is to generate one billing document against a sale order

    If my understanding is correct, as you are aware, whatever condition types you set in your pricing procedure for your sale order and billing, based on that and condition records, system would fetch the value to billing document. Having said that if you have a separate condition types in T_08 and those values to be fetched to billing, then, you need to go for user exit

    Dear Maximiliano,

    As far as I understand from your question you are running a LSP scenario, so no OTR/DTR's are involved, only FWO's. In the SAP documentation I found this sentence":

    "You can create an individual FWSD for one FWO or a collective FWSD for multiple FWOs. You can review the FWOs from your personal worklist or in the Forwarding Order Management Overview or Forwarding Settlement Overview. The system automatically creates the FWSD based on the data in the FWOs and calculates the transportation charges."

    I think there are also options in the Flexible creation op FWSD:

    (under Forwarding Settlement you can also find the quoted sentence)

    With kind regards,

    • Dear Maximiliano,

      Sorry but I don't fully understand your requirement. You are aware of the fact that FWO's in TM can also contain Service items and be invoiced?(e.g. Fumigation of a container). I think it is also possible to create for example a separate FWO type with only services.

      However as a LSP there might be one good reason to do the sales of services on the ECCside and that is the third-part sales order, for example if your shipper wants make use of your contract with a cleaning company to clean once in a while a container for them. SAP TM doesn't support this process. The functionality of creation a service item in a forwarding order(TRQ object) and creation a service order(TOR Object) which will be invoiced by your vendor are completely separated, there is no such thing as a service unit(like freight unit).

      I have limited knowledge on ECC FI module so I Can't tell you how to merge several billing documents.

      With kind regards,

      Benno Mateman

    Hi Max,

    You can try what Benno is suggesting. You can try creating a collective Forwarding settlement document per customer per month / fortnight or any period as per customer requirement.

    Apart from that if the requirement needs collection of charges in a separate system and do some advanced processing, you can also evaluate Hybris Billing functionality.
