    Dear Vinu,

    IMG path to Route determination

    IMG>Logistics Execution>Shipping>Basic shipping functions-->Routes

    -->Define Transportation Zones

    -->Maintain Country And Transportation Zone For Shipping Point

    -->Define Transportation Groups

    -->Define Weight Groups

    -->Maintain Route Determination

    -->Define New Route Determination By Delivery Type

    Route will get determine through this combination

    Depature country ZoneDestination country ZoneShipping conditions+Transportation Zone->Route

    or

    Depature country ZoneDestination country ZoneShipping conditionsTransportation ZoneWeight group-->Route

    As per the standard process Route will get determine in the sales order it self based on the above cobination,This route will copied to the delivery or you have new route determination while creation of delivery.

    You can copy the delivery route automatically to the shipment document through maintaining Routine in the shipment document detail screen.

    Go to 0VTK (ZeroVTK) then select your shipment type then go in to the detail screen here you maintain Copy Routine field as 2-Route now system will copy the delivery route to the shipment document while creating.(under Proposal Tab)

    I don't think route will get determine directly in the shipment document with out determination at delivery level.

    I hope this will help you,

    Regards,

    Murali.

      Hi Vinu,

      The route will first determine in sales order automatically from the following factors:

      1. Country/Departure zone from Shipping point

      2. Shipping condition (Either from Sales document or from the customer master data)

      3. Transportation Group in material master

      4. Transportation zone of the Ship-to party

      And next based on weight group it will trigger the route in delivery document.

      In shipment document it will consider the route in delivery document and it will pick this route automatically into shipment document.

      Regards,

      hari Challa.

    HI,

    Following are the factors system consider for determing the route automatically in the sales order:

    1. Departure zone from Shipping point

    2. Shipping condition (Either from Sales document or from the customer master data)

    3. Transportation Group

    4. Transportation zone of the Ship-to customer

    5. Weight group is being used, then weight group at delivery level...

    Determination can be done in the IMG - Sales & Distribution - Basic functions - Routes - Route determination. Same can be done under Logistcs execution - Transporation - Basic transportation functions - Routes

    Hope this will be useful....

    Hi there,

    Route determined in the shipment doc is through standard process:

    Dep zone of the shipping point + T-zone of the ship-to + shipping condition + transportation grp

    Dep zone of shipping point: from the sales order / delivery

    T-zone ship-to: from VD03

    shipping condition: from sales area data --> shipping of VD03.

    transportation grp: from MM02 --> Sales: general / plant

    Since we always refer shipment doc from a delivery, routes get copied from the delivery.

    Regards,

    Sivanand
