We don't have sales order in our company and we need to do Stock Transfer Order (MM STO) between plants (1 in EU, the other 1 in the international water). Do we need to maintain Foreign Trade - Export in the material master data for this case? Is it Foreign Trade - import good enough? And seems Sales General/Plant must be created as well if Foreign Trade - Export is maintained.

Thank you!

I think you should ask this question internally.

SAP does not require any foreign trade data to do business. Reporting and declaration can be outsourced to service providers.

You are only required to enter FT data if you maintained your customizing to force entries for foreign trade data.

And this customizing is usually made based on the design which is itself based on business requirements.

It would be a poor design to maintain data that is nowhere used in a process.
