Stock transport of Milk through Tankers and its costs transfer in toto


Hi Experts, We have a peculiar situation of goods transport in the Milk industry. The Chilled Milk is being sent in the Milk Tankers to the Dairies where the Milk Products are manufactured. The tankers have compartments and there is lot of chance that there will be mixing of milk two chilling centers since the Dairy wants to minimise the cost of transport. When the tanker arrives at the Dairies, it is being weighed and stored in one Silo. Here, there shall be excess or shortage of Milk when compared to the Milk sent by the Chilling Centers. This scenario has to be mapped first through Stock transfer. Further, the cost incurred at the Chilling centers should be transferred alongwith the stock transfer to the Dairies. Over and above, Material Ledger with actual costing has been activated in this case. Experts in big Dairy Industry like Fonterra, Amul , Vijaya, Heritage, etc and other Industry like OIl and Gas, can pitch in with their experience of how they tackled and mapped in SAP. Split valuation based on batch shall be there to carry the costs batchwise upto its mixing in Silo at Dairy. Regards,
