leg determination in shipment

hi all,

i am creating a shipment document for two deliveries. the delivery detailes are as follows

for delivery 1, shipping point A is in germany AND ROUTE is AA and ship to party is in germany.

for delivery 2, shipping point B is in germany and route is BB and ship to party is in america.

now iam using collective shipment type and in the config of shipment type, the leg indicator is "legs determined according

to departure point and intineray " and leg indicator is "direct leg "

now i have created the shipment and the stages are determined as follows :-

stage 1 from shipping point A in germany to shipping point B in germany (system shows this as preliminary leg)

stage 2 from shipping point B to ship to party in germany (system shows this as main leg )

stage 3 from shp to party in germany to ship to party in america. (system shows this as subsequent leg)

my questions are as follows :-

1) how does the systen determines the itinerary. that is, what caused system to first select shipping point A and then

shipping point B for stage 1 in shipment document and why not first shipping point B and then shiiping point A ?

2) Why did the system chose ship to party in germany in stage 2 and why not ship to party in america for stage 2 ?

regds

    Hi Pamela,

    How the system determines the leg for a shipment depends on the leg categories you defined in your shipment type.

    Refer to the below for the different categories available:

    Refer to the below for the automatic leg determination process flow:

    Hope the above helps.

    Thanks.

    Hi,

    You wrote that you set up the leg determination "legs determined according to departure point and intineray ".

    So first of all you have to look into the intinereay, that means which sequence of ship to parties you have. In your case it is first customer A (in Germany), then customer B (in America). This sequence is coming from the sequence of deliveries (which you see on the screen "shipments and deliveries").

    The departure points are in the reverse sequence of intineray, that means you load first what you unload last.

    The other "direct leg" settings means just that you have one shipment doc only, no other for preliminary / subsequent leg.

    Best regards

    Juergen
