    351 -

    1. This MvT brings stock of materials in transit and then receiving plant has to receive the stock of material via MvT 101.

    2. Its a 2-step stock transfer process.

    3. Stock Transport Order is pre-requiiste for this.

    4. Additionally, you can plan the delivery cost/freight in STPO if involved in stock transfer process and pay the same to a transsporter via MIRO.

    5. In case of excisable materails, you can generate the outgoing excise invoice based on the 351 Mat Doc in transaction J1IS.

    301 -

    1. 1-Step Stock Transfer Process

    2. No Tracking of Stock in Transit

    3. Not Possible to plant delivery cost/freight

    4. Not Possible to create exicse invoice

    Note: - Accounting Entry will remain same in the cases as following;

    Stock Account - Dr - Receiving Plant
    Stock Account - Cr - Supplying Plant

    To get more detail on the same, refer following link;

      thanks to all

      Difference between Movement types 301 and 351

      Movement type 301

      One step stock transfer between two plants

      Stocks can be posted only to unrestricted use stock

      Stock the receiving plant is updated immediately when they are issued

      Movement type 351

      Always with respect to a stock transport order

      Stocks can be posted at the receiving plant to unrestricted use stock, stock in Q inspection and blocked stock

      Once the stocks are issued at the issuing plant, these can be monitored at the receiving plant as stock in transit (Use tcode MB5T or in MMBE stock overview this stock appears as stock in transit)

      Entire process can be monitored through PO history

      goods receipt can be posted to the consumption

      STO is integrated with MRP. Purchase requisitions generated by MRP can be converted into stock transport orders
