Plant -Storage location Process

Hi Gurus

I have got 2 plants - plant1 and plant2 which are having their respective storage location. There is need to store tires in large qty.

It was decided by the client that management of stores would be done by 3rd party. i.e 3rd party will receive the tires (do GR) from vendor in their own warehouse. Then as per the requirement, 3rd party will transfer tires to plant1 and plant2. PO for tires will be raised by user from plant1 and plant2 on vendors, but GR will be done by 3rd party in their warehouse.

How to accomodate such process in SAP - we are thinking of creating plant3 for 3rd party.

Any better idea for these ?

    I think there will be 3 options:

    1) 3rd party GR will not be counted in SAP system , GR when 3rd party send goods to plant 1 or plant 2

    2) 3rd party GR will be count as status "GR blocked", then do GR when 3rd party send goods to plant1 or plant 2

    3) this is your suggestion: create plant3 when 3rd GR, then do stock transfer when 3rd party send goods to plant1 or plant 2

      as the 3rd party is doing the goods receipt means. it should be an entity in System..

      either 3rd party can be a plant..then u can do stock transfer from 3rd party ware house to plant 1 and 2..

      without plant...

      Although the 3rd party is providing the services of receiving the material from vendors and transporting to plant 1 and 2..

      so at the end of this proces.....plant 1 nd 2 can generate a service PO for 3rd party...and 3rd party will generate a invoice against that service purhase order..

      try this out..
