Shipping output, export order, using freight forwarder


We are looking for a good way to handle an export situation. We have a manufacturing plant in Spain filling an order for a Russian customer. The goods are delivered from the plant to a freight-forwarder located in the EU, who then gets the goods to the Russian ship-to customer.

We need the ship-to partner on the sales order and invoice to be the Russian customer, since that keeps the VAT correct. But we need the shipping documents to show that the goods deliver to the freight forwarder.

Clearly we need the freight forwarder to be a partner in the process. Is there a partner function and shipping output type(s) that support this concept in the standard system?
