TCode:FS00SAP Easy Access – Financial – General Ledger – Master Records – Accounting – Accounting Individual – Processing Centrally

TCode:TK11Logistics – Master data – Transportation – Shipment cost – Price

1. The system determines the pricing procedure for the shipment cost item-using

TCode:VL01NWith reference the sales order create a delivery using TCode – VL01N and pick the goods.

TCode:VT01NAfter the status of the delivery is open for transportation planning, it is possible to create a shipment document to schedule the transportation.Now create a shipment using TCode – VT01N (SAP Easy Access – Logistics – Logistic Execution – Transportation – Transportation Planning – Create – Single document)and assign the delivery to the shipment document. Make sure to enter the carrier and other details before performing the transportation planning and execution.After the deliveries are scheduled by shipment and the shipment is executed, now it is time to maintain and close the shipment document in order to record all relative information and ready for the shipment cost settlement.So, save the shipment document and PGI for the delivery would be done automatically.

A shipment represents a physical goods movement between two or more locations.

For the system to create a shipment, shipping-relevant deliveries must exist.

You use Transportation Planning to group pending deliveries into shipments and then to perform the shipments.

The outbound delivery documents contain routes that the system calculates in route determination, and a transportation planning date for the delivery.

Dynamic transportation planningis responsible for grouping together outbound deliveries into shipments that have at least the same route, visit plan type and the same transportation planning date.The following restrictions can be taken into account for a shipment in Dynamic Transportation Planning:

TCode:VI01(SAP Easy Access – Logistics – Logistic Execution – Transportation – Shipment cost – Create – Single documentAfter creation of shipment cost doc. The document is ready settling the Shipment cost.

Step 3.1.Use TCode VI02, enter shipment cost no. and press enter.Step 3.2.Then go to Overview screen Freight cost items, Select the line item and double click it.Step 3.3.Go as main menu: Item – Acc. assignment, you enter G/L acc. and cost center to which the transportation cost will be posted.On the Standard change, details – Freight cost items screen, then check the check box Transfer, which means you will transfer the relative transportation cost to FI/CO, in this case, the system should determined which Purchase Order will used to settle the cost, so after you check the Transfer check box.Press save button on the current screen.

After the shipment cost settled in shipment cost document, it has the following affects:

It creates a service entry sheet that refers to the purchase order determined.

It posts acceptance of services performed.

It creates an accounting document for the accruals.

Further subsequent documents are created in FI.

Generally process is1) VL01N2) VT013) VL02N – PGI4) VI015) ML81N – Service Entry Sheet6) MIRO – Invoice Verification

Diagrammatic Representation of SD Transportation Process Flow

You cannot carry out transportation planning or creation of shipment after the goods issue has been executed. Once goods issue is done it means that the material has left your premises so there is no need for a transportation planning after it.

In case you need carry out the shipment documents at the end of the day you could just create the delivery documents during the day and at end of the day create the shipment documents and the goods issue

The statement below is not fully true:You cannot carry out transportation planning or creation of shipment after the goods issue has been executed. Once goods issue is done it means that the material has left your premises so there is no need for a transportation planning after it.In case you need carry out the shipment documents at the end of the day you could just create the delivery documents during the day and at end of the day create the shipment documents and the goods issueFor multiple leg transportation (eg. land-ocean-land) we might want to create transportation chain by creating separate shipment for each leg. Then the last leg transport planning starts much later than the actual goods issue of the delivery from the first leg. So there are situations when shipment creation happens only after goods issue.

Hi, I need FB01 T code, process details. But I could not find correct information. Please provide correctly.
