Shipping cost determination in SD

Former Member

Hi All,

We have an issue where, the shipment cost is calculated based on the total weight of the materials in Delivery document.( weight involved for packing is not considered)

But the requirement is that the shipment cost should be calculated based on the gross weight of materials, including the weight involved for packing.

Kindly let me know, how to achieve this?

Is there any user exit/Badi for the same?

Rgs,

Priya

Please clarify what research / analysis have you conducted before posting the question. Also have you reached to an SD expert on this? Maybe this could be achieved through configuration?

Thank you.

Hi

Jelena is right, you have functionality available for doing it and a SAP SD Consultant could help you. Please, see the document "Inbound Transportation in Logistics Execution" by Manikanda ilango in this link: http://scn.sap.com/docs/DOC-2147.

Although it is for inbound delivery, it's the same for outbound delivery. The issue is create a shipment and a shipment cost, and you require a delivery document. Create a packaging linked to the delivery and you can set a weight (or how to convert volumes to weights when the weight is lower some level).

I hope this helps you

Regards

Eduardo

Hi Priya,

Can you please let us know where you are doing packing in shipment? Do gross weight of delivery consider weight of packing?

Hi Neeraj,

Packing is done in Delivery itself,

Gross weight of delivery does not considering the weight of packaging.

But in Shipment the overall weight ( Gross weight + Packaging weight) is getting captured.

Priya,

in this case your gross weigh of delivery should indicate the weight of packing.? what is the weight of your handling unit? do Handing unit or packing unit in delivery has weight of Item + Packing material weight?

You need to make system to consider packing weight in delivery. if you want to prportionale shipment cosed based ongross delivery weight.

Hi Neeraj,

Yes, if the system considers the weight of packing also in delivery, then the problem would be solved.

Right now, it is considering only the weight  of material, without the packing weight.

Kindly give me the clue, how to achieve this?

Thnx,

Priya

Priya,

Looks like it is master data issue.

Do your packing material master data maintained for weight and other details. Please check and correct if weight of packing material missing there.

Please check below SAP note, This note has good info on Delivery weight:

Note 589828 - Weight, volume in the shipment

You may use function module " SD_DELIVERY_VIEW " to get information on total packing weight.

Hope this info will help you.
