Hello,

What is be the best approach when we want to create pure ship-to party customers in BP?

We have many ship-to in old customer master solution which now will be converted to BP

There is no SAP standard BP-role for ship-to, but is the recommended way to do this to create a custom BP-role and then assign it to the currently used account group for the ship-to?

Hi gunnar.aroen,
In few projects I noticed it was handled using the same role for both customer and ship-to party and those were distinguished using different BP Types (BUT000-BPKIND) but I'm also curious if that is the so called "best practice".

Basically we dont want to create a separate role for Ship to.

The solution is One Role FLCU01, One Grouping for all partners like Sold to, Ship to, Bill to and Payer.

Grouping is linked with number range of BP and CVI.

Based on the grouping you have flexibility to choose the Account group as 0001 Sold-to party, 0002 Goods recipient, 0003 Payer and 0004 Bill to party and based on the account group the field and tab views gets changed.

Thanks,

The solution was to create a new grouping for ship-to.

Then this grouping is assigned to the customer account group for ship-to.

So you can create both ship to and sold to in the role customer, no need to new role for that, it is all controlled by the grouping

HI,

Just wanted to add this approach is what it seems to be recommended by SAP in note 2757271 - How to create a Ship-to customer in SAP S/4HANA Cloud.

Hello Gar,

In SAP S/4 Hana - we have CRM002 as a pre-delivered standard role for ShipTo party. You still need to create a Business Partner record and ShipTo party together. Of course, you can come up with a custom role as well for any additional requirements/deviations depending on your company business scenario.
