S/4HANA EWM in Third Party Logistics (3PL) operator

Hello all,

We are analyzing implement S/4HANA EWM in our company, a 3PL logistics operator.

We are already using other S/4HANA modules: FI, CO, PA, SD, MM and we would like to manage all warehouse operations within SAP.

We stock and move materials on behalf of our customer. The customer can be any kind of parts provider, manufacturer or trader. When such a customer requires service to hold its stock and transfer to a particular location, we provide the service.

In this 3PL scenario, it is necessary to register the customer goods value into inventory, with no impact in our company accounting. This information is necessary for example in order to take out insurance policy for customer goods.

The other key point in 3PL scenario is how invoicing the service to our costumer? Taking into account, in this kind of service we need to define a condition price for each client for the below concepts:

Inbound: price per pallet, per inbound, per container and container kind, per kg/Tn

Storage: price per storage day/pallet, m2/m3/Kg…, pallet kind, storage bins used, etc

Outbound: price per outbound, per pallet, per picking, per printing label box/pallet, etc

Logistic operations: transport, shrink wrap, packing, etc

and a very large conditions prices depend on commercial negotiation.

We have almost clear use PO to receipt the customer goods in warehouse, and use SO to issue customer goods from the warehouse.

Periodically, monthly, weekly, etc, we need to invoice the service to each customer base on all inbounds, outbounds, storages, logistic operations, etc made during this period to each customer. We don’t have clear how to achieve this invoice and how to determinate price conditions on it, base on all the concepts mentioned that should include the invoice.

We are thinking on a process to read all movements made within warehouse during the period for each client (inbound, outbound, etc), and this process will create a sales order to each customer with the positions for each concept to be billed.

We don’t know the best way to achieve this invoice procedure. Do you have any guidelines, documentation or reference about invoicing in 3PL scenario?

This information will be greatly appreciated for us in order to go ahead with this analysis.

Do you know any 3PL company using EWM to manage the warehouse?

Many thanks

Best regards,

Gerardo

Hello,

for the things happening inside EWM, the solution is Warehouse Billing (https://help.sap.com/docs/SAP_S4HANA_ON-PREMISE/9832125c23154a179bfa1784cdc9577a/5ad63855b04c6a38e10000000a174cb4.html?locale=en-US). The part which talks about TM (Transportation Management) is referring to that the billing part is done in TM (so TM does not need to be used for the transportation planning, but is only used for the condition part.

The default settings do not include maybe all the options you plan to bill, but it can be extended (there is a document available for that).

All the above is no official SAP statement.

And it is EWM. NOT eWM - Duh!

And if your question includes the word "transfer order" - do NOT tag the question with Extended Warehouse Management!

You can find such documents here: https://wiki.scn.sap.com/wiki/display/SCM/How-To+Guides+for+SAP+EWM

I noticed there are actually two about Warehouse Billing now. One for the initial setup, and one called enhancement_wb.pdf.
