Pack products into Handling Unit by API

0 Kudos

Dear SAP,

We have to pack products into handling units in SAP S/4HANA Cloud.

We have been able to do this in the system in 2 different ways

1- With the Handling Unit API and the operation Pack Products:

2. With the Warehouse Order and Task (A2X) using the "DestinationHandlingUnit" field:

The 2nd option fits better our requirements because it allow us to pack products in a handling unit located in different storage bins.

Our doubt is to know if SAP considers the second option as a valid option to package products because this decision impacts on several developments in the system.

Could you give us some insight in this matter?

Dear Colleagues,

Just to highlight something important to pack stock for an inbound or outbound delivery.

For inbound delivery, it's mandatory if you pack an inbound delivery after a goods receipt. You retrieve the StockItemUUID using either the Warehouse Physical Stock by Product - Read, Update (A2X) API or the Warehouse Available Stock - Read (A2X) API.

Depending on whether you are packing stock for an inbound delivery order or an outbound delivery order, you can use the methods as shown in the following table.


Methods for Packing Stock Depending on Delivery TypeMethodDelivery TypeComment

Retrieve the stock item and pass parameter StockItemUUID

  • Inbound
  • Outbound

If you pass the parameter StockItemUUID, you cannot also pass parameters HandlingUnitReferenceDocument or HandlingUnitRefDocumentItem.

Pass parameters HandlingUnitReferenceDocument and HandlingUnitRefDocumentItem

  • Outbound

If you pass parameter HandlingUnitReferenceDocument for an inbound delivery, the system will not return any response.


Best regards,
