Physical Inventory Document for Materials in Transfer Storloc

Former Member

Hi!

Just want to ask how can you capture materials that are in transit/transfer storage location (313 movt.) when creating Physical Inventory Documents? The material is somehow floating since 315 movt is still pending during PID creation.

Book value is zero for both sending and receiving storage locations.

Assume your storage locations are miles apart from each other, if the material is in transfer, which means the material is somewhere on a truck between location A and B.

How can you count those materials while the truck is driving?

SAPs design is based on physical processes, hence no physical count possible for in transfer/in transit stocks.

Hi,

Stock in transit cannot be entered in physical inventorydocument. It is not considered in Physical inventory. In issuing plant the accoun entries will be done stock deduction occurs.For receiving plant it has not yet received and not valuated stock for this plant. Hence there is no meaning of entering stock in transit in physical inventory. I hope this will resolve your issue. Thanking you.

Hi DB,

It is always practiced that, any movements of goods in and out of the storage location be blocked till the results are posted. This means only the Physically available stocks are put for phy inv counting process, thus transit stocks aren't accounted. You can resume the count after the GR of the transit stocks.

The very purpose of phy inv is to check the correctness of the physical stock keeping.
