We are looking for a good way to handle an export situation. We have a manufacturing plant in Spain filling an order for a Russian customer. The goods are delivered from the plant to a freight-forwarder located in the EU, who then gets the goods to the Russian ship-to customer.
We need the ship-to partner on the sales order and invoice to be the Russian customer, since that keeps the VAT correct. But we need the shipping documents to show that the goods deliver to the freight forwarder.
Clearly we need the freight forwarder to be a partner in the process. Is there a partner function and shipping output type(s) that support this concept in the standard system?
In tcode VOPA you have a partner function for this role called 'Forwarding Agent' (key CR). Do the proper settings for setting this role and achieve copy it from SO to delivery until shipment and transport. After do the settings for the output in tcode NACE. For the output type set the proper partner function
So, where you can see SH, set CR.
I hope this helps you
