Dear Mukesh,

Transportation Planning Point

Transportation planning point is just a logical identity in SAP R/3 which is used to tag shipment documents. In business language, transportation planning group is responsible for creating/managing outbound shipments. For example, there may be a plant from where shipments are sent out directly. Now, there would be a group of people designated to manage this outbound shipment process. In SAP, before you start creating transportation documents, you must have a transportation planning point defined. Ideally, the transportation planning point is one per shipping location when shipment creation process is manual and directly in SAP R/3.

There can be scenarios where shipments are created/processed on a different system and then posted onto SAP. This is external transportation planning. In this case, you could come across the requirement of configuring transportation planning point determination when there are more than one transportation planning points in one location. (Anyway, I am deviating from the question here).

So all in all, Transporation planning point is nothing but a logical unit in SAP R/3's LE module which is used while creating shipment documents.

There are various other definitions by other users, refer:

Here you have to assign the Transportation Planning Point to a Company Code.
