Goal of MKS series

The goal of the (M)KS series is to distribute knowledge SAP internally and externally by explaning a certain feature in a detailed and screenshot supported manner. This goes beyond the application help.

Especially for topics where development receives a lot of questions from consultants or customers directly, such a (M)KS can reduce the effort to answer these questions dramatically by making the answer reproducable and findable. In addition, it is a good way to listen to customers and judge the importance of certain topics.

    Hi Markus,

    I have a question that I could not find an answer for, in these blogs. Could you please help?

    My question is – How can I link a Vehicle resource to a Carrier? I find that this is possible for Air Freight through Schedule (by activating capacity in the schedule type) & I also find that there is field ‘Owner’ in the vehicle resource itself where I can assign an external carrier. However this carrier does not seem to be validated during planning & allows assignment of a carrier different from the one assigned in the Vehicle resource.

    Is there a place I can do a hard assignment of Vehicle to Carrier in a Road transport scenario? (I am the shipper)…There is ofcourse the bigger question of why I would need to do this at all when I am subcontracting the execution. But lets not go into that now 🙂

    Regards

    Hema.

      Well, this could be covered using different, carrier specific means-of-transport. Depending on the number of carriers this is feasible or not.

        Yes that did occur to  me but considering the number of vehicles the carrier would possibly have at my disposal I did not think it feasible to maintain per MoT as this will not reflect correctly the resource to a carrier.

        I believe in TM8.0 it was possible to assign a vehicle to a carrier schedule for Road transport but this is not possible anymore (or I may be missing something, I dont know). If this was indeed possible earlier, was there a specific reason why it is no longer available in the later versions?

      The answer to that would be to include a Carrier – Transportation Order incompatibility in your Carrier Selection Settings that would check for any carrier different to the desired carrier (<>DesiredCarrier) and the specific vehicle resource on the TOR object.

    Dear Markus,

    It is very helpful collection which can be referred as and when required. I already have found some answers in terms of Distance calculation. Thanks!!

    Recently I have started a discussion on Calculation Bases, such as Hours, there is no reply till date but I believe many would want to know about the topic. Will it be possible to have a blog on this topic as well. http://scn.sap.com/thread/3732673

    Regards,

    Tarang
