Certain products must be shipped in cold temperature, others are very expensive and require secured shipment, and of course we cannot ignore the VIP customers located in distant or isolated areas – for them we hire delivery services from a specific company… many considerations and sometimes constraints dictate how we receive and ship goods.
To comply with the various needs and options, SAP Business One enables you to define shipping types and assign the relevant shipping type to the respective business partner or item:
When creating marketing document, the shipping type assigned to the business partner automatically populated in the Logistics tab. When adding items to the document, the shipping type assigned to the items is displayed in the rows, and if no shipping type was assigned, the shipping type defined for the business partner appears by default.
If needed, you can change manually the shipping type in line level and document level for the specific document.
Available in SAP Business One, version for SAP HANA and SAP Business One. This tip and all the other tips are available on the Tip of the week community page. You can also visit the Implementation Arena for useful implementation tips.
