Shipping Point Determination in SAP

In standard SAP, the shipping point in the sales document line item shipping tab is determined based on below values.
  • Shipping condition -> From the ship to party
  • Loading group -> From the material master
  • Plant -> From the sales document line item / Delivery plant
This is configured in below IMG Path;
Logistic Execution / Shipping / Basic Shipping Functions / Shipping Point and Goods Receiving Point Determination / Assign Shipping Points

But for certain business scenario's it is requested to consider the storage location in addition to above 3 criteria. In such a situation the shipping point is determined based on the shipping condition, loading group, plant and the storage location.
Let's see how we can activate / configure this in SAP.

Happy Reading!!

  1. Hello. We can't read the full document. Just the first two pages.

  2. CORRECTION :: I think the Shipping Condistions come form Sold-to-Party (SP) and not from Ship-to-Party (SH)..unless mentioned in Sales Order also (n which case the one form Sales Order takes precedence).

    Can you double check / confirm it pls.?
