    Advantages of the Stock Transport Order

    The transfer of stock using a stock transport order has the following advantages over the transfer of stock without a stock transport order:

    • A goods receipt can be planned in the receiving plant.
    • You can enter a vendor (transport vendor) in the stock transport order.
    • Delivery costs can be entered in the stock transport order.
    • The stock transfer order is part of MRP: Purchase requisitions that were created in MRP can be converted into stock transport orders.
    • The goods issue can be entered using a delivery via Shipping (LE-SHP).
    • The goods receipt can be posted directly to consumption.
    • The entire process can be monitored via the purchase order history.

    Activities

    Goods Issue in Inventory Management or in Shipping

    You can enter a goods issue for the stock transport order in either Inventory Management (MM-IM) or Shipping (LE-SHP). For goods issues in Shipping, a replenishment delivery is created (see also

    Posting Goods Issue in Shipping).

    Prerequisites for Goods Issues in Shipping:

    To process the goods issue via Shipping, the following prerequisites must be fulfilled (see also

    Structure linkGoods Movements via Shipping):
    • In Customizing for Purchasing, a delivery type must be assigned to the purchasing document type. If the document type does not have a delivery type, you can post the goods issue only in Inventory Management.
    • The customer number of the receiving plant must also be maintained in Customizing for Purchasing.
    • In the Customizing system of Sales & Distribution, the shipping point determination must be maintained.
    • In the material master record, shipping data must be maintained.

    If the document type contains a delivery type but another requirement is missing (for example, shipping data), you receive either a warning message or an error message (depending on the system configuration) when you try to enter the stock transport order.

    If you receive a warning message, you can create the stock transport order, but you can post the goods issue for this item only in Inventory Management.
