Synchronization of Predecessor Documents

This feature enables you to synchronize predecessor documents that are referenced in a consignment order or freight order in Transportation Management (TM). You work with an inbound process in an Advanced Shipping and Receiving process. You can, for example, change the item data of a freight order during the check-in process of a truck at the gate and update the predecessor documents with the changes.
