Creation or Update of Consignment Orders or Freight Orders Using Inbound Messages

With this feature you can create or update a consignment order or create a freight order automatically using an inbound message using EDI communication.

Your business partner can send you a consignment order as an advanced shipping notification (ASN) or a freight order using EDI communication. Based on this message, the system automatically creates a consignment order or freight order.

Additional Details

During the inbound process you can protect packages for consignment orders and freight orders that are created using an EDI message. This is to prevent unintended changes to package information that might happen either manually during the check-in process at the gate or by package building.

You can specify whether further updates of a business document by inbound messages are allowed after you have already made manual changes in that document.

For more information, see Creation or Update of Consignment or Freight Orders on Inbound Messages.

Effects on Customizing

A new field Handling of Updates by Inbound Messages is available. When Customizing a freight order or consignment order type, you can specify whether further updates of a business document by inbound messages are allowed after you have already made manual changes in that document.
