Advanced Shipping and Receiving

Advanced Shipping and Receiving is a streamlined, end-to-end process for transporting and warehousing products. It is based on the freight order, which can contain storage locations managed in different application components, and the two storage locations can share a loading point. A truck that has been checked in at a location can carry out both loading and unloading activities at that location.

Additional Details

Advanced Shipping and Receiving simplifies communication between the Transportation Management (TM), Extended Warehouse Management (EWM), Inventory Management and Physical Inventory (MM-IM), and Logistics Execution (LE) application components embedded in SAP S/4HANA.

Communication is simplified by using a harmonized data model, by applying the EDIFACT standard to EDI messages, and by providing dedicated apps and expanding existing apps and RF transactions for shipping and receiving processes. Information moves freely between the components, allowing users to monitor the status of the products throughout the Advanced Shipping and Receiving process.

Advanced Shipping and Receiving includes the following features:
  • The freight order can contain both EWM-managed and IM-managed storage locations, for example at a production location, and the two storage locations can share a loading point.

  • The Advanced Shipping and Receiving process is based on the TM freight order and doesn’t use the EWM transportation unit (TU) or the EWM vehicle.

  • You can use consignment orders to group deliveries for inbound and outbound operations.

  • EWM sends frequent and detailed updates to TM, for example, about delivery quantity changes or handling unit information.
