When creating and changing outbound deliveries, you can add the following objects to them:

You can use this function, if, for example, the sales department was not sure whether a material was to be delivered with packaging material or in a returnable packaging container.


Prerequisites for adding to an outbound delivery are that goods issue has not yet been posted for the outbound delivery and that the business transaction has not yet been invoiced.


Creating order-independent items

You can only enter an item that is not dependent on an order in an outbound delivery if the delivery permits the item category for that item. The item category is determined on the basis of the delivery type and item category group in the material master record. Thus, items for which an order has to be created first cannot be added to an outbound delivery. Your system configuration dictates which materials can be included in an outbound delivery. In the standard version of the SAP System, only materials with the item category VERP can be added to a delivery.

In order to add items such as packaging materials, which are not dependent on an order, to a delivery, proceed as follows:

  1. From shipping, choose Outbound Delivery ® Change ® Single Document.

The Change Outbound Delivery screen appears.

  1. Enter the number of the outbound delivery to which you want to add an item.
  2. Select Enter.

The overview screen appears.

  1. Enter the material number and the delivery quantity on a blank item line.
  2. Once you have added all additional items, save the outbound delivery by choosing Outbound delivery ® Save.

Adding order items

If you want to add order items to an outbound delivery, proceed as follows:

  1. Choose Outbound delivery ® Deliver order on one of the overview screens of the delivery.

The Deliver Sales Order dialog box appears.

  1. Enter the date, order, and item.
  1. Select Enter.

The order items that are due for delivery are included in the delivery if their shipping criteria match the shipping criteria of the delivery.

  1. Save the delivery by choosing Delivery ® Save.
