Group company logistics in SAP TM

A large group of companies whose main business is the manufacturing of goods, might depend on some other LSPs or have their separate company which is solely looking for all of these transportation activities from all other companies by assigning transportation service providers to the orders.

SAP Transportation Management supports this Group Logistics scenario & ease the criticality of the process for timely delivery of material to the customers. Also, each order is settled internally first with the company which provided transportation service internally & later with the carrier by that company.

Advantages of Group Logistics,

  • As a shipper, you can club all the transportation demands of company in one organization.
  • More buying power to negotiate freight rates.
  • As an organization is only focused on transportation, Visibility & Process standardization improved.

It is demonstrated in below figure:

Company A & Company B are manufacturing products.

Case 1: Logistics Company within a group of companies looks after all the Transportation services as per the demands generated by other lines of companies.

Case 2: Apart from Company A & B, the third company manufacturing products as well as performs transportation activities for its own and Company A & B.

 

 

 

 

 

In this blog we will see how a condition can play important role, when you need to trigger an output based on certain conditions. 

Suppose we have a condition where we will trigger the output like Printout of FO, only if Subcontracting status is “Send to carrier or confirmed by carrier”. 

For that we will follow the following steps, 

Step 1: Create your own action definition 

Follow the path: SPRO → Ref IMG → Cross-Application Components → Processes and Tools for Enterprise Applications → Reusable Objects and Functions for BOPF Environment → PPF Adapter for Output Management → Maintain PPF Settings

The key difference in a group logistics scenario is that the BU manages the transports

consolidates orders from multiple other lines of business of the group.

These transportation services are paid by the logistics company. Other companies might require these transportation charges to be displayed/used for sending it back to the ERP system for Finance/COPA related activities. To distribute charges Internal settlement is used.
