Transportation Lanes with Reference to R/3 Material Master Record

Storing a special procurement type with procurement type F: External Procurement and special procurement U: Stock Transfer (in the MRP 2 view of the R/3 material master record), means that the material has to be procured externally from another plant (supplying plant) or transferred from another plant.

To also be able to perform stock transfers for this material in the SAP APO system, there has to be a transportation lane from the supplying plant to the receiving plant. If you have transferred a material with this special procurement type from the SAP R/3 system, the SAP APO system automatically creates a corresponding transportation lane from the supplying plant to the receiving plant for the supplying plant (from the special procurement type) and material/plant combination. The transportation lane is given the creation indicator u201CSu201D for special procurement.
