Transportation chain - preliminary - main leg


Let's imagine we are in a transportation scenarion where i have a certain number of deliveries to the same customer.

Deliveries are assigned to a shipment main leg.

Deliveries are packed in large box and some documents are printed (invoice, packing list,..) and those data are captured on a external system and we create one shipment preliminary leg per large box via Idoc.


We have deliveries 1, 2,3, 4

Main shipment 1 contains delivery 1 , 2 , 3.

Main shipment 2 contains delivery 4.

Preliminary shipment 1 contains delivery 1, 2.

Preliminary shipment 2 contains delivery 3,4.

In this situation, the preliminary shipment 2 contains deliveries that are assign to 2 different main shipment. It a situation that we try to avoid.

How can i warn the user about this situation where the delivery 3 and 4 are not in the same main shipment ?

Is there a way to block this king of situation.

Thank for your help.
