Shipping data for plants for with multiple Sales Org/Divisions

We have inter-company process and we have lot of plants which do inter company between each others.We have about four different sales org and 6 different divisions .When we are maintaining the data under "Defining Shipping Data for plants" we are getting confuse which sales org ,division we should use.We are  oftenly getting shipping point determination errors .Can you please the concept behind that ? Some of the plants they are extended to multiple divisions .They can buy from multiple plants/multiple stuff and vice versa.

Suppose If I have plant 1000 which is supplying to 2000 through inter company process and has following Sales Org Data.

Plant 1000 , Sales Org 1000 , Distribution Channel inter company , Division  Cement,Ash , Agg

Plant 2000 .Sales Org 2000 ,Distribution Channel inter-company , Division Cement , Ash

What I need to put in Defining Shipping Data for plants ? My issue comes that plants has all these divisions which one I can use as I have only one choice?


In your example there's only one possible option for plant 1000 which is sales area:

"Sales Org 1000 , Distribution Channel inter company , Division  Cement,Ash , Agg"

In the customizing node, you are speaking about, you always define the sales area of the supplying plant. In your example there was only one sales area.

It does not matter which kind of sales areas the other plants have. Those are important only if you are sending the goods from those plants.

As it has been explained to you, if you have many sales areas defined for the supplying plant, normally you should choose one and use it always in STO process.

However, there's a possibility in standard SAP configuration to use several sales areas for one plant:

SPRO > Materials Management > Purchasing > Purchase Order > Set up Stock Transport Order > Set Up Stock Transfer Between Storage Locations > Define Shipping Data for Stock Transfers Between Storage Locations


Here you can define based on the issuing storage location which sales area is determined. My remark is that it's very likely you don't need this and you should use the one sales area per plant scenario.
