Freight on 3rd party delivery
We have a number of outside processors who are not on SAP. We get orders and pass the PO to the processor who ships the goods directly to the ship to party in our order. We need to capture those freight costs into our bills to the sold to. Is there any way of doing an automatic determination of freight costs for this?
Of course, we have all the conditions set up in our system and use transportation functionality. Will all these processors have to be defined as Transportation planning points and attached to our shipping points and company code for processing the SCDs? If so, what exactly needs to be done for it so that the system captures the freight on the basis of the conditions in our SAP system (we have the prices set up on the basis of weights, departure zone (our shipping point) and dest. zone) - the departure zones in these above instances can definitely differ as the vendor can be in a different state (our dep. zones are states themselves).
Better still, is there any other way out than to set up tpt. planning points as there are simply too many. The shipping confirmation from the vendor to us is a manual process (comes as a email).
Thanks a lot.
