Issue with multiple locations of Same Plant in SAP TM System for same plant in STO Scenario

In case of STO through SD route, while creating STO Document, Plant Shipping point will be used as supplying Plant and Plant as a Customer is used as Receiving Plant. For these Plant Shipping Point and Plant as a Customer, separate locations will be created in SAP TM system. Hence for a same physical location of Plant, we'll get different locations as Plant Shipping Point and Plant Customer.

Below is the Example:

Materials need to be transferred from Plant A to Plant B to Plant C. So two STO and subsequent deliveries will be created from Plant A to B and Plant B to C respectively. Accordingly their DTR will also be created w.r.t. the Delivery.

Plant A to Plant B


In DTR created w.r.t. delivery to move goods from Plant A to B, Location of "Plant A shipping point" and Location of "Plant B Customer" is user as Source and Destination respectively.


Plant B to Plant C


In DTR created w.r.t. delivery to move goods from Plant B to C, Location of "Plant B shipping point" and Location of "Plant C Customer" is user as Source and Destination respectively.


Issue in Schedule to transfer goods from A to B to C

Now when I want to make a schedule from Plant A to Plant B to Plant C, in this case which location of Plant B should I use in schedule i.e. should I use "Plant B Customer" Location or should I use "Plant B Shipping Point" location so that Freight units of both the above cases can be assigned to that schedule?


Please suggest how to resolve the same as multiple location of same physical location may create issue while scheduling and execution of freight order?
