Hi Pavan,

The transportation planning point consists of a group of employees responsible for organizing transportation activities. Each shipment is assigned to a specific transportation planning point for transportation planning and shipment completion. You must define the various transportation planning points used in your organization in Customizing for Corporate Structure before they can be used to perform transportation functions. You can define this organizational unit according to your company’s needs, for example, according to geographical location or mode of transport.

The transportation planning point is assigned to a company code, but is otherwise independent of other organizational units.

The shipping point can be proposed automatically during order processing depending on the plant, loading group and shipping condition.

A shipping point has an address.

The shipping point is used as a selection criterion for lists of deliveries and the work list deliveries.

The shipping point is used as a selection criterion for processing deliveries like printing, picking or goods issue.
