To ship returnable packaging using a standard sales order, for example, proceed as follows:

Create a sales order using the order type OR.

Enter the required data on the customer, the materials , and the delivering plant.

Enter the returnable packaging as a main item or sub-item as required.

Enter all other relevant data and save the order.

Create a delivery as the subsequent document for this sales order and, after picking has been completed successfully, post goods issue.

Creating a Returnable Packaging Pick-Up

Create a sales order using order type LA .

Enter the required data on the customer, the returnable packaging, and the plant to which the materials are to be returned.

Enter all other relevant data and save the order.

Create a returns delivery for the sales order when the materials reach your company. The system proposes delivery type LR automatically. The transaction is completed by the goods issue posting which initiates a transfer posting from the customer's special stock to your plant stock.
