Delivery date on documents to forward agent

Postby HarryW » Tue Mar 31, 2015 4:40 am

Dear all,

What are the mostly used options in SAP to inform a forward agent, using standard document output from SAP, what the requested delivery date is? Currently our documents (e.g. delivery note) show no delivery date, so we have to inform the forward agent by email when he needs to deliver the goods.

Some more background on the situation:
We work with an external warehousing partner which keeps our finished goods on stock. The external warehousing partner has nog access to SAP. The external location has been setup as a storage location. We create deliveries/picking lists, send them to the partner, they pick the goods and give us feedback (by email) that goods are ready for shipment (giving us the dimension/weight), then we create handling unit/shipment documents based on that information and send it to the partner again.

So, all together things are a bit inefficient, but first things first: how can we inform the partner/forward agent about the delivery date within this flow (without adding any communication by email)?

Thanks in advance!
HarryW
