Deliveries can refer to a sales order. This builds a continuous document flow of the process, linking the sales documents and influencing the document statuses in the process.
Start with the interaction below, to learn more about delivery processing.
While not all sales order items are delivery- or billing-relevant, we will cover the process as if items will be delivered and invoiced.
You can create one or more outbound deliveries with reference to a single order. Alternatively, multiple items from different sales orders can be combined in a single outbound delivery. To combine items from multiple orders, they must all have the same values for the characteristics that are key to the shipping process, for example:
- Shipping point
- Due date
- Ship-to address
The system can create deliveries either online or as a background job to be executed during off-peak hours.
