The general transportation process in SAP S/4HANA Cloud, public edition starts with the creation of a transportation requirement. Transportation requirements can be sales orders, purchase orders or stock transport orders. Based on transportation requirements freight units get created. In the manual transportation planning process the freight units are assigned to freight orders. Freight orders are the output of the manual transportation planning process and include all relevant information, like source and destination of the transport, dates and times, size of the required truck etc. Freight orders are typically subcontracted to a carrier. They are monitored in SAP S/4HANA Cloud, public edition while they are physically executed. After execution, freight orders are confirmed for accrual posting and ultimately they get settled with the carrier, either based on a carrier invoice or using evaluated receipt settlement (ERS).
In detail, the different scope items that describe the manual transportation planning process deviate from each other depending on the type of order (sales, purchase or stock transport) that has initiated the process as a transportation requirement.
