Your Business Profile

You can make it easier for carriers to connect with you by maintaining your business profile using the Manage Business Profile app.

Note

To use this app, you must add one or several roles to your role collection. The required role templates and application identifiers are described in the Available Roles for Shippers section of the Administration Guide for Shippers.

For the carriers to search and connect with you in the network, it is essential that you maintain your business profile. You can maintain your business profile using the Manage Business Profile app.

For more information, see the application help for the Manage Business Profile app.

Updating LBN ID for Purchasing Organizations

To be correctly identified in the network, you must keep your LBN ID up-to-date.

Context

SAP Business Network Freight Collaboration generates and assigns a unique LBN ID for your purchasing organization. This ID is used as an identifier while performing business transactions in the network. You can view your LBN ID in the Manage Business Profile app.

You must update the LBN ID of your purchasing organization in your system. If you are using the SAP TM system, you must perform the following to update the LBN ID:

Procedure

  1. Go to the Organization and Staffing Change transaction (transaction PPOME).
  2. Select the purchasing organization ID for which you want to update the LBN ID.
  3. Go to the Org. Data tab and double-click the Business Partner field. You can view the business partner representation of the purchasing organization. Note that if the business partner does not exist, you must create one. If you choose Create the system creates a business partner for the organization in the background.
  4. Enable editing of the business partner details by choosing the display/change icon.
  5. Navigate to the Identification tab. In the Identification Numbers section, IDType field, enter LBN001.
  6. In the Identification Number field, enter the LBN ID and save your changes.

Updating Your Account Details

By keeping your account details up-to-date, you can make sure that a carrier sees the correct information about you when you send them an invitation.

How you update your account details will depend on which system you are using.
