For cross-company-code stock transport orders, the shipment costs of the supplying plant are not posted as delivery costs in the receiving plant
A shipment cost document is an estimate of the shipment costs to be expected from the point of view of the ordering party (or shipper). Therefore, all Customizing for determining the shipment costs is part of their particular (the receiving party) company code. A company code is an independent accounting unit and therefore, valuation takes place within this unit, or to be more precise, it is the basis for determining conditions. If it were possible to post shipment costs created in the supplying plant as delivery costs in the receiving plant, an amount may be posted for which the receiving company code may not even have authorization to display the condition.
In addition, when the goods issue is posted in the supplying plant, there is no value-based posting in the receiving company code.
To ensure that the system takes into account shipment costs in the cross-company code scenario, proceed in the same way as in the inbound scenario. This means a purchase order with a confirmation control key, an inbound delivery and an inbound shipment in the receiving company code. Only an outbound delivery is required for the reduction in stock in the supplying company code in this scenario.
