RE:[sap-log-sd] Freight Forwarder in Delivery

Hi Pamela,

This is such an important and basic (core) question. I suggest you read the theory of partner determination (what is partner function? what is partner type?). And think how partner concept helps the entire sales process - not from ERP perspective but from business perspective or business process perspective.

Come to a very detailed level -
If we do not have ship-to party for a delivery, the following things can be imagined (at this moment) -
- (if the ship-to party is not there in sales order, sales order can not be created)
- (delivery date cannot be calculated, in the sales order)
- delivery can not be saved
- route can not be determined

Hello All,

There is partner determination in sales order/deliveries/shipment etc. I have following two questions.

1) What is the business and technical use of have partners in the documents. Let's say delivery documents. if there are no partners in the deliveries documents. What impact will it have from business point of view and technical point of view.

2) We want to trigger an outbound idoc from delivery document to our "freight forwarder". I can just create a partner profile for freight forwarder and then create output records and can trigger an output, but for idoc to trigger, do we need to have partner function for freight forwarder in the delivery document? If yes, why?
