2863560 - TM: Shipping Type is different from LSP UN/EDIFACT codes


You are sending Shipping Type to LSP, while sending the shipping instructions from the freight Order/Freight Booking.

According to LSP standards which are based on UN/EDIFACT codes, the shipping types are as follows:

  • 2 - Full Loads
  • 3 - Less than full loads.  

However, as per SAP settings in customizing for shipping type, the shipping types are as follows:

  • 2 - Less than Container Load
  • 3 - Full Container load.  

Now you had changed the description in the customizing before the upgrade from 9.1 to 9.5. However after the upgrade, the settings were back to 2 for LCL and 3 for FCL, which is not according to UN/EDIFACT standards.

Is this an intended change, or can it be changed to match UN/EDIFACT code?  Otherwise, this customizing will need to be changed for every upgrade.
