2589287 - Tare Weight is Empty When Packing Goods

Symptom

Before executing an Outbound Delivery, you decide to pack the goods. You select the Packing option but notice that the Tare Weight shown in the Weight & Measurement section is empty.

You expect to see the same weight maintained in the Logistics Unit master data.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Outbound Logistics work center.
  2. Go to Outbound Deliveries view.
  3. Select the delivery ABC (ABC represents the ID of the Outbound Delivery).
  4. Select Packing.
  5. Select the option Insert Package, then Insert Top Package.
  6. Select the logistics unit XYZ.(XYZ represents the Logistic Unit ID)
  7. Go to the Weight & Measurement tab.
  8. See the Tare Weight is not the same maintained in the master data of the logistics unit XYZ.

Cause

System is behaving as expected. The Tare Weight shown when performing a Packing is not based on the weight of the logistics unit itself. Instead, it is based on the weight of the Default Packaging Material, selected in the Logistics Unit master data.

The weight of this material is defined in its master data.

In case the Logistics Unit has no Default Packaging Material assigned to it, the Tare Weight field will be empty.

Resolution

System works as designed.
