Symptom

You have created a Logistics Area ABC (ABC represents the Logistics Area ID) under Location XYZ (XYZ represents the Location ID). Now you are trying to edit the Logistics Area, and when you select the value help for the field 'Logistics Area Type', there is no other option available except ‘Warehouse’. You expect the system to display other Logistics Area Types like Production Area, Receiving Area, Shipping Area, and Storage Area, but only Warehouse is visible.
