This WIKI page intends to provide information about standard process of receiving stock directly into HU managed storage location when there is also warehouse involved.


This WIKI page shows step by step information of the instructions for LT03 transaction which needs to be performed after MB1C and VL32N (see the initial part on HU Stock Placement Wiki Page ). It has screenshot used in this example as well as hyperlinks to other forms of HU creation.

HU creation summary

In this case the HU is created in ERP logistics directly in case where the packing occurs before the delivery takes place, in this case it occurs on a HU managed storage location hence the inventory of the HU is not taken place in MM-IV-GF (storage location inventory level)until it is packed. It needs to be done with assistances of two transactions and it is required to have some pre-settings like material package already created and storage location already set as HU managed.


The example below was done after some basic settings on the material and its package material for that plant and storage location. It is also required that process has already been initiated until step 2 of VL32N (check HU Stock Placement Wiki Page).

 Go to transaction LT03:

  1. Enter delivery number and warehouse number then depress <enter>;
  2. Click on button "Create trans. Order" and green arrow back;
  3. Click on save and a TO number is generated;

 Go to transaction LT12:

  1. Enter Warehouse and TO number just created then depress <enter>;
  2. Click on save the the TO number is confirmed;

The stock is already in warehouse, the process though is completed when inbound delivery is PGR (VL32N) then inventory is completed (VL32N step 3 from HU Stock Placement Wiki Page ).
