STO is the intracompany process to transfer materials, between one plant to another within the same company with the same company code.

** Inter/Cross Company is not supported because it has not been localized.

Customizings for STO using Inbound Delivery 

Most of the customizing is exactly the same as the normal STO process without inbound delivery. 

The main difference is the customizing of the delivery creation that it is described on note 965176 - Creation of inbound delivery during two-step stock transfers.
However the only thing that should be customized from SAP Note 965176 is the Confirmation Control from Inbound Delivery that must be 0004. All other processes mentioned in that SAP note are for core component, not localized for Brazil.
