The term widely used in the logistics sector is “tariff”. Conceptually from the perspective of S/4 HANA Transportation Management, this is a contract of carriage that is generally available to each LSP customer. Normally, customers negotiate specific agreements with the LSP, but there are also cases where general rates are offered to customers. Note: An important approach is that “individual services range from catalog to agreement and order to meet the needs of your customers.” As a user, I would like to know what possibilities I have to offer and invoice the customer. So I would like to see all the available price grids. Below I have presented a transport contract (tariff) that is created by selecting the service products from the catalog. help.sap.com/viewer/e3dc5400c1cc41d1bc0ae0e7fd9aa5a2/1909.002/en-US/1f239ffc6ecf41709161beb822ca3356.html. The main use case is for customers in the transport and logistics (T&L) sector, perhaps logistics service providers (LSPs) who want to create attractive service packages, mainly related to freight transport, but also combine value-creating non-transport services to different service products that are part of a service product catalogue. I hope this will give a great understanding of how service products can be used in the transport ordering process.
On my next blog, I will discuss service product coverage in the offer process. Product Catalog Service: Product Service COOL Transport Scenario 1: Agnostic Mode of Transport, see all offers. The customer did not provide a specific add-on service. In this blog I will use the catalog of service products in the transport contract and transport order Shipping order: Assign the desired service product To the catalogs of service products, you can learn more in the help documentation The customer has expressly requested a COOL transport service. The user can assign the corresponding service product in the order. Processing of general pricing and service products on behalf of the customer (shipping process) Note: I have demonstrated the functionality in this blog post using system screens with relevant data for better understanding for readers. It should be noted that these screens and data come from SAP`s internal test systems and have no connection to an external source. You can see below that I have created a catalog of service products for example. . A little UI-Tweeking can help with more fields like service product, spreadsheet description, etc.
to clearly show what these offers actually mean. But it`s easy to achieve this on a project basis. Catalog of service products, can be included directly in the offer process (offer of contract of carriage) and can also be used as a reference when establishing transport agreements. Rather, it is a very broad topic and can be discussed from different angles and modeled differently in S/4HANA Transportation Management. I prefer to focus on the basics and try to show how the components can be studied further in the solution.. . .
