The system derives the line items selected from the SO in to the Outbound Delivery as well as the ship-to-party information.
When it is required to issue several deliveries from one SO (e.g. multiple despatches of wide cargo or due to partial availability of items)the material lines in the SO have to be ordered by ranges representing the lots. Go to "Create Outbound Delivery" thru transaction VL01N to create first delivery from SO; enter the first material of the lot in the “From item” field and the last material of the lot in the “To item” field.
In case the same material has to be shipped out in 2 different lots, insert the material code in the SO accordingly, by listing the 2 quantities in 2 separate lines:
In case the Partner asks for extra materials once the fist lot has left the warehouse, therof the Good Issue has been posted against the Outbound Delivery, go to "Change Outbound Delivery" thru transaction VL02N, click on Outbound Delivery on the top menu, select Deliver Sales Order and pick the new material codes added on the SO on a later stage.

5.4.4 Creation of outbound delivery for direct delivery process
When the sale to a partner regards all or some items that are meant to be delivered to final destination directly from suppliers’ location, the Direct Delivery procedure has to be applied. It should be considered that even if it is no strictly required to issue Shipping documents such as UNHRD ‘Proforma Invoice/Packing List’ (e.g. in case of DAP as Incoterms), it is required to issue the Outbound delivery in order to include such shipments in the operational reporting as any other consignment departing from UNHRD warehouses. When creating a SO thru transaction VA01 – Sales Order Creation (ZHNO or ZHWO) or changing a SO thru transaction VA02 –Sales Order Change, add the material lines after the Service lines in order to generate the forthcoming Outbound Delivery. Just proceed as standard process by adding the material lines that will generate the Outbound Delivery and simply select ZDLS as item category, as highlighted in the red box below:
The system allows to adopt both Item Category ZDLS (for Direct Delivery) and ZNTN (for standard items – External Partners) or ZWRN (for standard items – Internal Partners) on the same SO:
The system generates 2 Outbound Deliveries to track the 2 single type of shipments (the one that departs from HRD depot and the one that departs from Suppliers’ locations).
NOTE: on exceptional base, in case partners request to procure nonstandard items (e.g. local procurement) that simply transit thru the warehouse with the purpose to being shipped to final destination, the Direct Delivery process is applied. This process is mostly applied when items procured are not recommended by the Cluster and on ad-hoc procurement activities.
Go to VL01N Outbound Delivery Creation with ref. of the SO without forcing any other delivery type (e.g. ZS) because the item category ZDLS will be transferred from the SO to the Outbound Delivery.
Maintain the batch number (because the material is batch managed in the affected plant) and the Loading point for the supplier. Select any batch number valid for the material processed as this kind of delivery does not take effect on batches in the warehouse:
No storage location and picking process is required because the item category is ZDLS and does not affect the warehouse activities.
After maintaining the batches for each item you can post the Goods Issue.
The Good Issue number in the Outbound Deliveries follows the 013* range.
NOTE: the outbound delivery type is derived from the SO type (e.g. ZNLF for External Outbound Delivery and ZWLF for Internal Outbound Delivery):
