Customer Warehouse versus Fulfillment Shipping

Some customers will require both fulfillment shipments and shipments to their facility (customer warehouse shipments).  To handle this, the TYPE field in the ShipTo record is used to identify those shipping addresses that are the customers “warehouse” locations.  When one of these shipping addresses is used the system will ignore the Return Address Code and print the normal return address on the shipping documents.

Technical Notes

The shipping documents perform the following check during processing:

1.  The system checks if the shipping address is a “customer warehouse” address, if so normal processing occurs and the shippers return address information is printed.  This check is done based on the Ship_ShipTo_ID in the invoice record, which was carried over from the sales order.  Note: For proper operation all processes creating Sales Orders should create Shipto addresses and record the correct Shipto ID in the order header.

2.  2. If no Shipto address ID is present, or the Shipto address is not found the system assumes that it is a fulfillment shipment and uses the Return_Address_Code from the customer record and prints the return address on the shipping documents accordingly.

3.  3.  If a Customer Warehouse Shipto address is found (Shipto.type = “W”), then the Return_Address_Code is ignored and the system will print the normal return address on the shipping documents.

and it describes the various types of invoice documents that can be created in StreamV. 

Some of the invoice documents described in this section are created by selecting the Order Invoicing program from the menu and invoicing or completing a picklist. 

Other types of invoice documents in StreamV are created using other systems such as the Return Authorization system, The Purchasing System or the Accounts Receivable System.  Some of these systems (such as the Purchasing System and the RA System) make use of the Order Invoicing program in order to create invoice documents, while others (such as Accounts Receivable) use other programs to create new invoice documents as explained in the following section.
