Configuring the Customers code list

Use this procedure to configure the Customers code list. The particular focus is on configuring the shipping of master shipments and the usage of a pool point as logistic business process.

  1. Select Master Data > Codes.
  2. Specify Customers in the Name field.
  3. Click Drill down to open the code list.
  4. Click Edit.
  5. In the Code List Properties section, select the Drill down button of a customer.
    The dialog box Code Properties opens.

    Pool Point
    This field shows the pool point name. Pool points help to minimize outbound freight costs by shipping shippers to local pool points and then deliver the product locally. This process reduces distribution costs to local outlets by minimizing the delivery distances and consolidating shippers into a master shipment.
