Material Weight and Dimensions



In SAP you can set up weight and physical dimensions of a material per unit of measure.

This information is needed if you use delivery services which require weight and physical dimensions of a package to calculate the shipping cost, for example FedEx or UPS, or the internal Sana shipping costs calculation method based on weight.

For more information about delivery services, see 'Shipping Methods'.

In SAP you can specify weigh and physical dimensions in the additional data of a material, on the Units of measure tab. Weight and physical dimensions of a material can be set per unit of measure. You also need to select the Weight Unit and Unit of Dimension for the material per unit of measure.

If you use delivery service, which requires material weight and physical dimensions to calculate the shipping cost, you also need to set up the weight unit and unit of dimension, which will be sent to the delivery service.

Open the System Attributes Sana admin table. Select Weight Unit and Dimension Unit.

The same Weight unit and Dimensions unit should be also selected in Sana Admin: Setup > Products > Units of measure.

The units of weight and dimension set in the System Attributes table in SAP and in Sana Admin will be used for all materials. Material weight and dimensions will be sent to the delivery service to calculate the shipping cost in the units set in the System Attributes table. If material weight or dimensions in SAP is defined in the unit other than the one set in the System Attributes table, it will be converted based on the conversion rules in SAP.
