Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

On : 11.5.10.2 version, Transaction Fulfillment
Find in an Internal Drop Shipment process where Operating Unit (OU1) takes the Order from the customer, and the shipment comes out of Operating Unit (OU2),
how does OU2 know that it needs to ship for OU1, what is the transaction (physical or logical) that is given to OU2 to ship on behalf of OU1 ?

OU1 takes the order and OU2 ships on their behalf to the customer. How does OU2 know to ship?

What is the official document that is being passed from OU1 to OU2 to let them know to ship.
Our International Trade and Compliance group -says that it is not enough to directly complete a Pick Release.
Prior to that, is there some kind of document that is being passed.
A couple of our shipments had trouble clearing customs as we did not have a physical exchange of documents prior to the shipment happening. Financial flows happen after the fact.

We are unable to clear customs in various countries without any issues when we use the internal drop shipment seeded Oracle process.
We would like to know:
a) What is the transaction (physical or logical) that happens between OU1 and OU2 that allows OU2 to ship on behalf of OU2 ?
b) If there is none, how do other customers handle this situation?

We have stopped using this flow presently as this is causing issues with us clearing customs. we would like to effectively use this flow as the process works well for us otherwise.
