PO Can Be Approved Without Errors Even If Freight Carrier is Not Assigned To Ship To Org (Doc ID 2275421.1)

Last updated on FEBRUARY 21, 2020

Applies to:

Oracle Purchasing - Version 12.2.4 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.



Even after unassigning carriers for PO ship-to org, PO can still be approved without error.
The fix recommended in Note 1995954.1 is already applied.


Expect the approval process to raise an error message and not continue if carriers are unassigned.



  1. Try to submit PO#123 for approval on an org that does not have FREIGHT CARRIER defined/active

  2. The following error will occur
    Error:FREIGHT CARRIER (VALUE =xyz) specified is inactive or invalid.
    Error:Line # 1 Schedule # 1 FREIGHT CARRIER (VALUE =xyz) specified is inactive or invalid.

  3. Define FREIGHT CARRIER for that org
  4. Now try to approve the same document. No Errors occur as expected.
  5. Unassign the FREIGHT CARRIER in question from the Ship-to-Org related to PO# 123 Above, with the navigation:

    a. PO Resp > Setup > Purchasing > Freight Carriers (WSHFXCSM form)
    b. Query Carrier Name in question
    c. Click on desired Services line under the Carrier name
    d. Button Organization Assignments on the bottom will be enabled > Click on it
    e. Organization Assignments-Carrier Service window will open
    f. Uncheck the column "Assigned" for the Organization in question (PO#123 Ship-to-Org)
    g. Click Done and save

  6. Now raise another PO with same org as PO#123 above
  7. Submit new PO for Approval. PO is submitted for approval without errors
