There is no Transport Lane maintained for the Ship-To location corresponding to the planning area XYZ. Since the system is not able to find the Transport Lane as Source of Supply, it is not able to create Stock Transfer Proposal.


In order to resolve this issue it is necessary to maintain a Transport Lane for the Planning Area XYZ.

  1. Go to Supply Chain Design Master Data work center.
  2. Go to Transport Lanes view.
  3. Select New.
