Drop ship order items ship directly from a supplier to the customer of the order processing company.
A purchase requisition, then a purchase order, is generated to notify the supplier of the requirement.
After the supplier ships the order, it notifies Purchasing to enter this information in the Purchasing module. Then a regularly scheduled automatic interface updates the sales order with this data.
You can enter, view, and update drop ship orders using the Oracle Order
You can use the Order Management screen to designate a drop ship order by entering a drop ship order type, an external source type to show that this will ship from a supplier instead of internally, and a receiving organization instead of a warehouse.
