One of the master data of the feeder system is SAP Customer Master data. SAP customer master data is replicated as a business partner in the GTS system and it will be used in the respective customs document of GTS, that so why it is the most important and prerequisite activity that SAP customers need to transfer to the GTS system before creation of sales transaction.
