Without any customizing, means still use the standard customizing provide by SAP, the field shipment route is still blank and do not copy the route which is provided from delivery order.

To be able to fulfill the user requirement, when the shipment document is created, the field shipment route is copied from delivery document. The configuration in shipment type is needed.

Open IMG (t-code: SPRO): Logistics Execution > Transportation > Shipments > Define Shipment Types.
