Account Assignment category in Shipement Cost Item Category

Hi All,

I have seen posts regarding Shipment Cost settlement but most of them were in text book language, want to understand few things in layman language, preferable if some one can take an example from real time scenario ( being a customer of some online merchandise purchase)

1) I understand that Account Assignment category is used so that the account modifier within AAA can be used as one of the key fields to find a freight GL account, but is Freight GL account not a regular thing ?? Don't companies do it without AAA, should GL not be found on a regular basis by just the normal GBB account determination process, . Please explain here


2) Why do we use the "Generate PO" function and is it with the Freight Forwarder that we raise this (I would like this to be explained by using an example) ???

Does the PO created behind the scenes use the account assignment category specified in the shipment cost item category ??

3) what is the item category used in the NB PO raised (behind the scenes) and what is the material used or is the item category maintained with item "not possible"

Note: Please use eg: Answer 1) if you are answering the first question
