Freight in delivery level

Hello Gurus,

This is regarding freight, for one of our Clients-The freight is fixed for a container for the given period and hence manually entered as header condition in Sales order. Hence the Same is freight value is proportionately distributed based on the line item value i.e. quantity* rate. However, for them they have a set of buyers whose order is for more than one container and accordingly freight value multiply by no of containers is entered in header condition. Now when the partial delivery is done from such order the freight component it picks is not the same as freight per container as it picks the line item wise apportioned value. Due to this two different freight bills show different freight amount for the same buyer which is the basic problem.

Any suggestions please from your side, its urgent.

    Dear Raj

    I am unable to understand from your comments

    "freight value multiply by no of containers is entered".

    As you would be aware all header conditions, in billing if we enter the value manually, automatically the value will be apportioned to all line items. This being the case, I dont know where you have defined the value should be divided into no.of containers.

    If you generate seperate invoice based on container wise either it is fully loaded or partial, based on the invoice value, the freight value will be assigned proportionately.

      Hello Laxmipathi,

      The requirement i would put it again, my client charges freight on the basis of containers/shipments not on the basis of the quantities i.e. the header level,manual entry for one container (rate per container per period is fixed) for freight should be identified by the system not the item level.i would give one example for this.

      if the freight for one container is 200$, if there are two shipments the freight should be 400$. that is ok. but here the problem is depending on the quantitites in the item level in the billing the freight is getting apportioned say for one container it shows 180$ and for one it is showing 220$. This is not satisfying his requirement and although the total freight is ok, the per shipment freight is deviating-220 and 180$ respectively. This should not happend and the system should pick only the per shipment freight. Hope i am clear now.

      Can you suggest some solutions for this scenario?
