Inbound Freight Processing

Hi,

We are trying to work out our inbound freight process and are running into some problems. We are having problems defining the method for which we will post the freight to the materials, and at the same time integrate with the Accounts Payable MIRO functionality for posting a freight invoice.

Our freight will be estimated at time of PO creation, although it will not be 100% accurate. Also, we typically receive a freight invoice which will have multiple shipments on it and will not necessarily have each shipment identified by is Purchas Order number.

What are some ways you have handled inbound freight on the purchase orders, goods receipts, and freight invoices?

Thank you.

    HI James,

    As per my understanding, when we create a PO if freight is applicable we enter the same in the conditions tab of the Item. Now If the Freight amount which we have entered is not the exact one & incase of any differences, the same can be entered at the time of LIV doc creation in MIRO as Unplanned delivery costs.

    Note that GR will be done with the Freight amount as mentioned in PO.

    Hope its clear.

    Regrds,

    Hi,

    That answer is clear, but what happens if we get an invoice from a freight vendor which is just one big sum, and isnt divided by purchase order number? This amount could be applicable to many different POs, and we wont be quite sure which one it is for.
