freight charges

Dear Experts,

The regular practice while making Sales Order (VA01) is to include all related condition types..

But my client wants to pay all the Freight Charges at the end of the month related to 1 Customer(SO Qty during month).

I am from MM side so unable to map the scenario.

Please suggest me as how to map this scenario in SAP.

Thank You,

    The freight Charges are entered Manually during order processing we have two levels of Freight condition types that we can use

    a. HD00 - Header condition - No Access Sequence maintained - has to be maintained manually

    b. KF00 - Item Condition - Access Sequence KF00 is maintained - still we can maintain it manually

    HD00 is applicable to all the line items, whereas KF00 Freight charges can be used for specific line item

    We can configure the condition types in pricing procedure, only if we manually enter and maintain, then the value will be reflected in pricing. So we can either charge the customer at the end of the month by entering manually or we can maintain statistical indicator for this condition type in the pricing procedure so that values can be seen but will not be calculated during pricing.

    And at the end of the month we will include the freight charges with net value and charge the customer.

    go for freight header cond types, enter manually provides adequate flexibility in price entering, here share the info in detail

    Header conditions are entered manually in order processing. R/3 includes the following header conditions:

    - Percent discount (HA00)

    - Absolute discount (HB00)

    - Freight (HD00)

    - Order value (HM00)

    Header Condition: If this condition is marked as a header condition, it is possible to enter the condition type in the header condition screen. Checks for changing the condition manually are unaffected by this.

    Group Condition: Group conditions are helpfull incase of discounts. If group condition is selected then the discount percentage or quantity is applicable for the total sum of the quantity in the PO for those materials belonging to the same material group. Suppose if two materials of same matl grp have discounts for 100 qty and above but in PO if the two matls are bieng procured for 50 qty then they cant avail discounts but if group condition is selected then the sum of the quantity of both matl of same matl group is considered (50 + 50) and discount can be availed for 100 qty.

    Further Group condition: Indicates whether the system calculates the basis for the scale value from more than one item in the document.

    The nature of header condition is that whatever value you are giving in sale order / billing, line item wise, it will be distributed proportionately.

    If you access V/06 and the header condition type, you can see that the condition type

    - does not have any access sequence

    - field Group condition is selected

    Normally Freight Header condition like condition type "HD00" is calculated on the basis of weight. This is a Manual condition and you have to enter it in the header screen. It will be proportionately distributed on each item on the basis of weight. If you will uncheck the group condition field, the same freight amount will be copied to each item, possibly irrespective of different weight which may not be logical

    hope useful.
