DIEN or TRAD material type for freight to be invoiced to customer?


Hi guys,

I am asked by QA to maintain Financial views (Accounting&Costing) for a material that is cost of freight that we want to invoice to the customer. They would like to register this material as TRAD, but my problem is that I then have to determine a st.price and a valuation class for this material, and this material could possibly be stock which doesn't make any sense to me. Do you know the implications for this in Accounting, if I do as I am asked? How have you solved this issue with freight to be invoiced? I want to ask them to create this material as type DIEN, which would mean that I don't need to maintain any views, but they say they are not sure that is correct either.

Please help.
