Booking fixed freight into inventory account at Goods Receive


Hi all,

I have a question about booking fixed freight cost at GR time. My client orders trucks from a different vendor to pick up PO items. Therefore, at GR time, the cost of freight is booked into the inventory account regardless to how many items on the PO have been received(they are paying freight per truck). For example:

case 1: If PO has 2 items ,and at Goods Receive both items arrive. We book the cost of freight $1000 into the inventory account along with the two items.

case 2: If PO has 2 items, but at Goods Receive only one item arrives. We book the full cost of freight $1000 into the inventory account along with the item received. Next time when the 2nd item arrives, we will then book another freight $1000. The freight does not decrease because only one item is delivered.

I have been playing with freight conditions but I don't find anything that meets the requirement. Basically, all the conditions distribute the condition values based on the calculation types defined. I am looking for something that does not distribute the cost and gets booked at GR in full amount. Maybe I am not supposed to look at conditions at all.

The business scenario makes sense to me, but I don't know how to handle it with SAP. If you have any idea, please let me know.
