Creating a New Freight Policy

Create the “FT” (Freight Terms) codes record similar to the one in the screen shot below.

The screen shot below defines an order that’s:

Field #2 and field #3 are the same warehouse code

Field #4 is not payment type A=ACH, C=COD, or R=Credit Card (in other words the order is Open Account)

Field #5 is not a backorder release order

Field #6 is shipping via a ship-via code that contains a “UP” in field #9 of the ship-via code

Field #7 means the order must be using freight terms “01″

Field #8 means the order will be evaluated on the order’s total value (TV)

Field #9 is the value threshold ($0.00) to be used to evaluate the order’s total value

Field #10 represents the dollar amount or percentage to be added to the order for freight

Field #11 is the DC code (700/S) to be used when adding the freight charges to the order

Field #12 means add actual charges to the order and use the DC code identified in field #10

No other criteria is defined in the sample screen shot so if all the previous criteria is met then the actual charges will added using DC code 700/S.

The following screen shot defines an additional level for the total value of the order.

Field #9 establishes a $150.00 order threshold

Field #11 is the DC code (700/S) to be used when adding the freight charges to the order

Field #12 means add actual charges to the order and use the DC code identified in field #10

Field #13 means there are product codes associated with a “general string” codes record FRT-POLICY_PRDA that are “exempt” from the add-on rules that were established in fields 10, 11, an 12.

Field #14 represents the dollar amount or percentage to be added to the order for freight if the order contains product codes from the “general string” codes record FRT-POLICY_PRDA

Field #15 identifies the DC code to use if the order contains product codes from the “general string” codes record FRT-POLICY_PRDA

Field #16 identifies whether to use actual charges if the order contains product codes from the “general string” codes record FRT-POLICY_PRDA

No other criteria is defined in the sample screen shot so if all the previous criteria is met and DOES NOT contain any items in product codes from the “general string” codes record FRT-POLICY_PRDA then the actual charges will added using DC code 705/S. If the order DOES contain items in product codes from the “general string” codes record FRT-POLICY_PRDA then the actual charges will be added using DC code 700/S.

Additional “PF” codes record should be added to address different pay types (field #4) and backorders (field #5) as dictated by your respective freight policy.
