Workarounds idea(s) for outbound freight (or similar) costs related to sales orders

Received Response


Currently the functionality to interface shipping costs to cost management is not supported. However to understand the real customer profitability, there should be some solution to allocate outbound shipping or similar costs to the customer and sales order.

Content (required):

The best work around I've come up with is creating supporting references for customers and orders in the SLA and doing the shipment cost allocations using subledger journal entry. However, this approach very unsophisticated, requires extra manual work and disables any standard reporting tools from Cost Management as SLA supporting reference balances need to be used for reporting and therefore all reports are custom and require extra complexity due to including SLA in the data model.

Howdy, Stranger!
