Handling freight costs on PO

I’m curious to learn how other clients are using the system to communicate the freight amount to the Receiving department.  

Here is the use case:

  1. The Purchasing team creates a PO and sends to the vendor.  The goods on the PO will ship via Collect with one of our own freight carriers, so the supply vendor will not invoice us the freight. 
  2. The purchasing team knows the amount of freight for this order.  

We’re trying to figure out how to communicate the freight amount within the system so that when our Receiving department receives the order, they know how much to process the Landed Cost transaction for.  

Currently, we’re listing a non-stock FREIGHT item on the PO so that it transfers to the Receipt document.  However, this causes issues to the Accounting team because it creates a receipt accrual for the non-stock FREIGHT item for a vendor that will not be billing us the freight.  

Thanks for any feedback you can provide!
