Vendor charges Freight for Drop Ship on PO.

Auto shipment created for drop ship receipt on sales order:

Sales order gets completed upon auto receipt and no opportunity to charge back freight to customer on sales order:

Freight can be added manually to Sales Invoice before release but the freight charge backs can be missed which happens most of the time.

Any way to have freight populate on the Sales Order upon release of receipt?

@nvadera7 , can you clarify how vendor freight is going to be recorder in drop ship PO? as a line type of Freight type?

Anyway, there is no  ready out-of-the box functionality to transfer freight from drop ship po to so or invoice, but I believe it can be done via a business event or a  customization - 

  1. you can enter sales orders with Ship Terms having ‘Freight Source Based On’ = Order and ‘Override Freight Price’ = true
  2.  when drop ship po is create and released, copy the freight amount from PO to the SOOrder.CuryFreightAmt field
  3. Then this freight will be copied to invoice

I believe it could be no issue to set up business event for this, Let me know if further advice here is needed 

Any of suggestions here? We pass on the billed freight charges to our customers on all Drop-Ship orders. It would be great to be able to enter that freight amount on a PO Receipt and have that billed to the customer on the invoice when prepared from the Sales Order. Thanks!

What if you do not know the freight amount until after you receive the vendor invoice?

Thank you for the recommendation. Will review best option.

Thanks for asking these questions! I’m currently how to try to design this in a much better way than originally planned. Did anyone get any feedback not posted or discover a way to accommodate a freight charge on a drop ship purchase order and then have the choice to have that added to the original sales order?
