We are not using WMS (yet). How do you handle shipping pallets and pallet costs? We have a mix of stock items that are finished goods and BOM-based goods so doing fixed overheads I don’t think would work.
We have 7 different pallet sizes we have as stock items since we track inventory on them, cost and if we charge the customer for it. We also have mixed item pallets so while we know item X is 60 to a pallet, Adding Item A, B, C, D and E may not be 60 to a pallet any more due to variations in size of the box, etc.
With our current system we have 1 stock item pallet. The sales person enters the sales order, adds the stock items and if we charge for the pallet they enter a price. When the warehouse picks/ships the order they add the pallet item to the sales order at $0 (unless sales person added it already with a price) and the quantity of pallets used. That follows through to the invoice and shows the pallet quantity and how much they were charged (if anything).
With Acumatica we have a little different shipping workflow. Essentially the “create shipments” step isn’t there on our old system. In this process the only way I can see to “add” the quantity of pallets is to delete the shipment, add the pallets, create the shipment again then process it through. Any other methods to do this?
