Hi @MComan62 

 

Adding to above documentation link provided, one can create a Landed cost document setting up your Subcontractor as Landed cost vendor to account for material handling/unloading charges in this case. On landed cost document, one can add required PO receipt (for the material) to link. 

There is no option available to create a PO for Landed cost vendor for the Landed cost and then process it further or link the charges to the original material receipt document.

Hope this helps,

Regards,

Thank you Vijay.  The customer is wanting a Landed Cost PO in addition to the PO they are using to acquire the goods.  I am wondering if anyone else has ran into this issue and found a good solution.  

This is an issue we have recently encountered as well.  Our prospect imports goods for sale in large volumes.  Each of the purchase orders in the system equals a container on the water.  During passage salespeople will begin selling product allocating portions of the PO for sales orders.  In order to avoid selling at a loss, this prospect would like to be able to add landed costs to the PO during transit as costs are incurred and be able to present the new unit costs to the salespeople as they are negotiating sales pricing for these commodities.  They do not want to receive the items on the water as there may be quality or damage issues that will make the container quantity short.  We too would like to know if anyone else has solved this issue.  Any thoughts on this are greatly appreciated.
