Program: Disposition loads / P49660
If a load is shipped with a load type that allows for in-transit inventory, and a quantity is not delivered and is retained in the vehicle and returned, currently no defined procedure exists to record charges for this return leg, so that the carrier is paid for the quantity on the return trip. The best workaround is to add a manual freight adjustment using the P4981 program, after Freight Update R4981 has been executed.
Requesting the following be considered, in order to refine the process:
Where a freight disposition occurs and items are left on the vehicle, automatically generate an ‘adjustment’ in the form of a non-stock item on a sales order. The order and line type will be present in the 49/SD so that it creates a shipment with a 'special' MOT. As such the users can manually enter the freight charge agreed, but equally, it would be possible to route and rate this if that is appropriate. This enables the agreed freight charge to be updated by R4981 and so be updated to AP for autopay.
From there it is a simple process to cancel the line/shipment where the Carrier rejects the charges or where no payment is due (for example where the Carrier returns it because they didn't follow the correct procedure - perhaps went to the wrong address or couldn't find the address or similar), or the shipment could be approved and continue through the processing to create the freight payment.
