E1: 49: Can Package Weight be Excluded from Freight Charges During Shipping ? (Doc ID 2780367.1)

How does JDE recommend adjusting the weight of shipments when packaging material is involved?

Example 1: Up to 3 items can go on a single pallet weighing 60 lbs. If there is an order for 5 items, the total weight is the 5 items plus 120 lbs for the two pallets. That weight is enough to cause a significant freight cost increase. Customer just enters the item weights in the system but not the pallet because of the 1 to 3 item scenario. Putting an extra 20 lbs on the item weight to account for the pallet in case of an order for 1 or 2 items then the load could be under weigh

Example 2: UPS small package. When selling parts weighing far less than the packaging. If a part weighs 1/4 lb and the package weighs 1 lb the total weight is 1 1/4 lbs which is significantly more than 1/4 lb . The freight table is looking at 1/4 lb weight, not 1 1/4 lb. Again the item cannot be set up with a weight of 1 1/4 lbs, because if selling 4 of these parts the true weight is 2 lbs because they easily fix in a box. If that parts weight in the system is at 1/1/4 lbs the freight table would be looking at 5 lbs.
