Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

Need to understand how the freight costs assigned at ship confirm are prorated across order lines. Searching My Oracle Support and Oracle documentation shows:

"Pro-Rating the Costs
If you enter Costs in ship confirm at the Delivery Level, the costs that transfer back to the lines in Order Management are pro-rated to all the lines of the delivery, based on weight (if present) or volume (if present) or quantity shipped on each line."

But this is pretty generic. What is the exact formula so we can better manage our freight and expectations of what is applied on each line?
