Correct way to capture freight costs

Posted on by 32
Hi,
 
Currently we have to organize and pay for the freight from our overseas suppliers through the likes of FedEx etc.
 
Our process to pay for freight is to raise a purchase order on the freight company.  We pay the freight company before we physically receive the item.
 
Once the goods from the supplier have been receipted in BC, we open the freight PO and then link this cost via the item charge assignment to the posted purchase receipt from the suppliers PO.
 
This is a very manual process and as we are getting busier it is getting harder to manage.  It is a very manual process that I was hoping could be automated.
 
Is there a better way of managing this process?  I was hoping there was a way to either link the purchase orders.

    @Andrew BC.  Apologies didn't realise I was posting in the incorrect forum.

    @Colby, Thanks. I overlooked the BC abbreviation in the text.
     
    @Ctrail, Can you indicate if you are using Dynamics 365 BC or Dynamics 365 SCM?

    You posted in the D365 F&SC / SCM forum, but I think your question is actually in regards to using D365 BC / Business Central?  If that's the case, Andre's recommendation is unfortunately not applicable.

    Hi Andre,
     
    Your post certainly sounds like the correct way to go.  Unfortunately, I do not have access to try it out.  Marked as correct answer.

    Hi Ctrail,
     
    There is a landed cost functionality available that can help you with this process. Have a look at the features by start reading the documentation on Microsoft Learn: Landed cost module - Supply Chain Management | Dynamics 365 | Microsoft Learn
