On the sales order you can put in Shipping Method - Shipping Agent, Service Type (Overnight, 2day, Ground, Etc). 

How is this handled on Purchase Orders to let the vendor know how we would like our product shipped and it be present on the purchase order.

    Hi, Shipment Method Code also exists in the purchase order, but Agent and Agent Service do not. So you need to do a small customization if need.


    Sales Order:


    Purchase Order:


    Hope this will help.

    This is the method that we use 

    In PO BC has Shipment Method. You can define a different code here and then enter the description for the code. The description shows up on top of the PO. Basically you can write a description like: ship 2nd day using UPS account XXXX. 

    I hope this help
