NMFC code mandatory to print bill of lading

Posted on by 7
Hi there
 
Can anyone explain why NMFC code is mandatory field for US in D365 when using advanced warehousing and TMS, we find it is mandatory to produce the bill of lading for example. When talking to our logistics team in US we find that in reality this field is hardly ever required (we are transporting chemicals) when interacting with our carriers, therefore it would be a considerable overhead in terms of admin to look up all the codes for all the products which we sell.

    I agree we could modify the report to make it optional or put a dummy value in it, though I never like putting dummy values in fields as it feels like misusing the field, however I was wondering why Microsoft would make it mandatory when it's not a legal requirement to have a value in that field for example.

    I don't know why it is mandatory. Perhaps you could get the report modified, so that it is not mandatory, or load a dummy code for all Products.

    Hi, yes it's D365 F&O that I refer to, is there another section where I could better place my question?

    Which D365 app are you using? This forum is about D365 in general, while your question seems to be about a particular product. Is it F&O?
