Freight costs in SRM-SUS (unplanned costs in USA)

We are working for a Spanish customer that have some subsidiaries in USA, and we are having some issues with the freight costs model.

In our customer, the freight costs are unplanned costs since they don´t know how much is gonna be the cost until they create the invoice. Also, in their corporate SAP model, they do not allow to have big tolerances between the purchase order amount and the invoice amount.

We proposed to estimate this cost in the purchase order, by using a condition price… but the customer don’t want to show that estimation to the vendor and this is showed in SRM-SUS


  • the costs are unplanned costs
  • they doesn’t allow big tolerances
  • they want to distribute the cost between the invoice items, and this cost will go to the same GL account than the material
  • also, they commented that sometimes the material items have taxes, but those taxes doesn’t apply to the freight cost
  • they use SRM-SUS and the collaborative PO functionality

What can we do?

Best regards
