What is the difference between freight costs in pricing procedure for a sales document and shipment costs in shipment documents. Arent they meant for the same thing. Why do we have to create them separately.
freight charges in the sales pricing procedure may be represented by condition type KF00 (standard). this condition type is a surcharge to your customer, meaning there is an inflow into your company. this surcharge may be manually entered (if configuration allows this) in the condition tabs of your sales order or this could automatically be entered if the appropriate condition records (via VK11 or VK31) have been created.
the shipment costs in shipment documents is what your company is billed or quoted by your forwarder, shipper or other transport related agent. the shipment cost data will be used by the system to calculate and settle shipment costs. when you have freight condition records (via TK11), purchase-vendor records and if all route/connection point/etc. settings correct, all shipment cost data will be determined when you do shipment cost document creation. you may also manually enter cost items, depending on the configuration.
hope this helped. is so, will appreciate reward.
