The freight charge appears on the Final tab of order screens and enables you to add charges for freight and specify terms.
If you want, you can add your freight cost even if that cost isn't being passed down to customers. This then tracks the freight cost so you can deduct it from sales commissions when you generate the salesman commission statement.
* Default Freight Terms are pulled from Customer Master. Orders require freight for these customers unless the Ship Via is set to Freight Prepaid.
* Company Master> Suspend Invoice with No Freight Billed: If the order was set to Prepaid & Bill or Collect, the order will be suspended in the billing batch if you fail to enter a freight amount.
