Freight Zone File Maintenance
This is one of four files required for processing freight calculation in Customer Order Processing. They are part of Accounts Receivable Maintenance due to their relationship with A/R Customers and Ship Via Codes.
Freight Zone File Maintenance allows users to set up a Freight Zone File that contains all the information about locations associated with zone numbers for all the modes of the carriers.
This is a predefined file containing zip codes, 91001 to 91899, associated with zone numbers for all the modes of UPS, RPS, Federal Express, and U.S. Postal Service. It also includes a check flag to verify at what zip codes the service is available for each mode of the carrier. If you are not in this area, most of the setup should meet suit your needs. However, you should print an edit list, and change the necessary portions to meet your specifications.
