Ship Via Code File Maintenance

Ship Via Code File Maintenance

Application Overview

 

When you are setting up your Customer file, you will be asked to enter for each customer a Ship Via Code.  This code will designate the usual method that you use for shipping purchased goods to this cus­tomer.  For example, some usual Ship Via methods and codes that you might use to represent them are:

 

                        U                                  UPS

                        T                                  Truck                    

                        F                                  Federal Express

                        R                                  Railway

                        A                                  Air Freight

 

Then, since you have associated one of these shipping methods with each customer during entry of customer orders in the Customer Order Processing package, the program will know what the usual means of ship­ping to the customer is.

 

It is a good idea for you to define all of the most frequent methods that you use for shipping to your customers.  For example, if you use several trucking firms to deliver your goods, you will probably want to define a Ship Via code for each firm.  This will make it possible for you to be as accurate as possible later on during the entry of orders.
