Business value

Third-party logistics providers (3PLs) can now submit voyage, container, and folio records, update estimated costs, track control records, and do vendor cost invoice allocations directly to the landed cost module using the transaction entities. This saves time and improves accuracy by ensuring that this information doesn't have to be keyed in manually for companies using landed cost to manage their inbound processes.

Feature details

The landed cost module helps businesses streamline inbound shipping operations by providing complete financial and logistical control over imported freight, from the manufacturer to the warehouse. Transaction data entities for landed cost enable external data sources (such as freight forwarder services) to create voyages and costs, and to update container tracking records.

Supported operations include:

  • Create and update voyage, shipping container, and folio records for existing inbound order lines.
  • Create and update estimated costs for each cost area.
  • Create and update shipping container activity records to capture the start date, estimated end date, and actual end date for each leg of the container's journey.
  • Create vendor cost invoice allocations.
