We are currently sending out our purchase orders with no freight charges, unless we know the charge up front. If we know the cost of the freight charge, we are adding it as a line item to the purchase order with our internal coding. If we do not have the cost of the freight charge, we wait for an invoice. Once the invoice is received, accounts payable forwards the freight charge to procurement which adds a line for the freight to the purchase order.
How are other users handling freight charges?
If you have the inventory module you can't put freight as a separate line item on po or the cost basis of the item is incorrect. You need to use the misc charge code.
We use the Freight/tax/misc field on the PO. From the AP invoice it allocates those cost. Down side is if the vendor doesn't bill us for the freight on the same invoice you can't just pull the freight over to a voucher.
