In SAP, when buying goods, you can account for the cost of shipping in the purchase order by adding a line for freight to the overall Purchase Order (PO), or by using Freight Conditions.
Freight Conditions have the advantage of being invisible to the Goods Receiver while being visible to the AP Processor. Freight conditions can apply to the overall PO, or be different for each line, and can be entered as a fixed amount or as a percentage of the order value.
In this guide, following activities are explained for the management of Freight Conditions in SAP-MM,
- Including freight conditions in the purchase order header – ME21N
- Including freight conditions at the purchase line item level
