Sale Orders 

NameDescription
Sale Order Charge Scheme

The default method of charging used

Charge SchemeDescription
StandardCharges Per-Order Fees, Handling Fees Etc
Percentage of ValueCharges % of Sale Order Value. For instance if the value of the Sale Order is $200, and the % of Sale Order Value is 5%, a $10 charge would be applied for picking / packing.

Sale Order ChargeA Per-Order Administration Fee
Urgent Sale Order ChargeThe additional charges to be applied to the order if the customer selects that the order is Urgent
Outbound SKU chargeCharge for each different SKU (different product) added to the order. For example, picking 100 boxes of one product would normally be faster than picking 1 box each of 100 products, so the SKU charge is implemented to cater for this.
The SKU charge is counted as the number of different products added to the order.
Number of Unique Products x Outbound SKU Charge = SKU Charges
Minimum SKU Charge

If the picking (handling) fees for a particular SKU (Product Code) come out to less than this amount, the Minimum SKU charge will be applied and increase the charge for the Picking.

For example, if you have a Minimum SKU Charge of $5.

And then you pick 1 x Product SKU (ITEM-12345), which would be a picking fee of $2.00 - the Minimum SKU Charge of $5 will apply and add another $3.00 to the picking fees.
However, if you picked 3 x Product SKU (ITEM-12345), which would be a picking fee of $6.00 - the Minimum SKU charge will not get applied.

The Minimum SKU Charge applies "PER SKU". So if you have two products being picked, you may end up with two additional charges if each product does not meet the Minimum SKU charge.

Outbound Pallet Wrap ChargeThe charges for wrapping a pallet on outbound
Sale Order Minimum ChargeThe minimum charge for a Sale Order. For example, if the minimum charge is set to $10, and all other charges added together come to $7, then the minimum charge would push the total price up to $10.
Sale Order Parser Charging Enabled

This provides an override to the way in which Warehouse Handling Fees and Stock Selection are calculated when importing a Sale Order via Parser. Under this scenario the picking charges will be calculated based on the Units of Measure specified in the import file.

For example, if a client requested that 6 Units of a product should be sent, and that product has a conversion which is 6 Units Per Carton, then normally the system would charge a Carton Picking Fee. However, with Sale Order Parser Charging Enabled, the system will force the charges to be for 6 units.
If the same client then sent another order requesting 1 Carton, the system would charge 1 carton pick instead.

Note that when Sale Order Parser Charging is turned on, any changes made to the order after it has been imported will not automatically update the picking fees for the order - they need to be manually modified.

Storage Charges

NameDescription
Storage Charge DaysThe number of days used for Storage Charging. Default is 7 days, as Storage is typically charged Weekly, but you could set this to a value such as 1 day to calculate storage charges on a daily basis.
Pallet RentalIf you charge clients an additional fee for Pallet Rental such as CHEP for example, this can be entered here. This fee will apply for every warehouse location that is in use for the Storage Charge Days nominated. e.g. if 7 then this pallet rental value will be charged once every 7 days.
Double Charge Storage

New storage charges will be applied even if the location was charged for existing storage. This means that if a location was in use at the start of the storage period, and then new stock arrived and went into the same location, it'll be charged again as 'New Storage'. This also applies if the location was in use at the beginning of the storage period, then went empty (stock went out), and then more stock was put into the location. By enabling 'Double Charge Storage', you'll charge the location once for the existing product, and again for the new stock coming in.

Charge Type Product OptionBoth Products and Warehouse Locations have a product type which controls the Storage Rates used. If, for example, you have an ambient product but temporarily store it in a Chilled location, you would probably still want to charge the Ambient Rate. In this circumstance, the Charge Product Type should be set to 'Products', as the Products product type is used to determine the charges. However, if you operate a warehouse which is all ambient, but you charge different for Racked Locations vs Block Stacking (for example), you would want to charge based on the Warehouse Locations Product Type, rather than the Products Product Type - as all products will be 'Ambient' but you may have some locations setup as 'Block Stack' or 'Racked'.


ProductsCharge Storage based on the Products "Product Type"
Warehouse LocationCharge Storage based on the Warehouse Locations "Product Type"
Storage Period Minimum ChargeThe minimum charge for a Storage Period. For example, if the minimum charge is set to $600, and all storage charges added together come to $500, then the minimum charge would push the total price up to $600.


Transport Charges

Consignments

NameDescription
Consignment Charge Scheme

The default method of charging used for new Consignments. Note: You can modify this manually on a per-consignment basis, but by default consignments added through the web interface, or imported from a manifest will use this Charge Scheme

Charge SchemeDescription
Use RatesRates are caclulated based on the Rate Cards within the Customer Charges. Typically these are based upon Suburb / Postcode. See: How Transport Rates are Calculated
HourlyRates are calculated based on an Hourly Fee. Number of hours must be entered manually, however a default rate can be stored to save time.
Percentage Of ValueCharges % of Consignments Value. For instance if the value of the Consignment is $200, and the % of Consignment Value is 5%, a $10 charge would be applied for picking / packing.
Percentage Of IncomeNote: This is used only for Expense Calculation when the Customer Charge is being used by a Supplier.
This method allows Consignments Expense to be calculated as a Percentage of the Income. For example, if you paid contractors 60% of your sell-rate, you would use Percentage of Income at 60%
Flat RateConsignments will be priced manually on a Consignment-by-Consignment Basis.
Distance basedCharges are calculated based on the distance travelled by the vehicle in order to delivery the consignment from Pickup address to OnForwarder/Delivery address
Consignment Rate Per HourDefault per-hour rate used if the Consignment is using Hourly Charge Scheme
Consignment Rate Per Km/MileDefault per-(Km/Mile) rate used if the Consignment is using "Distance Based" Charge Scheme
Consignment COD Collection ChargeCharges for collecting Cash On Delivery. Note: Cash On Delivery is charged when a "Cash On Delivery" is saved against the consignment
Consignment Group Charging

Whether to charge Groups, or the Individual Consignments within Groups. For example, you may have a two consignments of 1 carton each which have been grouped together into a single consignment of 2 cartons. You can choose whether to charge the Group itself, or the Children within the Group. This is important if you have minimum delivery charges, as a group would incur only 1 minimum, however the two consignments would incur two minimums.

YesCharge Consignment Groups
NoCharge Individual Consignments
Consignment Invoice Level

At which stage a Consignment will be Invoiced to the customer.

"Completed" means any final delivery status (ie: it cannot progress further): "Delivered", "Collected", or any of the Error Statuses such as "Lost", "No Stock / Never Arrived" etc. 

Invoice Regardless of Delivery StatusConsignments will be added to Invoices each Invoicing period regardless of the status of the Consignment. The potential issue here is that Consignments booked on a Friday for pickup Monday would be Invoiced over the weekend.
Invoice Only once with On Forwarder or CompletedConsignments will only be added to an invoice once they're at "With On Forwarder", or any of the "Completed" statuses listed above.
Only Invoice Once Completed
Invoice once in WarehouseConsignments must be "In Warehouse" status or higher. This prevents the issue of charging Consignments which are booked in advance if "Invoice Regardless of Delivery Status" was selected.
Charge for ReturnsAs per Consignment Types, should "Return" type consignments be charged to the customer or ignored.
Consignment Minimum ChargeThe minimum charge for a Consignment. For example, if the minimum charge is set to $10, and all other charges added together come to $7, then the minimum charge would push the total price up to $10.
Apply Fuel Levy to Minimum ChargesWhether fuel levy should be applied to Minimum Charges. Using the example above, should Fuel Levy be applied to the additional $3 charged.


Manifests

Manifest charges are soon being removed as their rates can be implemented using Pickup Consignments.


Fuel Levy

Fuel Levy works by the idea of having 1 Fuel Levy across the board, then having an offset to that by customer, and finally a fixed or again offset levy by rate zone in rate card. Idea is to change the Master Fuel Levy once easily and everything adjusts, say you had a customer that was 1% different you can still change the master and they'd all work fine. If that doesn't work then you fix it by customer or by rate zone but its a lot harder to update easily. Search Fuel Levy in Search Anything to find menu.

Different levels:

Fuel Levy (Master %) → Customer Charges (Offest % or Fixed) → Rate Card Rate Zones specific.


NameDescription
Fuel Levy OffsetThe amount of difference that should be applied to the standard Fuel Levy.
For example, if the current fuel levy is 12%, and you want a customer to always be 2% higher than your normal fuel levy, you would insert a Fuel Levy Offset of 2%
If you wanted them to track 2% below the standard Fuel Levy, you would put in an offset of -2% 
Ignore Base SettingIf you just want to fix the fuel levy for a customer, then setting "Ignore Base Setting" to Yes will cause the Fuel Levy Offset to be applied to a base fuel levy of 0.
For example, if you want to charge a 7% fuel levy regardless of what your overall Fuel Levy is, then you would set "Ignore Base Setting" to Yes, and Fuel Levy Offset to 7%.


Miscellaneous Charges

Note: for these to appear on the Summary sheet sent to customers, this option under the customer invoice settings must be enabled. To find, go to Customers, Edit Customer, Invoice Tab, then scroll down.
