Freight Cost Pre-Calculation and Best Carrier Determination

Based on SAP standard freight pricing or freight charge rates in it.x-press, the carrier determination can be executed in the sales order, delivery or shipment. Flexible grouping of carriers, using SAP standard fields and Shipping Options in it.x-press, can be used to compare carriers. it.transportation optimization makes it possible to transfer the pre-calculated freight charge to the sales order pricing procedure. Using SAP standard material master data for alternative unit of measure, the expected number of shipping units can be dynamically calculated.

Extended and Flexible Shipping Point Determination

Improve your internal lead times and delivery scheduling with accurate goods issue date. Using additional SAP standard fields available in the field catalog, the proposed shipping point is determined at the Stock Transport Order or Sales Order. In addition, grouping SAP standard fields minimizes the number of entries.

Accurate and Optimized Route Determination

Optimize transit times and deliveries with the accurate delivery date. With more than 20 additional SAP standard fields available in the field catalog, the route can be determined either at the Stock Transport Order, Sales Order or Delivery. Using the validity start and end date, it is possible to prepare the future route determination.
