There is an opportunity to make the transfer process with landed cost more efficient in view that transfers between warehouses are very often a repeating process and using predefined landed cost data set up in the auto cost.

It can be a typical scenario for customers to have multiple shipments daily between for example, production sites and offsite warehouses, and the only reason to create a voyage would be to get the estimated cost posted for the receipt transaction so true cost are reflected on the receiving site.

A solution to this could be to add a parameter to post landed cost where it is maintained for cost area "Transfer Order Line" without the need of a voyage being created. When set up at cost area “Transfer Order Line” , the voyage cost are present for the transfer order lines but just don’t get posted, so part of the proposed solution is already existing.

The benefits of adding this functionality.

  • The transfer process can be highly automated, and this would also enable the landed cost handling to be automated and not require user interaction.
  • It would eliminate risk that cost are missed as there is no step to enforce that a voyage is created where landed cost are used, and if missed the cost are not captured and posted for the receipt transaction.
