Sales Freight Calculation

Summary of Requirement

ACME Co. has 17 locations across the state, and a manufacturing facility which produces electrical poles.

When poles are sold, a user manually calculates the estimated Freight Amount and Number of Loads based on knowing:

1) The location of the customer and distance from the manufacturing facility

2) The average weight of each type of pole

3) The cost per mile to transport a given weight

4) The average load capacity of a truck

The freight amount is entered into the Sales Transaction Entry “Freight” field, and the Comment is used to store a note with the Number of Loads, Load Rate, and Freight Cost.

ACME Co. would like the software to perform this task automatically.
