Freight Companies

If your company is one that uses courier or haulage companies to deliver goods to your Customers, to receive goods into stock or to move stock from one Location to another, you can record those companies in this setting. When you enter a Delivery, Goods Receipt, Returned Goods to Supplier or Stock Movement, you can specify a Freight Company on the 'Freight' card, and the information from this setting can be printed on documentation. In the case of the Delivery, this is a legal requirement in some countries.

Click the [Settings] button in the Master Control panel or select 'Settings' from the File menu to open the 'Settings' list. Double-click 'Freight Companies' in the list. The 'Freight Companies: Browse' window lists the Freight Companies that have already been entered: double-click one to modify it or click [New] to create a new record. When the record is complete, click the [Save] button in the Button Bar to save changes and close it using the close box, or click the close box if you don't want to save changes.
