You can define one or more extra product which stands for transport cost. In your regular sales order you can then add an extra sales line for one of these transport cost products. An other possibility is you make the extra sales line and define your transport cost on the fly making your order. If you do so no extra modules are needed, it is al standard.

what about the payment, I should pay the freight price to another company, how can I handle invoicing? and how can I apply the transportation fee to my product's cost price?

And there is a more realistic case for companies doing import/export: Two manufacturers send goods in a truck, this means two supplier invoices. The company gets one invoice from a foreign transportation company and one from a domestic transportation company. The company gets one more invoice from the agency that handles customs paper work. Altogether 2 invoices from the manufacturers share the costs of the 3 other invoices. These costs have to be distributed among the stockable products of the manufacturers' invoices and cost prices adjusted accordingly.

How to handle this?

@Pouya Maleki. What you ask is far more complicated than the original question which I answered.

I think you are looking for a landed cost module where the received cost represents both the purchase price and the costs such as freight. We have such a module for 6.0 (a very complex module since our clients requirements were very complex) but have not yet ported to 7.0 and realistically it will be some time away. Not sure if anyone else has dome something similar.

thanks for the infor' dear Kevin.i'll check it
