How to handle shipping costs for commercial business

on 3/5/15, 6:05 PM 371 views


We have a commercial business set up with OpenERP6.  We have about 15 cities where we deliver products if the client so chooses.  Alternatively the client can also opt to pick up.  Our deliveries can be as follows:

1.  Own truck

2.  Via Courier

3.  Via Private Shipping Company

2 & 3 are quite similar but each option can have different costing structure.  Let's consider 1 of the 15 cities, the Capital; it could cost $50 per km in the company truck, $100 per km via courier or $75 per km in the Private Shipping Company.

The Private Shipping Company might even charge us based on km or weight as well.

What would be the best option to handle this?

Which options does OpenERP handle by default/OOTB?
