Shipping costs have risen in the last two years because of a multitude of reasons such as a growing world-wide demand for goods and the fluctuation of commodity prices. It’s essential to keep these transport cost items up to date in your CERM MIS.
Increasing shipping costs are inevitable and probably have increased since the last time you’ve imported your custom transport rates in CERM MIS. It’s equally possible that the lead times for ‘transport per zone’ are no longer applicable.
Since your sales prices are (partially) determined based on these shipping costs – and the shipping date is calculated with these delivery times – it’s essential to keep these transport cost items up to date in your CERM MIS.
