Defining freight terms

You can define common codes used when associating a freight term to a Carrier.

A freight term identifies how transportation costs are calculated.

The default freight terms of Sterling Order Management are:

  • Cost Insurance and Freight (CIF) - The freight cost is completely paid by either the Seller, the Enterprise, or the Hub.
  • Cost and Freight (CFR) - The freight cost is paid by the Buyer and either the Seller, the Enterprise, or the Hub.
  • Free On Board (FOB) - The freight cost is paid by the Buyer.

You can use the Freight Terms tab for creating, modifying, and deleting freight terms.
