Landed Cost Software for Distributors

Comprehensive Functionality for Importers to Manage Landed Costs

Landed Cost Tracking for Importers

Today’s global economy often requires distributors to source goods from overseas manufacturers. Many distributors’ supply chains involve contracting with manufacturers in Asia, arranging sea freight from Asia, port clearance at US ports, and then arranging for multimodal or intermodal transportation by rail or truck to distributors’ warehouses. Accolent ERP distributor software tracks unlimited Landed Cost types to accurately record and capitalize all costs associated with these types of supply chains. With Accolent ERP you will be able to eliminate lower-than-expected margins on imported goods due to Landed Costs that were incorrectly accounted for.

Unlimited Landed Cost Types

Accolent ERP allows you to set up unlimited types of Landed Costs such as Ocean Freight, Ocean Cargo Insurance, Freight Forwarder Charges, Clearing Charges, Customs Duties and Tariffs, Port Charges, Demurrage and Detention Charges, Multimodal Charges, Drayage Charges, Intermodal Charges and Local Delivery Charges. Optionally create Landed Cost Overhead Charges to account for exchange rate movements, LOC charges and documentation costs. You can estimate these expected costs at the time of placing a purchase order so the goods can be quoted to the customer. Update these expected costs continuously as the goods move through the supply chain and store these updated costs with the PO.

Track POs through the Supply Chain

Record the Manufacturer Acknowledgement, Manufacturer’s Ex-Works Date, Container No, Shipping Carrier, Shipping Vessel, Departure Date, Departure Port, Destination Port, Arrival Date, Clearing Agent and other data with the PO. Record the Incoterms applicable to the shipment. Update all of the shipment data continuously as your goods move through the supply chain. This data is available from and can be updated from the Accolent ERP List POs screen so you can get an accurate picture of where your goods are at all times. This improves transparency, reduces costs of port storage and minimizes supply chain snafus.

Record Landed Costs and Apportion

Receive the PO and apportion the Landed Costs between several POs if needed. Support for HTSUS import tariffs. Automatically allocate the total PO Landed Costs to individual product line items on the basis of HTS import duty code, extended price, weight or cubes. The costs from the manufacturer/vendor grossed up by the allocated Landed Costs are automatically updated and capitalized into inventory for every purchase order line item. Using the Accolent ERP Landed Costs functionality reduces errors and eliminates the risk of unaccounted for purchasing costs not being considered prior to completing a sale.
