Shipment Methods

Some additional fields have been added to the ‘Shipment Methods’ Page which need to be considered when setting up Clever Shipping Agent Integration. All of the additional fields will be used when processing International Consignments.

Duty Paid By Field:

When selecting a Shipment Method on a Consignment, this field will be used to define who is responsible for paying the Duty amounts for the Consignment. The options to select from are:

Sender – The Duty amounts will be paid by the Sender.

Recipient – The Duty amounts will be paid by the recipient.

Third Party – The Duty amounts will be paid by a Third Party. The account number for the third party should be defined in the ‘Duty Account No’ field against the ‘Shipping Agent’.

NOTE - The account number defined here should be the account number that Customs will use to charge the duty amounts against rather than an account number from Business Central.
