Defining Shipping Methods
The Shipping Method is a QuickCode used to define specific shipping methods. For example: Ground, Express, or Air. You can associate shipping methods with lead times in the Inter-org Shipping Methods window. See: Defining Inter-organization Shipping Networks.
To define shipping methods:
You cannot change the values in this field after saving them. To remove an obsolete QuickCode you can either disable the code, enter an end date, or change the meaning and description to match a replacement code.
If you enter an Effective From date you cannot use the shipping method before this date. If you leave this field blank, the shipping method is valid immediately.
If you enter an Effective To date you cannot use the shipping method after this date. Once a shipping method expires, you cannot define shipping networks using the shipping method, but can query networks that already use the shipping method. If you do not enter an end date, the shipping method is valid indefinitely.
5. Indicate whether the shipping method is enabled. A shipping method must be enabled before you can define shipping networks using it. If you disable a shipping method you cannot use it in shipping networks, but you can query networks that already use the shipping method.
