Purpose: Use this screen to define the delivery code the system defaults to new customers you create on the system.
Code field: Enter the code you want the system to default to the customer's shipping address. The delivery code controls which rate table the system uses to calculate shipping charges for shippers such as UPS. Defaults when you create new sold-to or bill-to customers in Order or Entry, through Work with Customers, or through an API if you do not specify a setting in the inbound XML message.
Valid values are:
• B = Business: packages will be shipped to a company
• R = Residence: packages will be shipped to the customer's home
• N = No distinction between business and residence (this is not a valid value for UPS. shippers, as defined in the Ship Via table)
Note: This value is required.
The system uses the following logic to default a delivery code to a customer address:
• If there is no delivery code defined for the customer, the system defaults the delivery code defined in the Default Delivery Code for New Order Entry Customers system control value.
