Purpose: Use this screen to define the extra weight per carton to use when calculating freight with the order weight method.
Weight field: Enter the weight for the system to use for each carton when using the order weight freight method. This freight method involves calculating the total weight of the items on the order and the number of cartons required to ship them, based on a maximum carton weight that you define for the shipper. The system then consults the freight table defined for the source code to determine the amount to charge for each carton. The system calculates freight separately for each different ship via and arrival date on the order; it also calculates freight separately for ship-alone items.
