With the developing of supply chain, logistics management increasingly affects bottom line. You need to know the price of the goods after they arrive at the warehouse. Business owners can miss out on their profits due to incorrect land value calculations when manually entered.

Thanks to the cost module in the supply chain management system, companies receive a technological way to track goods and calculate the final cost of delivering the goods to the final destination.

A single data entry has the effect of ensuring that the total shipping cost provides you with an accurate record of end-to-end shipping costs. Companies can also avoid financial mistakes by automating administrative tasks. These additional features save staff time and streamline the manufacturing process from manufacturer to warehouse.

Frequently, shipping costs reach up to 40% of the total unit cost. This cost includes transport to the port of departure, direct departure and loading, customs, transport from the port of arrival. This is all without taking into account unforeseen delays and fees.
