Dangerous Goods: using Item Optional Fields
When to use
If the shipment contains Dangerous Goods, you can select the option "Contains Dangerous Goods" when creating a Shipment Review. Freight Smartlink then sends a single field for Dangerous Goods. ( True/False).
For details on this feature, refer to F/S Transactions>Shipment Review
There is a requirement to include more information on the types of dangerous goods in the shipment.
How to Setup
You need to add the following 5 optional fields in Sage 300 > Common Services and add them to I/C Items, O/E Order Details, O/E Shipment Details and O/E Invoice Details.
DGCODE--> unnumber (e.g. 1111)
DGTECHNME-> techname (e.g. AEROSOLS)
DGCLASS -> class (e.g. 1)
DGSUBCLASS -> subclass (e.g. 2.1)
DGERG -> erg (e.g. 2Y)
Note: You cannot change the Optional Field name.
Add the Optional Fields as Text fields in Common Services > Optional Fields
Add the Optional Fields the I/C Items, O/E Order Details, O/E Shipment Details, O/E Invoice Details
Update the Optional Fields in I/C Items for Dangerous Goods items.
Tip: When using SmartFreight, it is not mandatory to update the techname and erg optional fields on the items, but you need to setup all the optional fields.
When Items are added to O/E Orders, Shipments and Invoices, Sage 300 adds the optional fields to the O/E Transaction (Order, Shipment, Invoice) automatically.
When Exporting the Shipment Review,
Freight SmartLink includes the Dangerous Goods Tags in the <freightlinedetails> Tag when exporting the Shipment Review for SmartFreight.
If the Optional Fields value is not set, the export will continue, but will not include the Dangerous Goods Tags.
The Item quantity total is calculated by the optional fields and the Order Unit of Measure.
