Shipping Charge Reconciliation
The Shipping Charge Reconciliation feature makes it easy for the seller, to better reconcile their spends as a business with ShipRocket in a much faster and simpler way. The new and improved dashboard now displays the total collected amount against an AWB number in a single column. Gone are the days of manual calculations, the new platform allows you to see the final amount without any confusion or hassle.
The new panel is divided into the below-mentioned sections and you can access it by going to the Billing section in the left menu. The fourth tab ‘Statement’ is where all your information regarding the monetary transactions is stored.
In addition to this, the new excel format, which can be accessed by clicking on the ‘export’ button on the top right corner, is designed in such a way which enables a business to better comprehend the transactions.
The first set of headers in our Statement tab are:
Total AWB’s Amount: Total freight cost which is the sum total including forward, COD charges and return (if applicable).
Billed AWB’s Amount: The AWBs which have been billed and invoice has been generated.
