Calculate freight charge from SO not shipment

Currently if you use Shipping Terms to calculate freight charge based on total amount breaks, they are based on the shipments rather than the sales order.

This means that if the order is fulfilled in 2 shipments there may be 2 freight charges to the customer.

There really needs to be the option to change this to just be based on the order amounts so that we would cover the cost of additional shipments instead of charging them to the customer.

    Unfortunately you are right, I just confirmed this with the developer. It only applies to premium freight for now. Thanks for your suggestion, we'll look into it.

    Hi Gabriel, yes I did try that but I think that only applies to premium freight doesn't it? Not freight calculated by shipping terms...

    Hi Justin. Did you check out the Freight Calculation Settings in SO Preferences? There's an option to allocate freight proportionally or 100% on first shipment.
