Why would you use item charges for sales containers?

Let’s look at that. In the scenario, I’ve made a container and posted three sales orders on the containers making three sales shipments, 40, 41, 42 down here and they all related to this specific container.

And I know that I have also invoiced those so I’ve created posted sales invoice.

Let’s just find them in here.

And if I look at for instance the last posted sales invoice in here.

So if I’m looking at the last posted sales invoice in here, I know it relates to that specific container. And if I’m navigating on the oh sorry, looking at the statistics for this sales invoice, it will have a profit depending on the sales amount and the cost of course. In this scenario, the original Prophet was 12,000 and the adjusted profit still 12,000.

Now if I’m buying or later on adding cost that relates to this container, for instance, freight, customs, insurance, etc, I can post on the purchase side, I can post those costs and split them into the container and thereby, get some of the cost for those two items on this sales invoice to adjust the profit on the specific container. And I can do that both with purchase charges meaning cost and with sales charges meaning sales so I could also increase this the profit if I’m actually selling out charges and I’ll show this in different videos how to adjust this adjusted profit with container cost or container charges.
