Before you can set up an accessorial assignment, you must set up accessorial masters and accessorial charges for carriers and hubs. An accessorial assignment associates a carrier with a surcharge configuration, which is used when you rate a shipment.

The fuel indexes determined by the Department of Energy (DOE) also affect the rates that you identify for a shipment. For more information about how to set up and apply fuel indexes, see Set up carrier fuel indexes.

The accessorial master is used to categorize the carrier accessorial and hub accessorial charges. You must set up an accessorial master before you can set up a carrier accessorial.

  1. Click Transportation management > Setup > Rating > Accessorial master.

  2. Click New.
