Configuring the FIAT Chrysler Automobiles Clause 92 process

Generally, FIAT Chrysler Automobiles items are packed in returnable containers. If too few of these containers were provided by FIAT Chrysler Automobiles, expendable packaging must be used. This expendable packaging is paid by FIAT Chrysler Automobiles, provided that the information relating to expendable packaging is included in the ASN. The information about the expendable container is provided by the special 00000EXP label. FIAT Chrysler Automobiles requires a new packing slip number using the 00000EXP packaging code for each article in expendable containers. The ASN can include one bill of lading and several packing slip numbers. For this purpose, a shipment can be split in the ERP system. The split shipments are then shown in the Manage Shippers details on the Containers tab. The costs of the expendable containers are included in the ASN.

You can configure item, trading partner, and customer for the Clause92 process and you can display the costs of the expendable packaging.
