The landing cost price is the total unit cost, including cost price and related expenses.

In addition to the vendor cost price, it includes shipping and handling, and discounts.

Landing cost is the cost price in addition to extra expenses (and not only the extra expenses).

This can be set in the vendor attributes Section of Inventory Planner:

You can recalculate this value based on the values provided in the most recently received Purchase Order.

This can be done 1 of 2 ways, explained below.

Please note, if you do not use either of the Methods mentioned below, the Landing Cost value will remain unchanged from the current value, if it is set in Vendor Attributes.


- Example PO with single item, with no discounts but has a shipping & handling charge:

Purchase order raised for 10 units of 1 item.

The line items cost price, is £1

The Shipping & Handling charge in the example is £10.00

Calculation used for the landing cost price for this example.

£10.00 (Shipping & handling) / £10 (Total excluding Tax for all line items) = £1 (Shipping cost per unit)

£1 (Cost Price) + £1 (Cost Price) * £1 (Shipping cost per unit) = £2 (Landing Cost Price)

- Example PO with multiple line items and Discounts:

Purchase order raised for 90 units, across 2 items.

Each variant has its respective Unit cost price and a 10% discount applied.

The shipping and Handling charge in the example is £7.99.

Each line item has an additional 20% VAT/Tax added.
(Please note, our landing cost does not include the VAT/Tax in the calculation)

Calculation used for the landing cost price for this example:

£7.99 (Shipping & handling) / £375.75 (Total excluding Tax for all line items) = £0.0212641383898869 (Shipping cost per unit)

£4.275 (Cost Price after discount) + (£4.275 (Cost Price after discount) * £0.0212641383898869 (Shipping cost per unit)) = £4.36590419162 (£4.37 - Landing Cost Price)
