Is it possible to receive multiple POs in one item receipt?

Answered

Client currently receives a shipment related to many POs to save on importation costs. I tried Bulk Receiving but that only creates one item receipt for each PO selected(one PO=one Item Receipt). Is it possible for one Item Receipt to be related to many POs?

It possible via inbound shipment management feature that allows you to handle purchase orders lines from multiple PO’s in a bulk and create an one item receipt for the selected items.

Not quite true here. An inbound shipment is a rudimentary feature that is very limited. It also creates a separate IR to each PO.  In my opinion, the greatest limitation is that landed costs can only be applied before goods are received, which I foresee as being impractical for most companies (most carriers will only send bills for freight charges after goods are delivered, sometimes even several days after receipt).

Thanks so much! Actually after testing I found out that it still creates 1 Item Receipt for 1 PO and does not lump all POs in one Item Receipt sadly. Although the Inbound Shipment Management does allow more accurate and efficient distribution of the landed costs to all items associated with the shipment.
