    I've been thinking about your project and it seems like you want to pick a few options and be shown some rates as opposed to keeping track of specific containers.


    So basically, you have 3 rate tables: FRT_table, which is your basic rate depending on Carrier Contract, Contract type, POL, POD and Cost Code.
    Then an FRT_Additionals_Table that only depends on the Carrier (and Cost Code).
    Last is a Locals Table that depends on the Carrier and POD.

    I split POL and POD Ports into two tables here, but I would have both in one table with an additional field for showing which ports are POL and which are POD (the Port type).



    Here are the 3 rate tables

    Thanks ssanfu, yes you have it correct, the tool is only used as:

    1. Sales team to get base costs to quote clients, so they find the base cost and add margin etc for quotes
    2. Invoicing team to check that Carriers charged us correctly

    No active tracking of any shipping, purely a cost calculator.

    I would note that the FRT_Additionals needs to have a POL and POD too, it doesnt in the current program but the redesign needs to have that.

    Also needs a Transits table, but that is simple to add to your design above.
