How to configure Landed cost in Odoo?

Landed cost is the total price of a product once it has arrived at buyers’ hand. This includes the transportation fee, duty, handling fees, etc. These prices are added and divided to get the actual selling price of the product. The traditional way of calculating landed cost is adding up all the expense and divide them equally to the products. The way of calculating landed cost will vary according to the company and products which they are handling, etc.



> Configuring the Landed Cost in ERP.

> Configure the Landed Cost Type.

> Compute Landed Cost for a warehouse transfer.

Configuring the Landed Cost in ERP:


Step 1: Login as admin user

Step 2: Go to Settings>>configuration>>Warehouse

Step 3: Check the field “calculate landed costs on products” and Make sure that the field called “Generate accounting entries per stock movement” is checked as in screenshot no:1



Step 4: Go to  Settings>configuration>Purchase

Make sure that the field called “Use 'Real Price' or 'Average' costing methods” is checked.

Before going to landed cost we have to set accounts, costing methods and inventory valuation.

In product master under accounting tab

Select “Real Time(automated)” as Inventory Valuation


In product master under Procurement tab.

Select “Real Price” as Costing method.

Define stock accounts for the Product category.

Go to Sales >> Configuration >> Product Categories & Attributes>>Product category.


- Stock input account

- Stock output account

- Stock valuation account

- Stock journal

- Income account

- Expense account


Configure the Landed Cost Type

Landed cost types are created as products. These are the expenses which are added as landed cost.

Step 1: Go to warehouse>>Configuration>>Landed Cost Type

Create a landed cost for transportation, make product type as service and splitting method as required.


Splitting Methods


- Quantity

- By current Cost Price

- By Weight

- By Volume



It equally splits the expenses for the product lines



It computes greater expense for higher quantity Product


3.By current Cost Price:

It divides the expense on a cost basis. Higher expense for high-cost product


4.By weight and Volume:

It divides the expense on weight and volume of a product.

Provide the cost price for the landed cost type and the expense account needed. And then save the form.


Compute Landed Cost for a warehouse transfer

Step 1: Create a landed cost for the picking

Warehouse> Landed Cost> Landed Costs

Here some fields are given. In that select the journal from the drop down list. Then, in the  ‘pickings’ field select the picking (warehouse transfer eg: Chic/IN/00002). In ‘cost lines’ select the landed cost type and then click on compute. Once you click on the compute button you will get the landed cost computed for each line.


Now click on validate and the accounting entries will be generated for the same.

I've been browsing online greater than 3 hours as of late, but I never discovered any attention-grabbing article like yours. It's pretty price sufficient for me. In my opinion, if all website owners and bloggers made good content material as you probably did, the net might be a lot more helpful than ever before.
