Catalogs

Follow these steps to set up the Mexican tax authorities (SAT) catalogs to add information to the Permission type, Trailer type, and Federal motor transport configuration fields.

  1. Go to Organization administration > Setup > EInvoice > SAT classification > Transportation.

  2. On the Transportation page, create the following SAT catalogs:

    • For the Trailer type field, the SAT catalog is c_SubTipoRem.
    • For the Permission type field, the SAT catalog is c_TipoPermiso.
    • For the Federal motor transport configuration field, the SAT catalog is c_ConfigAutotransporte.

Permission number

Distance and time

You can define information about the distance and transportation time between shipment delivery locations in advance. Then, when users enter distance and transportation time on the Transportation details page, they can save time by selecting existing values instead of having to calculate new values. Follow these steps to set up information about the distance and transportation time between transportation spots.

  1. Go to Organization administration > Setup > EInvoice.

  3. Enter the time and distance between the two spots. Transportation spots are all shipment and delivery points. Spots can have different types. Here are some examples:

    • Customer
    • Warehouse
    • Border (if goods are delivered to border)
    • Other

Note

You can skip this procedure. However, in that case, you must manually enter the distance and transportation time on the Transportation details page.

If your company has implemented the Fixed assets module, enter information in the fixed asset record for vehicles or trailers. This information can then be used on the Transportation details page. This information is required for the Waybill (Carta de Porte) complement.

  2. On the Technical information FastTab, set the following fields:

    • In the SAT classification section:

      • Vehicle type
      • Federal motor transport configuration (for trucks only)
      • Trailer type
    • In the Model section:

      • Model year
