Tract Settlement Rates
As you enter Load Tickets in LoadCalc Professional!, the Tract Production Settlement Rates screen will be updated with any unique combinations of Logger Id's, Mill Id's and Product Id's.
As you enter Load Tickets in LoadCalc Professional!, the Tract Production Settlement Rates screen will be updated with any unique combinations of Logger Id's, Mill Id's and Product Id's. The system will not automatically set the Rate/Ton amount for you. This will have to be done manually. You can enter all of the potential combinations at the time you create the Tract, or wait and simply update the Rates whenever you run the Settlement Worksheets.
The Settlement Worksheet Report will automatically check for rates that are zero and provide you with a list of those if you choose to print it. If you run Settlement Worksheets with any zero rates, those line items will be extended to a line payment amount of zero so it will be quite easy to identify any missing rates.
On any tab, you can click the 'Add' button to add a new Settlement Rate, or the 'Edit' button to edit an existing Settlement Rate.
A window similar to the one above will open and if adding a new Settlement Rate, you will be able to select the Logger Id, Hauler Id, Mill Id, and Product Id (These cannot be changed when editing.). Enter a rate for Stumpage, Logger, Hauler and/or Owner.
Note the color coding of the screen above. The Stumpage Rate is the amount of money your company will be paid by the Mill for every load delivered; therefore this amount is colored green for income. The next three rates are amounts you will pay to sub-contractors; therefore, these amounts are shown in a light red to indicate outgoing money. The final amount shown on this screen is the profit as determined by subtracting the rates for Loggers, Haulers, and Owners from the Stumpage Rate. This is the amount of money that your company will net from each load delivered and will be displayed with a green color if the ticket rates are profitable and red if the ticket rates are set to a loss.
Just remember Green is Good, Red is Bad.
Because the list of rates can get fairly long, you can filter the Settlement Rate list on any tab to see just the rates you are interested in. Select any Logger Id, Hauler Id, Tract Id, or Product Id and the screen will refresh and show you just the Settlement Rates that match the selections you've made. For a quick view of Rates that have a zero value, check the box labeled 'Display Only Records with Zero Rate Values.'
