Reduce shipment costing with SAP or third-party solution?

We have two measurements we use in our shipping -- we either ship each item, or a truckload of items. We'd like to find a way to reduce the costs of our mistakes. Is there some way to set a limit, to say, five truckloads maximum?

The function that you need to look into is called Shipment costing. Shipment costing enables you to perform various simulations of pricing based on pricing conditions and scaling. SAP provides a very complicated shipment costing functionality within the Shipment module. If you are looking for third-party solutions, there is a product called ABM (Adaptive Business Modeler) that enables various yield optimization solutions to help you to optimize truckload, FTL and LTL scenarios based on economies of scale models.
