Track sales packaging costs

Hello,

Here is a functional issue I could use some brain sharing.

A sales order needs packaging to be shipped to the customer.
But product margins are tight and, depending on the value of the products sold, packaging costs can have a significant impact on the sales margin.
Adding to the Product cost an extra amount for average packaging costs is not a solution, as the actual packaging costs depend on the sales order composition.

This looks a bit like "landed costs" but for sales.
It also looks a bit like "additional carrier shipping costs", but is an inventory expense rather than a vendor bill to be paid.
There is no hard requirement to include the costs in the COGS, we are more interested in margin analysis.
 
Thanks for sharing your ideas
