How the New Revenue Recognition Standard Will Impact the Transportation Industry

Posted 5:04 PM by

Related transportation and delivery expenses directly associated with the shipments are recorded once the revenue is recognized. This revenue recognition methodology will change with the adoption of Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) Accounting Standards Update (ASU) No. 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606).
