Some customers feel there are too many options for users to have to fill out or take into account while filling out the search pane. There could be a default option for an ADMIN to set so users in the org only see certain search criteria.
If an org doesn't use Custom Surcharge Groups, the org can set a default to not show the Surcharge Options.
If an org doesn't care about searching by carrier, Contract ID, Amendment ID, Named Account or commodity, container multiplier or Free time, they can all be removed from view.
This would be done at the Org level to apply to all users.
