Packing Approaches
There are two configurable approaches to packing. In Standard Packing mode, you record the packing information for a shipment as the items arrive at the packing station. In Consolidation Packing mode, items from multiple transactions arrive at the packing station and as you pack the items, you build a consolidation shipment and record the packing information against this consolidation shipment.
This chapter deals with packing in Standard Packing mode. If your organization uses standard packing, it means that all the items you pack are associated with a shipment when they arrive for packing.
Example: Your organization supplies computer items to large wholesale customers. Your customers send in orders, which are received and organized into shipments. The items for each shipment are then gathered, and scanned and packed for shipping.
The scan, pack, and ship functionality in Standard Packing mode allows you to record packing information for these existing shipments. When you bring up a shipment for packing, the application displays the unpacked items belonging to the shipment as available for packing.
Note: Your administrator can also configure Standard Packing mode to reference other transaction types. However, in this document, Standard Packing mode refers to packing existing shipments.
