Shipments arrive in PRECISION from an external ERP system, or as a result of creating a shipment using either the Manual Shipment (MANSH) or Desktop Shipping (SHDTS) option in PRECISION. Regardless of how a shipment appears in the system, it must be processed and shipped using the appropriate carrier service. The shipment workflow can include tasks that allow you to choose a carrier service, print appropriate shipping labels, and make goods available for collection by the carrier. This chapter describes how to complete TMS workflow tasks.
Note: See Desktop Shipping for more information on desktop shipping. See the Manual Shipment chapter of the Base User Guide for information on manual shipments.
