Packing List - SUMMARY

Press ALT + Q and digit "HUM" for a list of the involved functionalities:

Packing List Page

From a shipment/order you can open the Packing List composition page through Actions->Functions->Packing List or from Process->Packing List:

 

The Packing List is a set of handling units, connected to order lines, and has a tree structure.

First, you must select the handling units from "New Handling Unit".

Clicking on New Handling Unit the system will open the list of packaging materials:

 

For example, we choose a box and then add content from Add Content .

The page shows item lines based on orders/shipments. We enter quantities for the items to be added and press OK.

Field Description
Source No. order number
No. item number and description
Quantity item quantity requested on the order page
Q.ty Assigned quantity already assigned on the packing list
Q.ty to Handle enter the quantity to be included in the box that we have selected in the packing list
Location Code connected to the logistics flow of handling units
Bin Code connected to the logistics flow of handling units
Lot No. assign the lot number if needed
Serial No. assign the serial number if needed

To create multiple containers in the same Packing List, you always proceed from New Handling Unit and then define its contents from Add Content.

Tree structure

If we want to add a larger container e.g. a Pallet, we can do it both before and after creating the Packing List.

After entering it from New Handling Unit, through the Cut/Paste functions we can define the tree structure: we select the line of the package to be inserted on the pallet, we press Cut Handling Unit and then we select the pallet and press Paste Handling Unit:

Action Description
Cut Handling Unit select the handling unit to put on the pallet
Paste Handling Unit assign the handling unit to the pallet
Move to first level disconnects the unit from the pallet and brings it back to its initial level
Attach New Handling Unit as the "New Handling Unit" feature is used to generate a new unit. In this case, however, it will already be assigned to the selected pallet.
Remove Content After selecting multiple lines, you can delete them from the packing list that you created.
Note: if we remove a container, automatically all its contents are also deleted.
Assign Handling Unit it opens a list of handling units that are already structured, and are not linked to any document and you can put them into the packing list (e.g. if pallets are prepared at one point in the Company and shipments subsequently take place at another point)
Suggest LIne For Packing the system examines shipments and, according to the Packaging Instructions, proposes boxes already filled with the number of pieces indicated in setup
Handling Unit the system shows details about the selected unit and its contents
