Packing scanning

Table of contents

Introduction

Like the picking cart scanning, the packing scanning allows one user to pick several outbound orders at the same time. However, the packing scanning uses a multi-step process where only the last part requires a hand-held unit connected to the internet:

  1. Several orders are grouped together.
  2. Using an ordinary paper picking list and a picking cart with multiple bins, a user collects goods for all orders on a single trip through the warehouse.
  3. The goods are brought to some designated place in the warehouse, such as a packing table.
  4. At the table, the goods are scanned and transport labels are prepared.
The crucial point here is that step 2 does not require a hand-held unit. This means that this workflow is suitable for warehouses which do not have wireless internet, but which still want the additional picking accuracy which you get from scanning the goods before shipping them.

Scanning workflow

When the goods have been brought to the packing table (described in step 4 in the workflow outlined above), the user will scan them using the following process:

  1. Select which group of orders to work with.
  2. Select which specific order in the group to work with.
  3. Scan each article in the order.
  4. When all articles have been scanned, the user receives a message saying that the order is done.
  5. If there are more orders in the group to handle, go to step 2. Otherwise the entire group of orders is finished.

Settings

Transport labels

If you have an integration to a transport system such as Unifaun, it is possible to make a transport booking from the scanner.

Delivery notes and other printouts

It is possible to have the scanner trigger a printout of a delivery note (or some other type of printout).
