Picking and Packing Documents

Picking and packing documents are important to both the shipper and the receiver. Picking and packing documents enable warehouse staff to perform the physical picking, packing and shipping processes. The customer uses packing documents to view the contents of the current delivery and status of any items still awaiting shipment, on backorder or being drop-shipped from the vendor. Also, it is common for a retailer to include return instructions, promotional offers and general company contact information.

 

CORESense provides four standard picking and packing document templates.  Standard documents may be tailored in the Email and Document Templates Manager.  New documents may also be created and used in place of the standard four by setting the Location to Shipments in the Email and Document Template Manager.

Sample

Master Pick List

This document would typically be used for picking SKUs by location across many shipments vs picking one shipment at a time. This document template is typically printed for shipments in the New status.

Picking and Packing Runs

Picking and packing processes can vary from retailer to retailer. This depends on factors including shipment volume, quality assurance, staff requirements and physical warehouse layout. However, every process always includes the printing of picking and packing documents. Although a retailer can choose their own process and steps, CORESense provides two processes for picking and packing, each containing their own required steps: Separate Picking and Packing or a Combined Picking and Packing.

Tip: It is recommended that the user performs all steps before repeating the process. If one process begins before another completes, shipment processes may overlap and cause for duplicate printing of shipping documents.

 

Separate Picking and Packing

This process includes the printing of a master pick list for all shipments, then printing a separate packing document for each individual shipment. All inventory is picked before the packing process begins.

Combined Picking and Packing

This process includes printing a combined picking and packing document for the picking and packing of each individual shipment. Shipments are picked and packed individually.
