Planning and coordinating the shipment and receipt of materials is an important step in any logistics system. Outbound items need to be packaged, labeled, weighed, and shipped on schedule in order to meet promised delivery dates. The processing of inbound materials from vendors can be just as involved, as every receipt can include a comparison of bills of lading against actual merchandise received, an inspection for damaged goods, and the distribution of merchandise to the correct warehouse locations.
Aptean Food & Beverage ERP bcFood Edition’s Shipping and Receiving Overviews give your personnel visibility to planned inbound and outbound activities, allowing for you to smoothly sequence shipments and receipts.
