Receiving & Put Away
HIGH VOLUME LCT RECEIVING
Fast and efficient receiving of new shipments is often critical in large warehousing operations, particularly when the inventory is imported or comes from a factory running behind schedule. In these cases, the distribution center usually has a load of sales order lines in backorder waiting to be released. These order lines can be picked and shipped as soon as the stock is available.
The next mode of receiving is much the same as the LCT receipt above, but the difference is that the supplier does not provide a detailed packing list, or the inventory is not packed on pallets and will only be packed on receipt. In this case, the LCT is still loaded two or three weeks before arrival, but the entire shipment is linked to a master shipping TrackID. The final shipping costs are loaded on the receipt, and the LCT shipment is processed for receipt in DATASCOPE WMS.
This produces the GRNs in SYSPRO and prints a single large master shipment label for the entire container. The DATASCOPE Scanner palletization system is not used to scan products onto pallets. Here the system moves the stock from the master TrackID onto new TrackIDs per pallet and prints a pallet label and packing list label for each pallet. The master shipment TrackID reconciles the shipment against the actual inventory received. In large warehouses, there is often a need to manage this effectively.
