New functionality: Carrier Type Groups
Geplaatst op 26 augustus 2016 -
We’re happy to announce the new ‘Carrier Type Group’ functionality.
In common practise two Carriertypes are used, namely: Euro-pallets and Blok-pallets. However, there are several variations, see screenshot below. The Packaging is related to the Carriertype, so when creating a document (e.g. Receipt / Shipment) it is important to specify the correct Carriertype. However, the definition of “Default Quantity per Carrier” the “Shipment Carrier-calculation” etc. is the same for a Blok-Chep as a Blok-plastic. So if you want to support more Carriertypes for one item you have to define all these types for that item.
Now with Carrier Type Groups the system searches first for the same Carrier Type, if this one not exists it searches for a Carrier Type in the same Carrier Type Group.
Attached to a Carrier Type Group you can fill in several fields, e.g. Length, Width, Height, Tare Weight. If you select a Carrier Type Group on a Carrier Type these fields are copied to the Carrier Type.
Carrier Type Groups are integrated in:
- Shipment Calculation Method
- Orderpick Calculation Method
