Receiving
The WMS process begins with receiving the product in the door and capturing the initial inventory information. Receiving may include returns, advance ship notice, receiving unexpected shipments, QC hold items, Cross Dock items, building to pallet or unloading a shuttle from sister warehouse. Warehouse Link prompts the worker to capture all the information required for each item and confirm quantity received. A “license plate” is given and the product is ready for putaway. The information remains attached to the product throughout the entire warehouse process.
