Use shipment staging to gain an overview of the processes at the outbound dock before shipping. Staging shipments helps make it more efficient to repackage or consolidate items after picking.

  1. Click Inventory management > Periodic > Shipments > Shipment staging.

  2. On the Setup tab, under Handling status, select the fields to define the view of your shipments at the outbound dock, for example, the Staged or Loaded fields.

  3. Specify whether you want the form to automatically update at startup and whether you want the range fields to automatically update, as well.

  4. Save the setup with a name.

  5. On the Overview tab, enter the relevant information about the shipment lines that you want to query.


    You can also save the range that you have specified and this is added to the setup that you have saved.

  6. Click Update to see all shipments that correspond to the query that you have specified.
