Plan and Receive Inbound Containers with multiple Purchase Orders
Use the Purchase Container Handling app to plan receipt of Containers with Lines from multiple Purchase Orders – and manage delays in delivery easily.
You have created multiple Purchase Orders for your supplier during months, and now your supplier is ready to ship the container – and sends you a list of the items included in the container.
The list of contents is a mix of purchase order, and probably also partial deliveries of some purchase orders. This app will help you assign a container id to all the relevant Purchase Order Lines, and then you can manage all the items as one.
If the container is delayed, you can update the delivery date on the container, and it will apply to all the Purchase Order Lines.
If you look up a specific item, you can see which container it will be delivered with, and when it is expected to arrive.
Usually your supplier will pack the container, but you can also keep track of available volume, quantities, net weight and gross weight of each container, while you add more Purchase Orders to it. The planner can easily check if the Container is full.

The features of Purchase Container Handling
Select Container on Order Lines
On the Purchase Order Lines and Transfer Order Lines, you can assign the inbound container code and see which Container they have been allocated to.
Overview Lines on Containers
On the Container Card you can overview all lines assigned to the Container, both open and posted lines.
Manage Container status
You can control the status of the container. This one is ‘Shipped’, and the container status determines your options.
Receive the Container in one go
When you receive the Container, you can do it as a single receipt, and the solution will receive all included lines across Purchase Orders and Transfer Orders, for locations not setup to require advanced warehouse.
Change Shipment Date
If you change the Shipment Date on a Container, it will ask, if you want to change the Shipment Date on all assigned lines – across all Purchase Orders and Transfer Orders. This saves you a lot of time.
Calculate totals of a Container
You can trigger a re-calculation of the measurements and totals of the items in the container, including net weight, gross weight, and measured weight. Then the planner can evaluate if there is room for more items in the container.
Container id on Warehouse Reciept
You can create a Warehouse Reciept and get purchase and transfer lines based on the Container id. It is also possible to add container id to all lines on the Warehouse Receipt in one go.
