In shipment generation, multiple orders can be combined manually or automatically to form a shipment under specific, configurable conditions. This is a way of avoiding unnecessary transport routes. The shipments are also picked together. This exploits the fact that there is a consolidation of articles which feature in different orders but can be retrieved in one pick. In manual shipment generation, employees select the orders they want to put together in a shipment in the PROLAG®World template. In automatic shipment generation, you can make settings to define the criteria for automatically generating a shipment for individual orders, for example, if the customer, hauier and process control are identical.
