Bulk Receiving

So, a floor loaded container has just arrived at one of your dock doors and you need to get it palletized, put away, and recorded in the system as efficiently as possible.  RF is certainly one option, scanning the pallet IDs and entering or scanning item/lot/quantity details, pallet by pallet.  But what if there was a way to receive these pallets in bulk?

We’ve recently been working with customers on a bulk receiving option.  The users fill out a spreadsheet template with the pallet ID (sequential license plates in this instance), item, owner (for their 3PL), lot, expiration date, quantity (standard pallet quantities) and location.  They upload the file into CoreWarehouse, which loads the inventory, creates the history transactions for the audit trail, and ensures the product is instantly available for picking/shipping.  A process that took 15-30 seconds per pallet now takes 30 seconds total for 40+ pallets.

The ability to merge and blend different user inputs (traditional desktop users, browser-based users, RF/mobile users, and bulk uploads) gives you the ability to pick the best tool for the job depending upon the circumstance.  For a diverse, multi-owner 3PL or a food manufacturer/distributor with bulk receiving from a production line or co-packer, bulk receiving may be the most accurate and efficient option.

Give us a call today to discuss how this reduced an multi-hour process into a matter of minutes.
