Goods packing and shipping are the final steps in the order fulfillment process at a warehouse or distribution center. When an order bin is transported to a packing and shipping station, the order information is shown on the station terminal to enable operators to conduct a final check of all picked SKUs. If the contents of the order bin are correct, the operator transfers the items to a shipping carton, adds packing materials (such as bubble wrap or foam peanuts), inserts an invoice printout, and seals the carton. Advantech’s goods packing and shipping station terminals are also integrated with a printer and barcode scanner to allow operators to print and scan shipping labels. Once the order is shipped, customers can use the barcode on the shipping label to track their order.
