Package segment

Package segment

It is important to provide information about the package size and weight. This segment is also where to specify packing levels of groups of the same product (for example a single unit, or a box of 12). For groupings of different products, see Kit Segment

The GTIN, Quantity, and Container fields also appear in Item Segment>Order Information, and are shown at the top of the page in this segment for convenience. Changes in one segment will affect the other. 

Click ADD NEW PACKAGE to get started. You can add multiple packages.

Here are some example packages:

  1. The default Unit should usually be Each, and can be changed in Brand Settings>Default Values>Packages>Package UOM. This example shows a single unit ("Each"), a box of 12 Each, and a Case of 12 Boxes. Note how the weight and volume of each package are multiples of the constituent packages.
  2. Weight Variance is the potential variation in weight of a package expressed as a percentage (%).
  3. Dimensional Weight is calculated automatically using Height, Width, Length and Weight fields. 
  4. Stacking Factor is the number of these packages that may be safely stacked on top of each-other.
  5. The Level GTIN is unique to a particular package. "Each" packages will use the product GTIN.
  6. The package segment allows you to ADD HAZARDOUS MATERIALS information if applicable.
