Intelligent packing can help enterprises automate packing instructions, document-generation and packing material validation. It focuses on five key areas:

  • On-screen packing instructions: Generating shipment or delivery-specific packing instructions based on a set of well-defined business rules by swapping inventory classification with a material classification-based rule, and mapping packing material against material classification
  • Packing of dangerous goods: Providing customized packing instructions based on the type of dangerous goods, and generating guidelines and validation to mitigate errors
  • Integrated document generation: Fetching all relevant information from the connected systems to generate required documents along with shipping labels
  • Delivery consolidation: Suggesting consolidation opportunities and involving automation in decision-making
  • Supply chain visibility: Enabling traceability through automated task creation for inventory movement
