Traditionally, warehouse workers pack items for shipment at a specific packing station, using a process that’s optimized to ship small and medium-sized parcels. To improve packing efficiency when working in larger areas and with larger items, the Warehouse Management mobile app in Microsoft Dynamics 365 Supply Chain Management now provides a mobile packing experience that gives workers the freedom to move around while performing packing activities.
Flexibility improves packing efficiency
The packing flow in the Warehouse Management mobile app includes three main processes:
- Identifying the items to pack
- Creating and identifying the containers to pack the items into
- Closing the containers to finalize the packing process
To provide for more flexibility, you can easily embed the container creation and closing processes in any packing operation step using a detour.
