Plan for Receipts

Receive ASN from Vendors/Freight Forwarders.Stat9 WMS supports inbound ASN and POs. ASN can be sent with PO / SKU information. Vendors may also license plate the inbound product and send the License Plate Number (LPN) along with the ASN.

You can view information on expected receipts such as purchase order, SKU, ASN/BOL, case level and container details. You can track the status of inbound consignments and plan for receipt. Once the expected inbound containers pass a certain status, you can schedule/modify unload date and time, dock number, unload notes, etc.

Set Inspection Profile and Sampling Plan. You can view expected receipts information and set the inspection profile and sampling scheme for each inbound consignment. Refer to the chapter on Quality Control for further details.
