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.
