You can set up the Serialized Logistics application to do the logistics of serialized items.


You can manage the Serialized Logistics application through the main tabs below:


Orders


You can organize the warehouse activities based on orders.

  • You can create the orders in the Admin UI or over the Serialized Logistics V2 API.
  • You can manage the orders in the Admin UI.


Order TypeDescription
InboundDelivery from your supplier (external) or from another warehouse of your company (internal).

Return from a client or from another warehouse of your company.
OutboundShipment to your client (external) or to another warehouse of your company (internal).


Pickings


You can track the pick lists that are created in the warehouses. Picking is a preparation step before shipping the items to a client. The activity is similar to filling a shopping cart. The content of the shopping cart can change before the actual shipping. The goal is to accelerate the shipping activity.


A pick list is identified by a purchase order ID. This purchase order ID is used in the next step when shipping the items to a client. Once the items are shipped:

  • An outbound external transfer is created with the same purchase order ID.
  • The related pick list disappears from the Pickings view.


You can also verify the EPCIS file generation for a pick list before shipping to Bahrain. This is a quality check to avoid the situation when the EPCIS file cannot be generated for a released shipment.


Transfers


You can track the transfer activities in your warehouses.


Transfer TypeDescription
InboundReceived items coming from a supplier (external) or from another warehouse of your company (internal).
Outbound

Shipped items going to a client (external) or to another warehouse of your company (internal). 


For outbound internal transfers, the users can ship by batch or by stock transfer ID. Shipping by batch is only possible at manufacturer sites (set for the warehouse).


For outbound external transfers, the users can ship by purchase order ID.

  • If the outbound external transfer is a Third-Party Logistics (3PL) activity on behalf of a supplier being the Marketing Authorization Holder (MAH) of the shipped items, one of the following is applicable:
    • Shipping to Bahrain: The application generates an EPCIS 1.2 file. The file contains the commissioning, aggregation, and shipping events. The user can download the file to the local computer and send it to the supplier.
    • Shipping to the UAE: The application generates an EPCIS 1.2 file (manufacturing report) and sends it to Tatmeen on behalf of the supplier (MAH). The file contains the commissioning, aggregation, and shipping events. A log is created on the Tatmeen regulatory channel associated with the supplier (MAH).
  • When a CMO reports a shipping event from SAP ATTP to a MAH in TraceLink, the application creates an outbound external transfer based on the input from SAP ATTP and the configuration. The user can verify the transfer in the application.
  • When a CMO sends a generic report from SAP ATTP to Movilitas.Cloud to report an import request to Kazakhstan, the application creates an outbound external transfer based on the input from SAP ATTP and the configuration. The user can verify the transfer in the application.


Site management


You can do all the administration related to the warehouses where the activities are performed:

  • Configuring warehouses, sublocations, and storage locations.
  • Activating operators.
    • Assigning a warehouse and privileges to each operator.
    • Assigning printer and scanner devices to each operator.
    • Activating specific settings of the mobile application at the operator level.
  • Registering your suppliers (inbound) and their products.
  • Uploading an EPCIS 1.1 or 1.2 input file from a supplier when the supplier is the MAH of the product and you perform 3PL activities on behalf of the supplier.
  • Registering your clients (outbound).


Products


You can view the list of products managed in the application.


Batch History


You can view the history of a batch managed in the application. You can also keep the stock data up-to-date related to the selected batch.


SSCCs


You can create and manage serial shipping container code (SSCCs) sequences as per the GS1 standard. You can also request the historical activities connected to each container.


Note: The SSCC pool is a shared collection between the Serialized Manufacturing and the Serialized Logistics applications.


Labels


You can create ZPL label templates for SSCCs.


Settings


This tab allows you to configure the application-level settings.

  • You can select a default business channel for communication with an external system.
  • You can provide an external GS1 Digital Link Resolver server URL so that Movilitas.Cloud can connect to the server to present digital information to the operators about the scanned pack.
  • You can provide a Scandit license key to use matrix scanning in the installed version of the mobile application.
  • You can control the access to the Admin UI for users with the "User" role.
