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:
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.
|Inbound||Delivery from your supplier (external) or from another warehouse of your company (internal).|
Return from a client or from another warehouse of your company.
|Outbound||Shipment to your client (external) or to another warehouse of your company (internal).|
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.
You can track the transfer activities in your warehouses.
|Inbound||Received items coming from a supplier (external) or from another warehouse of your company (internal).|
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.
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).
You can view the list of products managed in the application.
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.
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.
You can create ZPL label templates for SSCCs.
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.
