The Serialized Logistics application enables users to handle serialized logistics in the warehouse.
With this application, you can use the following capabilities:
Connecting to External Systems
The connections to external systems are established through respective channels.
In the pharmaceutical industry, you can connect to the following systems to report activities:
- SAP ATTP
- SAP ICH
- BPOM (Indonesian market)
- NMVS (Arvato)
- Tatmeen (UAE)
Connecting to a GS1 Digital Link Resolver Server
The Serialized Logistics application can communicate with an external GS1 Digital Link Resolver server. The Serialized Logistics application forwards the electronic content request from the users to the server that redirects them to an external website presenting the digital information. For more information about the GS1 Digital Link standard, visit the GS1 website.
Enables the users to configure and manage the application:

- By batch - Shipping by batch is only possible at manufacturer sites (set for the warehouse).
- By stock transfer ID
- By purchase order ID
Note: For manufacturer sites, it is also possible to commission the items while shipping to accelerate serialization and logistics activities. The setting can be activated or deactivated on the warehouse level and it requires administrator rights. The setting does not bring extra UI functions for the user in the mobile application who wants to ship. However, the application executes additional tasks and reports in the background.
- Preprint SSCC labels on Zebra Cloud Connect printers
- Validate picking (not related to the "Pick" action)
- View hierarchy
- Pack an order (a post-action after Validate picking)
- Replace the children of a parent trade item
Depending on the business use case, the actions are reported through the channel configured for the warehouse or the supplier.
Offline Scanning (Only for Verification)
The mobile application also offers offline scanning for verification purposes for the users working on a site with a limited connection to the Internet. The user can submit the items for verification after logging into the application once the device has a connection to the Internet again.
