How do I setup pre-defined packages for automatic packaging of orders?



What is the purpose of pre-defined packages?


You can setup pre-defined packages or cartons that can be used during consignment creation.

For example, you may have a number of standard box sizes in your warehouse that you use for shipping orders. You can enter these as pre-defined packages so that the system automatically packages your orders into the appropriate boxes for you and creates the correct number of shipping labels.


How do I setup automate packaging of orders?


The system can automatically package items on orders into your predefined packages based on the dimensions and cubic of your items. In such cases the system will automatically create the correct number of shipping labels based on the number of pre-defined packages needed to pack the order.

You can configure rules around max fill percentage per package etc by following the steps below from your Neto dashboard.

  1. Go to Setup & Tools > All settings & tools

  2. Go to the Sales Orders & Invoices heading and click Order Processing Rules

  3. Go to the Warehouse Auto Packaging Rules section

You can also manually select predefined packages to auto populate shipping article details (eg: weight, length, height & width).

If you do not setup predefined packages for automatic packaging of orders, consignments will be populated as per the dimensions, weight and cubic of items in your database.
