Station 4: Weight & Boxtype

At Station 4, we manage per unique box ID (sticker on the box), the box types and weights. We have two ways to manage this, forced by sales or overruled by PH.

Station 4 // Purpose

Box types are managed in Manage boxes. An average farm manages quickly lots of box types. This module is a tool to control that the correct box type gets exported, exactly as its been displayed in the PO page, Commercial Invoice, Customer Invoice, Export Docs like the Truck-invoice and Export Reports. Before you can start using Station 4, please generate External Box ID's.
We have two ways of managing station 4. We shall explain both methods, please inform UNOSOF which method you'd like to be applied to your application.

Station 4 // Forced by Sales

Forced by sales means: Whatever box types the commercial department have defined in the PO content, have to be followed up exactly as being instructed. Any box type change, needs to be required by the PH to the commercial department.
1) The customer gets exactly what he wants.
2) Box type change request, require communication between the packers and the commercial department.

In this module, you can assign the External Box Barcode ID to the unique UNOSOF BOX ID.
Step 1) scan the Unique UNOSOF BOX ID, once you do this, we show the box content and we jump the cursor automatically to the Weight field. If you don't with to assign weights, we can skip this part, and jump the cursor to the Box Scan field.
Step 1, scan Unique UNOSOF Box ID (from the box sticker).
Step 2) scan the External Box ID, thats been pre-printed on the tapa design of the box.

A message will show up, if the chosen box is correct or not.
An incorrect Box Type Match, between how the packers have packed the box vs how its been defined in the PO content by the commercial department.
A perfect match between the Box Type being used by the packer and how it has been defined by the commercial department in the PO content.

Station 4 // Overruled by PH

Overruled by PH means: Whatever box types the commercial department have defined in the PO content, can be overruled by PH by scanning the BOX ID's that are preprinted on the tapas, and assign those ID's the UNOSOF box ID's. The benefit of this: The packer knows the best what package rate of the box content fits in the best possible box (he stand in front, he's packing every day boxes, know's what he's doing). Therefor, the chance that this method results in the most optimal packing is big, volume weight vs real weight shall be very close. This method also takes away ALL communication between packers and the commercial department on what box types shall be used for exporting.
1) Volume weights shall be more optimized. 2) No communication needed between the packers and commercial department.
