Feature - Shipment Verification For Pallet or Box

Release Date: 4/19/19

Version: 8.5 and up

Currently users can control the literal that is used in Shipment Verification for Box. This is controlled from Global Setup-> Add-Ons-> Shipment Verification-> Field 42. User Defined Literal For Box. If it is not specified, the word box will be used.

This feature lets the user control the literal through the Customer EDI Profile. This is accessed via the special functions menu in Customer File Maintenance.

Fields 87 and 88 have been added to allow the user to choose if the shipping verification is processed by pallet or box and what literal should be used.

87. Is Shipping Verification for Pallet or Box? Possible values are “B”=Box or “P”=Pallet. “B” is the default value. When create VICS BOL, by default, it will calculate the total number of carton base on item case size (either item user amount, order multiple, or item case size per global setup) and default number of pallet as 1. However, if you set this flag to “P”, then VICS BOL will be created to calculate the number of pallet base on case size setup and default the number of carton same as number of pallet. 

88. Display Literal for Box(Pallet)? This is the user-defined literal that will be displayed. If field 87 is set to B, this field will default to Box. If field 87 is set to P, this field will default to PLT.

When processing shipments for a customer without an EDI profile, the package literal will be displayed as "Box" or what was defined in field 42 of Shipment Verification Global Setup.

When processing shipment for a customer with an EDI profile, the application with check if field 87 of the Customer EDI Profile is set to Pallet but the literal is not provided, it will default to PLT.  If field 87 is set to Box or not set at all, it will default to Box.

Here are some examples of how the Shipping Verification and Order Inquiry screens will look.

This feature will also change how the number of pallets is calculated. If shipping is by pallet, the number of pallets on the bill of lading will be equal to the number of cartons if the bill of lading is created without the orders being processed through shipping verification first.
