Shipments Module for shipment verification
Use the EdgeTRAC Shipments Module for shipment verification in operations where no packing is required; for example when shipping pallets from a packaging plant. For other applications see the EdgeTRAC Pack & Ship Module.
EdgeTRAC downloads shipment order lines for lots from your WMS or ERP system on demand at shipment verification processing. It provides exception feedback if the shipment order does not exist or has already been shipped.
To ship non-serialized containers, scan serialized barcode labels and associate the containers to a shipment order. EdgeTRAC can process 1D and 2D barcodes and decode all elements of the barcode. Manual entry is also allowed to support exception processing.

EdgeTRAC retrieves serial number hierarchy information from your serial number management system for each serialized container you process. It verifies that the serialized containers are in a shippable status and are not duplicated for any active, suspended or shipped shipment order.
EdgeTRAC ensures that the shipped products match the expected GTIN and lot on the shipment order. It does not allow over shipments, but can be configured to allow authorized users to perform short shipments. The system displays expected and actual quantities and can display a list of all serial numbers that have been associated to an active shipment order.
The system supports multi-step shipping processes. You define configurable workflows for your facility, and can include systematic verification steps to replace manual cross-checks throughout your shipping process.
You may suspend the shipment verification process for one or more shipment orders while you continue to process others. EdgeTRAC saves all in-process information, and updates your serial number management system / EPCIS repository upon completion. It maintains a log of all scanned records for completed shipments.
After shipment verification, EdgeTRAC can accept a shipment confirmation from your WMS or ERP system, or provide a shipment confirmation to it. EdgeTRAC sends your serial number management system / EPCIS repository the association of serial numbers to shipment order.
