Efficient warehouse management is crucial for businesses that deal with inventory. The process of receiving goods in a warehouse is a critical aspect of warehouse management as it sets the tone for the entire supply chain. SKUBIQ’s Inward Receipts Management is a powerful software solution that streamlines this process, making it efficient and easy to manage. Let’s explore how SKUBIQ can help you optimize your warehouse operations.
Warehouse Inward Receipts in SKUBIQ
Warehouse inward receipts refer to the process of recording and tracking the movement of inward goods as they are received in a warehouse. This process typically involves the following steps
1. Purchase order receipt
The process begins when an advanced shipment notice (ASN) is received from a supplier. This notice lists the items that are expected to be received, along with their quantities and expected delivery date. If no ASN is available, a blind receipt can be recorded in the SKUBIQ software.
2. Control tower dashboard
SKUBIQ’s control tower dashboard is a powerful tool for optimizing warehouse operations. It provides real-time visibility into dock availability and allows warehouse managers to quickly and easily allocate a dock for incoming shipments. This feature and SKUBIQ’s other advanced features can help businesses streamline their operations and improve their bottom line.
3. Barcode labelling
SKUBIQ’s barcode labelling feature is a powerful tool for businesses looking to optimize their warehouse operations. It simplifies the process of inventory tracking and management, even in cases where suppliers do not provide standard barcode labels. This feature and SKUBIQ’s other advanced features can help businesses streamline their operations and improve their bottom line.
4. Racking and putaway strategies
SKUBIQ offers flexibility in racking and putaway strategies, supporting both pallet and direct putaway. The items are palletized with unique pallet license plate numbers at the staging area and then put away in the racking locations based on the system-suggested putaway business rules.
5. Confirmation of receipt
Once all the items are received and put away into different zones, the receipt of the shipment can be confirmed. Any discrepancies in the receipt, such as shortage, damage, excess, or expiry, are validated and updated in the discrepancy note, which is then reported to the supplier.
