Fulfil orders with ease and accuracy

What is NetSuite Pick, Pack & Ship?

NetSuite pick, pack and ship capabilities make fulfiling any order a simple, streamlined experience. Define pick-and-pack strategies to dictate exactly how and when you want inventory to be used to fulfil outbound orders. Then, using the NetSuite WMS mobile app, users are guided to fulfil orders in the most efficient way, ensuring optimal inventory utilisation and ensuring orders are picked correctly the first time, avoiding costly mis-picks.

Flexible Pick Strategies

The ability to pick by first in, first out (FIFO); last in, first out (LIFO); and preferred bin, as well as adhering to pick-to-fill and pick-to-clean strategies, enables companies to dictate exactly how and when they want inventory used to fulfil outbound orders.

NetSuite Pick, Pack & Ship Features

Defining putaway and pick, pack and ship strategies simplifies these processes and decreases the training time required, enabling your staff to be cross-functional.

Wave Release

Wave release policies and templates allow warehouse managers to identify the proper orders to release to the warehouse for picking based on any criteria — customer, expected ship date, item/zone, ship method and any or all of the above. Companies can filter the orders they want to include in a wave and set the schedule for release to the warehouse. Releases may be generated and executed using the mobile application.

Defined Pick Strategies

Predefined pick-and-pack strategies enable companies to dictate exactly how and when inventory should be used to fulfil outbound orders, ensuring optimal utilisation. Pick strategies enable NetSuite to identify the proper recommended bin location based on concepts such as first-expired-first-out (FEFO), pick to clean, pick to fill or primary bin location.

Multi-Order Picking

Instead of picking orders chronologically, NetSuite looks at all orders that need to be filled for the day and directs staff to pick like items for all orders simultaneously. This decreases the back-and-forth trips required to pick the same items multiple times.

Pack and Ship

NetSuite Ship Central equips warehouse workers with packing and shipping capabilities on a mobile or kiosk device. It eliminates unnecessary steps in the preparation and shipping process and helps organisations determine the best carrier based on delivery date or location type, print shipping labels, and create documentation.

Challenges NetSuite Pick, Pack & Ship Solves

  • Chronological Order Fulfilment. Pick and pack like items for multiple orders simultaneously, minimising fulfilment time and labour efficiency.
  • Labour Inefficiency. Guide staff to pick items from the same area to fulfil multiple orders in minimal time.
  • Mis-Picks. Using the mobile device to scan items as they are picked and packed reduces costly mis-picks.
  • Inefficient Inventory Use. Dictate how and when inventory is used to fulfil orders, ensuring items expiring soonest are used first.
  • Costly shipping. Identify orders going to the same customer with the same address and shipping route and pack those items together.
