Create Packaging Group

This document explains how to create and maintain packaging groups in 'Packaging Group. Open' (MMS047).

The packaging group is used in the process of packaging items into cartons. It controls which type of packaging the system may select.


The packaging group associated with a warehouse/dispatch policy combination determines how the cartonization is handled. Only packaging associated with the packaging group defined in the Cartonization settings in 'Cartonization Selection Table. Open' (MWS185) may be selected.
