Shipments and loads
Loads, shipments, and shipment lines are generated by Warehousing or by Freight. During the outbound procedure, Warehousing generates loads and shipments for outbound order lines with status Staged, unless an actual Freight load plan is present. For more information, refer to Freight loads and shipments, Warehousing loads and shipments, and The outbound procedure.
You can also manually create loads and shipments, which is usually done to adjust or replace generated loads and shipments.
Optionally, you can manually insert shipping containers, which provide a detailed insight into the packing structure of the shipments. If shipping containers are used, a load contains one or more shipping containers, a shipping container contains one or more shipments, and a shipment has one or more shipment lines. For further information on shipping containers, see Shipping structures.
