Can I have multiple pre-shipments for a package or packing list?

Yes, you can have multiple pre-shipments for a package or packing list.

Do the pre-shipments always need to arrive at the departure point of the main shipment?

No, not necessarily. However, if a pre-shipment arrives at a different place, then its packages need to be picked up by other pre-shipments to ultimately deliver them to the departure point of the main shipment. When you create a pre-shipment, you have an option to include packages from other pre-shipments that have not yet reached the departure point of the main shipment.

Remember, that you need to ensure that all the packages reach the departure point of the main shipment via one or multiple pre-shipments. In case, some packages do not reach the departure point then the pre-shipment dates are ignored by the application and the RMS (Routing Method Schedule) for the corresponding item shipments are not updated with the pre-shipment dates.
