As a traffic coordinator, you are responsible for ensuring optimal and timely passage of the packages and item shipments from the supplier's location to the site. Below video will help you out in learning this aspect more clearly, so let's have a look.

The traffic module allows you to view all the package related information and makes it easier for you to coordinate the traffic related activities. You can view the submitted preliminary packing lists (PPL) and packing lists, and if required, can edit them as well. If you want the supplier to make any changes in a PPL or a packing list you can request a resubmission. Only after you approve a submitted packing list, the supplier can start the packing and shipping process for the packages in that packing list.

Traffic dashboard page

Allows you to view all the approved agreements and the packing lists and preliminary packing lists (PPL) related to the agreements. The dashboard also provides a quick view of all the important information associated with a packing list or PPL. You can sort the information on the dashboard by clicking an appropriate column header. You can filter the information by clicking sort on any of the column header and selecting the filter criteria. You can also group the records by any of the column header by dragging that particular header to the top Group By row.
