What is the difference between a package and a preliminary package?

A preliminary package is a conceptual package that is used for planning. Unlike a package, a preliminary package does not have any physical counterpart.

  1. On the Packing tab, select the agreement number for which you want to create a package and click Release Notes.

  2. Select the release note for which you want to create a package.

  3. Click Add Package create_preliminary_package.

  4. Type the package number in the Package Number box.

  5. Type or select the package type In the Type box.

  6. Type the number of packages you want to create, in the Number of Packages box.

    SHARED Tip Select the Lot Package check box, if the package might have more quantities of some items later. Mention such items in the Description box. Lot packages are not considered for HLO calculation.

  7. If required, type a short description of the package, in the Short Description box.

  8. If required, type a description of the package, in the Description box.

  9. If required, type the country of the package's origin in the Country of Origin box.

  10. Enter the volume of the package. You can provide the volume in one of the following ways:

    • Type the package dimensions in the Dimensions boxes. The volume is automatically calculated based on the dimension values.

    • Type the package volume in the Volume box.

      The Volume box is only editable when all the dimension values are zero.

  11. Type the gross weight of the package in the Gross Weight box.

  12. If required, type the net weight of the package in the Net Weight box.

  13. If required, enter the site storage code of the package in the Site Storage Code box.

  14. If required, select the appropriate tier number in the Stackable Tier box.

    • The Total Freight Ton value is automatically calculated based on the Total Volume and Total Gross Weight value.

    • You can also create a package by selecting an existing package and clicking Duplicate Packageduplicate_package. That creates a new package containing the same information as the selected package. However, the package items are not copied when you duplicate a package.
