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.

  2. Select the PPL for which you want to create a preliminary package.

  3. Click Add Preliminary Packagecreate_preliminary_package.

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

  5. Enter the package type in the Type box.

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

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

    • Type the dimensions of the package in the Length, Width, and Height boxes. The volume is automatically calculated based on the dimension values.

    • Type the volume of the package in the Volume box.

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

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