The Shipping module consolidates orders into shipment batches for carriers at time of pick-up. This allows a licence holder to ship multiple orders at once rather than shipping orders individually. When a user opens the Shipping module, an index of shipment batches opens by default.
The Shipment Batches index provides a high-level summary of all shipment batches saved to the user's system. Each line in the shipment batches table displays pertinent information for a shipment batch:
- ID: The shipment batch's unique ID number.
- Created At: The date and time at which the shipment batch was created.
- Status: The shipment batch's status.
- Orders: The number of orders grouped into the shipment batch.
Select a shipment batch from the list to open the Shipment Batch's Profile.
