When handling orders at the packing line, you might want to band boxes together.
Banding consists on stacking boxes, adding the height and weight, and keeping the top width and length from the biggest box being banded.
Cartons are scanned separately, while techSHIP will keep and add the values respectively.
This scenario can be approached in two different ways:
a) Use Predefined Boxes: You will need to create barcodes to target predefined boxes at the Client profile you'll band boxes for, and these will be scanned by name as you handle the order at the packing line
b) Use Hardcoded Values: You will need to create barcodes with hardcoded dimensions and weight, which doesn't require any additional setup at the client level, and these will be scanned as you handle the order at the packing line
NOTE: This feature is only available through the techSHIP Desktop Client.
