Managing Batches of Shipping Orders in Warehouse Manager

The Warehouse Manager creates and works with batches of shipping orders. A batch is a set of shipping orders that are managed together. For example, a batch of shipping orders could be assigned to a particular warehouse employee. The pick labels and pack sheets for the shipping orders in the batch can all be printed together, making it easy for the employee to process the required paperwork.

In Order Management Fulfillment Center: Warehouse Manager, you can create and manage shipping order batches.
