We have been missing orders and been sending lesser than what is asked, and mentioned in job traveler. I have also put in a checklist , but that has made little difference.
What makes it difficult to process these is we have large sized orders, , 50-60 pieces in 1 , but we are having misses, how do i Resolve this?

Can you:
  • Do check for weight (e.g., each widget is 1.2 lbs, so qty 60 should be 72.0 lbs.)
  • Do check for volume (e.g., stack widgets in a certain size box, known to hold exactly 10 widgets)
  • Pre-bundle the widgets as qty 10 per bundle. Then shipping knows to ship 6 bundles for qty 60.

Please describe the things you're referring to. 50-60 pieces doesn't seem like a "large" order, but it is if you're shipping mature oak trees.

Are these items able to be counted, actually counted, not weight counted. If so, can someone count them prior to shipping?
It;s hard for the shop floor guys to do this once boxed
We box stuff as soon as it comes off the table, we do have a check sheet for this

We have multiple sizes, that fo in a box,m but certainly something we can try
Yes and no , need to build standards for density and volumes
All of MTO so no bundling is possible

Please explain why is not possible. To bundle a stack of 10 fiberglass boards is totally possible. At one point, you have to decide if the rush to place the boards on to a box leading to possible miscounts is more important than to ensure proper quantities. Can you inform what is the average thickness of the boards?

Have you done an investigation why you have misses, is it human mistake. Do you always have lesser or you also have more?

We only have two thicknesses 1" and 2"
