Carton level details provide information associated with the picking tote or shipping carton that contains various items for an order. When picking an order into a carton, a tote, or container a unique license plate number (LPN) identifier label is applied. If the order is picked and it is in multiple cartons, the carton level details for each carton will be known by SKU/product number, and count.
Details such as lot number, expiration date and more may also be tracked to the associated LPN. For example, if there is an order for 12 items and five need to be placed in one carton, five in another, and two in a third, the carton level details track the detail for each carton, including quantity, lot numbers, expiration dates, etc. This can be a fundamental warehouse system requirement if the customer base requires that type of information.
