When receiving JIT items, it would be inefficient to receive the items and store them with the rest of your inventory. The JIT items have already been claimed by orders so they must be shipped out shortly after they are received. Moving them into your inventory would create unnecessary labor as they will likely be picked for fulfillment in short time.
To prevent unnecessary labor, we recommend the following:
- Using the Container Manager tool, create a staging container specifically for JIT items received (with an area of Pickable). Place it near your shipping stations.
- Notify RetailOps Support so we can configure the container on the back-end to be prioritized for picking.
- When receiving JIT items through the Product Receiving tool, receive them into the JIT container.
When creating shipment waves to fulfill the orders with JIT items, your picking team will be directed to pick from the JIT container.
