Multiple packagings

You can link various packagings and returnable packagings to the same article. You do this for the unit. You can also link various packagings and returnable packagings per unit. What is important in this, is the Factor that determines how much of the packaging is used for the unit selected. You can link up to five different packagings per article per unit.

Example:Factor and division by a packaging article

For the article brown bread, the basic unit Bread bag is added to which the following applies: Packaging 1 = bread bag with quantity/factor = 1.

Brown bread is an article that is is supplied in bags and crates. To the bread crate unit of this article the following applies:

  • Packaging 1 = bread bag with quantity/factor = 1.
  • Packaging 2 = returnable packaging crate with quantity/factor = 20 for which you select the Distribution check box. If you sell 100 loaves of bread, these are packed in 100/20 = 5 crates.
  • This unit has been defined as containing 20 basic units and can be used for the price calculation and to determine the stock.

    A whole loaf of bread is sold in a bread bag. Twenty loaves of bread are packed into a crate and delivered to the customer, Koninklijke Exhibitions B.V. There is a deposit on the crate which is therefore considered returnable packaging. The bakery that supplies the bread wants to know where these crates are,and therefore it maintains a returnable packaging administration for the bread crates.

In this example a bakery sells whole loaves of brown bread to a supermarket. You use only the specific packaging article fields.
