  • 4.4.3.2 - Receive, inspect, and store inbound deliveries (10354) - Coordinating the incoming inbound materials/products. Accept the delivery of these materials and the subsequent storage. Track them at the warehouse/distribution center.
  • 4.4.3.3 - Track product availability (10355) - Keeping track of the availability of different materials/products at the warehouse and distribution centers.
  • 4.4.3.4 - Pick, pack, and ship product for delivery (10356) - Packing and shipping the product to deliver to the customer.

Notify the ERP system and/or Accounts Receivable Dept.
  • 4.4.3.5 - Track inventory accuracy (10357) - Monitoring any discrepancies between electronic records that represent the inventory and the physical state of the inventory. Look for discrepancies such as phantom inventory, which includes products that an inventory accounting system considers to be available at the storage location but are not actually available.
  • 4.4.3.6 - Track third-party logistics storage and shipping performance (10358) - Keeping a track on the storage and shipping performance of third-party agencies. Monitor logistics storage and shipping performance for third-party agencies. Use measures such as a logistics scoreboard, activity-based costing, economic value analysis, and balanced scorecards.
  • 4.4.3.7 - Manage physical finished goods inventory (10359) - Administering the movement of the finished products that are processed by the organization through its warehouses. Track goods through the use of systems such as barcodes in order to monitor the volumes available, quantity of out-flowing goods, remaining shelf life of the product, etc.--ultimately, to best manage the warehouse capacity.
  • 4.4.3.8 - Manage warehouse transfers (20957) - Shipping items from one warehouse to another in a multi-warehouse environment. A warehouse transfer is typically handled electronically in a system designed to replicate the physical processes involved with transferring items from one warehouse to another.
