At this point, any special product configuration and labeling needs are addressed — various types of ASN labels are supported along with well-defined formats for many large retailers. Once product needs has been set and checked, CDS systems provide various ways to load inventory into a trailer depending on both product characteristics (things like stack height, weight, and size attributes) and order, load, and stop configuration. The goal is to make the inventory secure inside the trailer for its journey to another distribution center, store, or end consumer. Once there, it should be easy to identify and unload. Carrier management is a key part of this process.
