Packing Slip: Prerequisites, Creation and Features
A packing slip is a document that lists the items in a shipment.
It is usually attached to the goods delivered.
From a single Delivery Note, multiple Packing Slips can be created. It is useful when the shipment is packed in different boxes. Each box can have a weight and number of Items it contains. For example, if you're shipping 20 chairs in 4 boxes, each box can contain 5 chairs with different Packing Slips for each box.
