Identify and resolve delays in parcel despatch

Parcels without labels will not be despatched from the warehouse. If an issue is stopping a parcel from moving to the next warehouse status (becoming manifested), intervention is required to prevent failed delivery promises.  

In this article we’re going to show you how to use the Unprinted warehouse parcels report to identify parcels due for despatch today and prioritise the most urgent for collection by the carrier.

  1. Filter Planned Despatch Date and click Update, so that you’re only looking at parcels that are due for despatch today.
