WISL WebTrip/WDC Scenario

bulletOrders are entered directly through a web based entry screen.
bulletWebtrip invokes the crate modeling routine whereby goods are consolidated into larger shipping units, such as crates
bulletWebtrip provides for modification of order composition to create an optimal modeled trip. Saves a record of each order that is modeled in a trip and sends it to the corporate order entry system as an EDI 850 or XML transaction.
bulletWhen DCS receives the modeled order from the corporate order entry system, it includes it in the pre-modeled trip.
bulletAll relevant labels, packing slips, bills of lading and trip documents are generated
bulletOrder/Shipment tracking and analytical report facilities are available at all points in the distribution control path
