Handling half-empty transboxes

If the collected sales batch does not fill the transbox or another case, enter the following information:

  • Trade Item Unit Descriptor F7158 = CASE
  • Is Trade Item a Despatch Unit F7090 = Yes
  • Enter the measurement date of the case according to the transbox.
  • The Gross Weight F7115 of the case is the total gross weight of trade items within the sales batch, excluding the weight of the transbox.
  • Packaging Type Code F7157 is CBC, bulk container.
  • Is Packaging Marked Returnable F7219 = Yes.
  • Packaging Material Type Code F7154: leave blank if the transbox is not full.

Several sales batches may be transported in the same transbox.

Establish the half-empty transbox as its own branch in the packaging hierarchy.

If the collected sales batch fills the entire transbox or another case, enter the following information:

  • Trade Item Unit Descriptor F7158 = CASE
  • Is Trade Item a Despatch Unit F7090 = Yes
  • Is Packaging Marked Returnable F7219 = Yes
  • Enter the measurement date of the case according to the transbox.
  • The Gross Weight F7115 of the case is the total gross weight of trade items within the sales batch, including the weight of the transbox.
  • Packaging Type Code F7157 is bulk container.
  • Packaging Material Type Code F7154: we recommend filling in this field.

    • on a pallet without a GTIN-code;
    • on a GTIN-coded pallet.

Establish the full transbox as its own branch in the packaging hierarchy.
