Consignments are created and managed in the Consignments menu.
To create a new consignment choose the icon. This will give you the option to create a Point to Point, Inwards or Outwards consignment.

Tapping in the Origin field will provide you with a list of warehouse locations to select from.
Next, select your destination. Clicking in this field will provide you with a list of Consignee addresses to choose from.

Once both origin and destination are specified, Consignly will present you with a route map.
Enter any relevant shipping information, such as container number, container size and type, vessel and voyage information.

You can now add the inventory that you are dispatching.
Locate these in your warehouse by using the Add Inventory button.

Consignly will present to you a list of all available inventory for you to select from.
This includes the location, date received, the batch and expiry, product attributes, as well as the quantity available.
Entering a quantity will automatically select inventory based on the stock rotation and depletion method on the product. Consignly may choose inventory from multiple locations if there is not enough stock to satisfy the requirement.
If needed you can choose to select stock differently to Consignly's suggestion.
Once your inventory has been selected choose Add Selected.
