License Plate Confirmation Labels

Overview

Shipping the right items to your customers is a crucial aspect of day-to-day warehouse operations. Skublox’s License Plate Labels offer a streamlined solution that allows you to greatly improve your sorting and shipping processes. They serve as a form of confirmation that the items in the order have been accurately put together and are ready for shipping, thus adding an additional layer of precision and releasing the slot on your Skublox wall. License plate labels can either be printed from the Skublox Hub, or through Sellercloud’s Skustack and Shipbridge applications.

After completing the sorting process on your Skublox wall, it is important to empty the slots to avoid delays and interruptions in your sorting operations and maintain a smooth process for future orders. This is where license plate confirmation labels come in!

Prerequisites

To take advantage of this workflow, configure your license plate preferences in the Skublox Hub. To do that:

  1. Navigate to the Skublox Hub portal at https://xx.hub.skublox.com (replace “xx” with your team name) or open the Skublox Hub app.
  2. Enter your login credentials.
  3. Select Preferences.
  4. Locate the License plates are supported setting and click Configure.
  5. Adjust the settings based on your workflow.

Upon fully sorting an order with Skublox, the Shipper light will turn green, indicating that it is now ready to be shipped. At this stage, you can print a license plate confirmation label to release the slot and avoid having to ship the order immediately. Later on, you can scan the license plate label in Shipbridge to retrieve the confirmed order and proceed with shipping. To print a license plate from the Skublox Hub:

  1. Navigate to the Skublox Hub portal at https://xx.hub.skublox.com (replace “xx” with your team name) or open the Skublox Hub app.
  2. Enter your login credentials.
  3. Select Walls and choose your desired wall.
  4. Select a slot that is fully sorted and ready for shipping.
  5. Click License plate & empty.

Configure Shipbridge

The most common way to ship your orders after sorting them is by using our Shipbridge application. Shipbridge gives you the ability to ship orders out with unparalleled flexibility. Furthermore, it is fully integrated with Skublox!

If you have chosen to print your license plate labels from the Skublox Hub, follow the instructions outlined here to proceed with shipping.

Your barcode type in the Skublox Hub preferences must be set to Confirmation Code.

If you prefer to use Shipbridge to generate license plates and release Skublox slots, follow the steps below:

Step 1: Designate Machine 1 as a “Confirmation Station”

  • Scan all the items for your sorted orders and release the slots on your Skublox wall.
  • After scanning the items, a unique Confirmation Code number will print.

Step 2: Designate Machine 2 as a “Shipping Station”

  • Instead of scanning individual items or order IDs, scan the Confirmation Code printed by Machine 1.
  • After scanning the Confirmation Code, Shipbridge will proceed to print the shipping label.

Scanner Side

Once an order is fully sorted, navigate to Scan and Ship in Shipbridge to release the slot on your Skublox wall and confirm the order is ready to be shipped.

To utilize the Confirmation code workflow as a scanner and prevent sorting delays, enable the Use Confirmation Code process to scan items and Don’t allow orders to be scanned if the confirmation label is printed already checkboxes in the Scan and Ship tab.

To do that:

  1. Navigate to Menu > Options > Scan and Ship and enable both settings as shown below.
  2. Next, click Scan and Ship to search for your fully sorted order and scan its SKUs. Optionally, enable the Shipbridge setting Show order selection by SkuBlox barcode to allow searching by the slot barcode.
  3. When you scan all items on the order, the system will generate and print a confirmation code instead of shipping the order immediately.
This action will mark the order as sorted and exclude it from future sorting attempts.

Continue scanning orders as needed to release more slots on your sorting wall. Once completed, the shipper can scan the confirmation codes and proceed with shipping.

Shipper Side

With the orders now having license plate confirmation codes, navigate to Scan and Ship in Shipbridge to generate shipping labels.

To utilize the Confirmation code workflow as a shipper, enable the Use Confirmation Code to ship orders and Require Confirmation code before printing invoice checkboxes in the Scan and Ship tab.

To do that:

  1. Navigate to Menu > Options > Scan and Ship and enable both settings as shown below.
  2. Click Scan and Ship to open the Scan and Ship console.
  3. Next, scan your confirmed orders and ship them with your desired carrier.
