Receiving Requirements:

    A. How to prepare your shipments

Note - If you are not on the Atomix Platform Plan, you'll only prepare your products based on the following steps: 


  • Each box, pallet, or container must be sent to the following address:

Atomix Logistics / [Your Company Name]

11001 West Mitchell St. 

Milwaukee, WI 53214


  • Each SKU must be packaged in its own packaging

  • Each box should only have one SKU. If not, SKUs must be properly separated and designated their own packaging.

  • Each item should be barcoded

    • However, this is not a requirement. If you’d like Atomix to barcode the product on receipt, we’ll do so (for $.20 a label)

  • Each box should be labeled with the SKU - the number of boxes - and the quantity of items in each box.

    • For example, REDHAT - 1 of 15 - 50; REDHAT - 2 of 15 - 50; and so on.  

  • Email Solutions@atomixlogistics.com the tracking number, the PO (typically includes what’s inside the shipment), and the estimated delivery date.


B. How to process through the Atomix Platform 

  • First, you will begin the process by Uploading SKUs via the Inventory Tab
  • Next, you will initiate a Warehouse Shipment (WS) via the Warehouse Shipment Tab. 


Note: During the Onboarding Process, the Atomix team will walk you through each step.

FAQ:

How do you maintain inventory quality control?

Our receiving process includes two-step verification. First, once the Warehouse Shipment (WS) arrives at our facility, the WS enters our Receiving Station (RS). At the RS, our team confirms the WS SKU Quantity matches the BOL (or Shipment List) via RFID. Second, the Inventory is distributed to their Identified Location and our System confirms the SKUs location matches the receiving WS.

 Are there any costs for receiving?

Yes - Your Customer Success Manager has access to your pricing.

Why create a receiving in the first place?

Imagine several boxes of a product are dropped off. No one recognizes the item, there's no account name ascribed to the boxes. Without a proper receiving protocol in place, managing inventory would be challenging and disorganized. For that reason, a receiving is necessary to ensure that your inventory is identified and processed properly.

 Are there any best practices that you recommend?

We recommend that all of your goods have outer packaging so as to prevent damage and/or becoming dirty. This is especially true of all apparel.
