Cartonization profiles

Cartonization is the process where the P4 Warehouse system decides what will be packed into each box. Depending on the box size and weight limits the system will decide how many boxes you will need and what sizes.

Cartonization Profile setup provides a tool to create different profiles depending on the compliance regulations of your client or small parcel carrier (e.g., FedEx has a 150lb weight limit per box).
