Bus/Financial - Transport / Transportation / Shipping / Warehouse management
French term or phrase: préparation
This word is used hundreds of times in a document relating to warehouse management, order preparation etc. Some examples include:

"Dans un second temps, il décrit les principales actions inhérentes à la gestion d’un entrepôt (Réception, préparations, expéditions)."

"Le bac de préparation utilisé si la préparation est en cours ou réalisée..."

"La date prise en compte est celle de réception des préparation dans la gestion de stock."

Is this simply 'preparation' as in preparing the orders for dispatch or is there more too it that I'm not seeing? It just didn't strike me as being that simple in this case.

Many TIA,

Sorry, this is so widely used that it's difficult to me to find someting else that fits 100%. Maybe another one of us will be more inspired :-)

How about "order picking sequence"?

Asker: I thought of that, but 'picking' is used elsewhere as a separate entity.
