Tech/Engineering - Transport / Transportation / Shipping / warehouse management system
|French term or phrase: colisage déclaratif|
|Description of what WMS software can do:|
Multiples modes de préparation possible (colisage déclaratif, pré-colisage, cumul de flux, kitting, cross-docking, etc)
packing lists ??, prepacking, cumul de flux ??, kitting, cross-docking, etc.)
|calculations for proper packaging determined by warehouse operator|
This has to do with "order preparation management."
There are two modes: déclaratif et précolisage
"Mode déclaratif" means that the warehouse operator is in charge of determining the packaging process (knowing contents, size, dimensions for proper packaging), whereas "précolisage" implies that all of this is figured out before the package is put together at the warehouse.
So, the operator himself "déclares" (determines) the dimension and size of contents for proper packaging.
Please see link below.
I hope this helps.

Packing declaration/Packaging declaration
Colisage=packing/packaging, one of the key warehousing and distribution functions.
déclaratif=declaration (or in regard to a declaration)
Shippers have all sorts of information that must be entered on packages to be shipped (identification of object, value,etc). But one of the most demanding recent bureaucratic measures is the EU rules starting in 1998 requiring that the material in the packaging itself conform to certain rules, and that a declaration to that effect be provided.
For this reason I believe that "colisage declaratif" is the WMS (warehouse management System) automated system that places all this information on the packiage as it is being prepared for shipment. For an example see
