An Overview of Odoo 16 Product Packages and Packaging

Functional Odoo 16

You can effortlessly pack your products and keep track of them by using the Odoo Inventory management system. Making sure inventory products are moved and transported safely and comfortably will be advantageous. Products will be somewhat protected from damage by being placed in packages. As everyone is aware, it is a fundamental duty of all businesses to transport goods without any damage. With Odoo 16, you can construct delivery packages, numerous packs for a single product, and single packs for many products. Check out these packaging options in the Inventory module.

A package is a term for the actual container used to hold a single or a number of things after picking. This is a powerful and practical feature of the Odoo platform that will improve transportation comfort and ease while safeguarding your goods from harm. With this advanced functionality, the Odoo platform gives you the ability to define your product packaging based on your business requirements. For example, when a product is prepared for distribution, its quantities may be divided into two unique packages. The number of goods in each package can be noted in the database of Odoo. Make sure the Packages option is enabled in the settings of the Inventory module, as shown below.

For example, Let's make product packaging in the following quantities: packs of 5, packs of 3. A pack of 5 products had 5 products, and a 3 product pack had 3 products. When adding packaging, specify the quantity of an item in the pack and the unit of measurement. There is also a space to check the fields 'Sales' and 'Purchase'. The check box relates to where we can use these packages. Here, there are both sales and purchases; thus, the packaging can be utilized for both types of orders. This will give buyers and sellers of items in packets a more flexible way to transact.
