Stock update (new version)

All incoming shipments must be labeled outside the shipment with OGOship reference. Please make sure the goods are sent to the warehouse as DDP (Delivered Duty Paid). The warehouse can't accept shipments if the duty is not paid.

 

What is stock update

 

Stock update notification is a crucial part of reliable stock update handling at the OGOship warehouse. All items must be labeled with a clear EAN code or SKU code.

Before shipping your goods to OGOship warehouse you need to make a stock update at myOGO to inform warehouse staff of incoming goods. This information is not transferred from your online store or any other external system. It needs to be created in myOGO.

Stock updates inform warehouse staff of the quantity of incoming goods and expected arrival time. After arrival warehouse staff checks the amount of received goods compared to the quantity informed from the stock update. 

You can add products to stock updates either by using the xlsx import feature or by doing it manually.

All incoming shipments must be labeled outside the shipment with OGOship reference, own stock update reference or delivery tracking code. Minimum requirement is to have the online store name clearly marked on the incoming goods.

<Your company name> c/o warehouse name
StockUpdate Reference: <reference of the stock update>

Incoming goods are checked in on work days, Monday to Friday between 8-16.

When the incoming goods have arrived at the warehouse the status changes to RECEIVED. After the warehouse staff has checked, counted the goods, and placed them on shelves, the status will change to INSTOCK.

 

For peak days or special days per merchant, we have prepared a calendar for each warehouse. Letting us know beforehand ensures merchants that their bigger shipments (incoming or outgoing) are processed without delays.

Examples:

  • stock updates over 10 pallets
  • campaigns that have over double the normal volume
  • big shipments out (e.g. B2B) over 100 rows
  • new customers' 1st big stock updates

Depending on the case, we need 1-2 weeks' notice to ensure the schedules. Send an email to customer service at service@ogoship.com

The better the merchant can estimate the campaigns and such, the better we can deliver service in those cases.

 

Labels on incoming goods:

 

  • All items must be labeled with a clear EAN code or SKU code. If for some reason the identification code is not possible add on the product, please note that the items must be packed 1 SKU per 1 box
  • All incoming shipments must be labeled outside the shipment with OGOship reference, own stock update reference or delivery tracking code. Minimum requirement is to have the online store name
    clearly marked on the incoming goods
  • The codes on the physical products need to match the product info in myOGO

 

  • Create one stock update per one incoming shipment:
    • Stock update in myOGO should only have information of one incoming shipment from the supplier, and one stock update should not have information of incoming goods from multiple suppliers
    • Example of how products should be marked both on the boxes and the product packaging:
    • Clearly marked stock update reference on the box / in the paperwork:
