    Explanation
    Receiving goods into the ALA warehouse accurately is critical because it affects multiple aspects of the warehouse operations and other departments. Customers may be waiting for the goods, so any errors in receiving can lead to delays and dissatisfaction. Additionally, errors in receiving can create a domino effect, causing more errors in other warehouse functions. This not only wastes time but also increases the likelihood of mistakes in inventory control. Furthermore, errors in receiving also impact the work of Kathy in Purchasing and Lisha in Accounts Payable, as they may have to deal with discrepancies and spend extra time resolving them.

  • 4. 

    Goods received, no matter from what source, must have a Packing Slip.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement implies that regardless of the source, whenever goods are received, a packing slip must be present. This means that whether the goods are received from a supplier, a vendor, or any other source, it is necessary to have a packing slip. The packing slip serves as a document that provides details about the items received, such as the quantity, description, and sometimes the price. It helps in ensuring accuracy in the received goods and aids in the process of inventory management and reconciliation. Therefore, the statement is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 5.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    If the ALA Receiver finds that the quantities or identities on the Packing Slip do not match the Goods received, they will indeed go to the Shortages/Damages Section in this A-Way and follow the specific instructions provided there. This suggests that the statement is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    If the ALA Receiver confirms that the quantities and the identities of the goods on the Packing Slip are identical to the Goods Received, he/she:

      He/she continues with the Receiving process

    • C.

      Tells the Warehouse Supervisor

    • D.

      Circles the quantity in Red

    Correct Answer
    D. Circles the quantity in Red
    Explanation
    When the ALA Receiver confirms that the quantities and identities of the goods on the Packing Slip are identical to the Goods Received, he/she circles the quantity in red. This is likely done as a visual indication to highlight that the quantity has been verified and matches the information on the packing slip. It serves as a way to easily identify that this step has been completed and helps to ensure accuracy in the receiving process.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because UPS and FedEx deliveries should be verified for carton quantities before signing for them. It is important to check the number of cartons received and compare it with the delivery note or packing slip to ensure that all items have been delivered correctly. By verifying the carton quantities before signing, any discrepancies or missing items can be addressed immediately with the delivery driver or the shipping company. This helps to avoid any potential issues or disputes regarding the delivery.

      Sign with an alias

    • D.

      Do not sign for it

    Correct Answer

    Explanation
    When receiving goods from a less than truckload (LTL) delivery, it is important to sign for it with the statement "Material subject to inspection" and then sign it. This is because even if the goods appear to be in good condition with no damage, there may still be hidden issues or damage that is not immediately visible. By signing with this statement, it allows for further inspection and evaluation of the goods to ensure their quality and condition.

Non-stock material should be assigned a location in Eclipse and marked as "Floating" in the Location Status Field. The receiver should also ask for assistance from a supervisor if they have any doubts about handling non-stock material to avoid errors and wasted time later. Therefore, the correct answer is 5, which includes all these steps.

  • 12. 

    For items addressed to individual employees you should always open the package before delivering to the employee.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    It is not necessary to open packages addressed to individual employees before delivering them. Opening someone else's mail without their permission is a violation of privacy. As a delivery person, your role is to ensure that the package reaches the intended recipient in its original condition. If there are any concerns about the package's contents or if it appears damaged, it is best to notify the recipient and let them decide whether or not to open it.

    Rate this question:

  • 13. 

    Any UPS or FedEx cartons that show damage should be  _________.

    Correct Answer
    Refused
    Explanation
    If any UPS or FedEx cartons show damage, they should be refused. This means that the recipient should not accept the package and should instead notify the delivery company that the package is damaged and should be returned. This is important because accepting a damaged package could result in receiving broken or unusable items, and refusing the package ensures that the sender is aware of the damage and can take appropriate action to resolve the issue.
