The Shipping Station Mobile Floor App provides a quick way for warehouse personnel to ship an order in Infoplus at the point when parcels are ready to leave the warehouse.


NOTE: The Ship Parcel Order Desktop App can also be used to ship orders. The Desktop App is typically used by administrators to specify shipping details (when needed) and ship the order in Infoplus. 


The Shipping Station Mobile Floor App can be completely driven by a keyboard. It also works with a mouse and/or touchscreen, and allows for use of a scanner. In addition, the App is optimized for viewing full screen, on a tablet, or on a smart phone. 




  • Use the Mobile Floor App on cartonized or non-cartonized orders. On non-cartonized orders, you will need to indicate the weight of each carton. If you have connected Scale(s) and turned on the Scale Settings in Infoplus, the Shipping Station Mobile Floor App will automatically detect weight readings from the scale. 
  • If you track the production lot for SKUs (i.e., food items), the App will prompt you to scan each SKU. This will only occur if your item records indicate this requirement.
  • Through the Mobile Floor App, you can also print and reprint parcel labels. If you have connected printer(s) and turned on Auto Print in Infoplus, the Shipping Station Mobile Floor App will automatically print labels during the shipping process. You can also reprint labels for shipped orders.

NOTE: If you need to add a carton to an order that already shipped, do not use this process. See Add a Carton to a Shipped Order.

After changing the information, click Next. If you decide not to change the carrier, click Cancel in the Change Carrier screen. This will cancel the carrier change, not the shipment.

  8. After clicking Next in the Total Cartons screen, the Ready to Ship screen will appear.
