The activities associated with the arrival and acceptance of the vehicle. This includes processing identification of the vehicle, verification of paperwork, weighing in, providing directions to the unloading area, assigning a position in the unloading queue and parking the vehicle/container/rail car to await unloading to commence.
Receive may include initial visual inspection of the vehicle and verification of paperwork and delivery slots. As a result, in some use cases, deliveries may be rejected as part of the Receive process: Oversized vehicle, risk of contamination, overweight loads, missing paperwork, missed delivery slot (i.e. too late). These types of inspection are not product, goods or merchandize related as described in S104.
Generally the costs to Receive and S103 are part of CO11. For a distribution network the costs of these processes may be classified as CO12.
