S103

Unload

The activities associated with unloading the transportation vehicle. This may include inspection for damage, counting or weighing out to determine delivered volumes, taking samples for analysis and depalletizing, unpacking, repacking, repalletizing where needed.

Use Cases

  • Standard unloading a truck onto the receiving dock
  • In an airport: Unloading air containers from a plane
  • In a manufacturing plant: Dumping bulk materials or pumping from a tanker truck or tanker vessel
  • In Retail: Unloading a supplier truck
  • In a Warehouse: Unloading palletized or unpalletized product from a truck
  • At home: Unloading the groceries from the car

Notes

Typically this process is complete when the product is ready for put away or transfer. Some use cases require the unloading process to put the product away immediately. For example: For bulk products the (tanker, tanker truck or dump truck) unloading process cannot be separated from the put away process (storage tanks).

Generally the costs to S102 and Unload are part of CO11. For a distribution network the costs of these processes may be classified as CO12.
