The sales clerk sends the sales order electronically to the Shipping Department. Shipping pulls the merchandise and reconciles the quantity on hand to the quantity on the ship order. If they agree, then the shipping clerk prepares a bill of lading, enters the ship order quantities into the system, updating the Ship Order DB, which triggers the update of inventory, accounts receivable, and sales. The shipping clerk then files the ship order in the department by date.
