There are various reports printed before shipping to make the process more smoother and faster.  The idea behind this is to divide the outgoing orders into two categories –

(i) Simple orders are those that have one line item i.e. one product with ‘n’ quantities

(ii) Complicated orders are those which have multiple line items i.e. more than one product.

The trick is to ship all simple orders in batch (assuming the difference in system’s weight and actual weight is acceptable), whereas complicated orders can be shipped individually (as the probability that the weight difference between system and actual is more) thereby speeding up the shipping process.
