Packing List Generator and Tracker
Professional Packing List Template (Packing Slip). Export to PDF. Save time with products database. Record your past slips.
Packing List (or Packing Slip) is a common type of form used between trading companies. This is generally prepared by the seller who delivers requested items to the consignee (buyer). Once the items have been packed, the list is delivered along with them to the buyer’s pre-defined destination. Our Packing List Template will make this process faster and easier.
There are certain elements to be included in a formal packing slip such as Document number, Item description, units, weight, date and so on. Most companies use Excel spreadsheets to prepare packing slips. But most of the time these are non-standard, missing crucial info and lacking sleek design which does not tally with the company brand image. Besides, inputting info every time from scratch is quite time-consuming.

If you are using simple spreadsheet templates to prepare packing slips frequently, this tool may be a perfect fit for the following reasons:
