1. Introduction

Have you encountered a situation where a single order is delivered in multiple packages? What particular aspects of split orders are you interested in learning more about?

In the realm of e-commerce and supply chain management, it is customary to divide a single order into multiple shipments or deliveries, known as a split order. This practice is implemented for various reasons such as the availability of items, size and weight limitations, and different shipping speeds. Splitting orders allows companies to expedite the delivery of available items, optimize inventory management, and cater to specific customer requirements more effectively.
