What are On-Order Materials or Materials?

On-order materials or materials refer to goods or materials that have been ordered by a company but have not yet been received or paid for. In the shipping context, on-order materials may be tracked as part of a company’s inventory management system to ensure that sufficient inventory is available to meet production or sales needs. The shipping of on-order materials may also be arranged in advance to ensure that the materials are delivered on time and in the proper quantities.
