Recommendations on how to receive against multiple purchase orders

We are implementing ERPnext for a freight forwarding/consolidating company in Peru that works exclusively for us.

So there is only one customer, but we have about 19 suppliers to start. Some of these suppliers of handmade crafts produce more than a hundred items, and they will often have multiple purchase orders open at a time.  The built in way to receive items seems to assume that we know which PO they are for to begin with. Getting our suppliers to label bags against a PO# is nothing but a daydream at the moment.

My current thinking is that the warehouse team will print out the "Query Report: Purchase Order Items To Be Received" for the supplier and then manually enter the quantities on the report. They can then use the report to do the Item receipts one at a time afterward.  I had the thought that we could import the receipts, but I don't even see the option to import/export  Item Receipts?  

Any suggestions on how to make a process like this easier are welcome.  It seems that custom scripts are available for item receipts.

Thanks
Don

Don,

Using "For Purchase Order" option in new Purchase Receipt, you can import multiple Purchase Order for same supplier into one Purchase Receipt.
