Warehouse to Warehouse Shipments

We use both methods (transfer order and misc shipment/inventory transfer) for two different situations. When moving inventory to our second plant we use transfer orders. Same for us, it makes our accountants happy too! (It took us a while to get the GL setup for transfer definitions in the plant file so it tracked the way accounting wanted it to.) We also use the other method. We have some dealers that stock our merchandise at their location. These "stocking warehouses" are associated with one of our plants. When moving inventory from a plant to the dealer we use misc shipment/inventory transfer because a transfer order only works for plant to plant, not warehouse to warehouse within the same plant. I really liked Charlie's suggested enhancement on this method by adding a transfer warehouse and bin for in-transit visibility.

We have a plant with warehouses in two countries. We need to move product between the two warehouses within Vantage 8.03.409C. Is there a way to create a packing slip in warehouse A and ship to warehouse B? This would give us paperwork for US customs as well.
We use miscellaneous shipment entry to produce a packing slip for our trucks when we move inventory to a customer stocking warehouse. No inventory items are updated in miscellaneous shipment entry. The transfer of inventory items is handled with the Inventory Transfer program. You may need to modify the Miscellaneous Packing Slip (it's a Crystal Report) to make sure it has all info needed for international paperwork. We also make use of transfer orders when moving inventory between our two manufacturing plants. However, you can only use this feature if you have multiple plants set up. Help on transfer orders in 8.03.409A states that "If you are transferring parts within the same plant, use the Inventory Transfer program.".

Sue's answer is spot on.



What I have always recommended was create a transfer warehouse with
Bins as the destination.

* As the materials are staged for transfer, do the inventory
transfer from the shipping warehouse to the transfer
warehouse-destination bin.

* Then do the miscellaneous packer. As you still own the
materials, the materials stay on-hand but you know that it's on its way
to the other warehouse.

* At the receiving warehouse, do another inventory transfer from
the transfer warehouse-bin to the receiving warehouse-bin.



This could probably be facilitated with service connect by taking the
list and having service connect do the transfers at each end.

Good idea, Sue.

As an alternate, we use plant to plant transfers for a similiar thing. This does move material and also puts the goods in-transit while they are between locations which makes the accountants happy.
