Warehouse Inventory Transfer

Updated 5 days ago ​by Scott McCoy

The Warehouse Inventory Transfer workflow manages the transfer of inventory between warehouses. This article addresses the process to perform the transfer of products between warehouses.

The individual initiating the transfer needs to be logged into the warehouse designated as the "From Warehouse". The individual receiving the inventory needs to be logged into the warehouse designated as the "Destination Warehouse".

The entire process can be managed with the following workflow:

  1. Create a Transfer in SKUStack - Warehouse A creates a transfer request from Warehouse B. 
  2. Manage Transfer in SKUStack - Warehouse B can then bring up all "requested" transfers, pick the quantities from the bin(s) and ship it to Warehouse A. 
  3. Receive Transfer in SKUStack - Warehouse A can then view all shipped transfers and receive the transferred units into their appropriate bins.
You can only create a transfer request(s) / receive a transfer request(s) from the warehouse you are logged into.
