Restock Bins Module


Maintain a smooth flow of operations and use storage effectively by moving stock to primary bins, especially in high-traffic areas of your warehouse. If there isn’t enough inventory in your primary bins, you can create a Restock List to replenish your primary areas with quantity from non-primary bins. Well-stocked primary bins eliminate the need for employees to spend hours searching for items or make last-minute arrangements to fulfill orders.

Restock Bins Module

The Restock Bins module is located within Skustack’s Bin tab and allows you to easily search for existing Restock Lists or create new ones, monitor their progress, and more.
