Transfer orders between R3 warehouses using license plates

Posted on by 35

Hi all,

We have a situation where we have 2 warehouses (using license plate registration) in 2 different sites. These warehouses sometimes exchange stock and we want to use transfer orders for that. Picking and shipping a transfer order is no problem but to receiving a transfer order between 2 warehouses with license plate registration is only possible when using license plate receiving. 

This means that the complete order will be received on the (target) license plate. So if we have 5 different item codes in the transfer order all items are put on the same locatin with the same license plate. This is not only not desirable but ofcourse there are also situations that this is not possible because it doesn't fit in the location. A workaround is to receive it on a bulk location and then move the items to their own locations. Problem with the workaroun is that no license plate is being created or printed when doing a movement which makes it difficult to put an unique license plate label on each of the items.

What is the best practice to deal with transfer orders between warehouses that are using license plate registration?

We are working on AX 2012 CU10

Kind regards

Jasper

    Hi Guy,

    Yes when picking the outbound transfer order in the first warehouse all items, which originally had unique license plate numbers are put on one single target license plate ID. So once picked, all 5 different items are shipped on the same target license plate number. And we must use this target license plate number to receive the items in the new warehouse.

    Kind regards

    Hi Alina,

    Thanks for your suggestion but when receiving the transfer order via license plate receiving the complete transfer order is received in one go. So after scanning the travelers license plate the complete TO is received at once. So no option to split it by using the full button. Maybe this is how things are setup in our environment, but I could not find away to change this.

    Kind regards

    Are you physically shipping the five different items on a single 'Licence plate'?

    Hi Jasper,

    You can try to split the Transfer order receiving into different Put locations, using the Full button.

    Thanks,

    Alina
