This topic applies to features in the Inventory management module. It does not apply to features in the Warehouse management module.

The forklift operator, who drives around in the warehouse and makes sure that all the items are placed in the correct location, can use the Pallet transports form to handle the pallet transports.

To start a transport job, update the overview by clicking Update lines.

Activate pallet transports from the Shipments form, or from the Item arrival or Production input journal. Whole pallets will start a pallet transport; otherwise, a picking route is started.

You can also request to refill a picking location by using a pallet from a bulk location in the Inventory locations form.

The order of the pallet transports depends on priority settings in the Inventory and warehouse management parameters form. You can set priorities and, thus, the sequence for input and output transport – in addition to refilling – on the Transport tab.

The pallet ID is the identification of the pallet on which an item is placed. A pallet ID consists of a number on the pallet and the pallet type. A pallet can be any container, box, or pallet that is used for the storage or transport of items. The size of the pallet is indicated for the pallet type, and Microsoft Dynamics AX can then calculate which locations have space for this pallet type and, thus, for the specific pallet.
