Pallet ID

The unique ID for the pallet.

Pallet transports

If this check box is selected, the items that are registered in the journal will be moved with a pallet transport.

If you do not specify either a location that has an Inbound dock type or a pallet ID, the journal will not be posted successfully. You must select the Check picking location check box, the Check bulk locations check box, or both check boxes.

If the Pallet transports, Check picking location, and Check bulk locations check boxes are selected, the system determines where to store receipts and items from the production.

The check boxes in the Mode of handling field group can be used in the following ways:

  • No check boxes are selected – Specify directly on the journal line the location where the items will be stocked.

  • Check picking location, Check bulk locations, or both check boxes are selected – Specify a location that has the Inbound dock type on the journal line. When the journal is posted, the system identifies a location at the warehouse where the items can be stocked and moves the items to that location. How the items are actually moved is up to the legal entity.

  • Pallet transports, Check picking location, Check bulk locations, or any combination of these check boxes is selected – Specify a location that has an Inbound dock type and a pallet ID on the journal line. When the journal is posted, the system identifies a location at the warehouse where the pallet with the items can be stocked. A pallet transport is generated, and the pallet is moved to the pallet transport.

Check picking location

Select this check box to automatically identify room for the item at its regular picking location.

You can set up the picking location on the Locations tab in the Warehouse items form. Click Product information management > Common > Released products. On the Action Pane, click the Manage inventory tab, and then click Warehouse items.

Check bulk locations

Select this check box to automatically search for an available bulk location that must be used as the item’s store zone.

NoteNote

If you selected the Check picking location check box, and there is room at the picking location, the system does not search for a bulk location.

You can associate bulk locations with store zones for individual inventory items in the Warehouse items form. Click Product information management > Common > Released products. On the Action Pane, click the Manage inventory tab, and then click Warehouse items.
