Monitoring the Inbound Internal Transfers


An inbound internal transfer is a receipt by batch or by stock transfer ID.


Procedure


1. In the Serialized Logistics application, select the Transfers tab.


2. To view the incoming shipments by batch, select the Inbound internal --> Receive by batch option in the drop-down. The application displays the list of received shipments by batch.

  • Sort the list by batch, warehouse, destination, or shipping date, in ascending or descending order.

Monitoring the Inbound External Transfers


An inbound external transfer is either a delivery from a supplier or a return from a client.

  • A delivery from a supplier is linked to an inbound external order.
  • A return from a client is controlled through a transfer order that is linked to the original purchase order ID.


Procedure


1. In the Serialized Logistics application, select the Transfers tab.


2. To view the deliveries from the suppliers, select the Inbound external --> Deliveries option in the drop-down. The application displays the list of deliveries received from the suppliers. Each delivery belongs to an order.

  • Sort the list by delivery ID.
  • Search for a received delivery by entering the delivery ID in the search field. You can reset the filtering by clicking on the Reset filters icon.
  • Click on the > (Expand) icon next to the delivery to view the details. The application displays the received items per line item.

  • The delivery contains two line items.
  • For line item 1, three trade items (packs) were received.
  • For line item 2, two trade items (packs) were received.

3. To view the returns from the clients, select the Inbound external --> Returns option in the drop-down. The application displays the list of returns received from the clients. Each return is linked to a purchase order ID.
