Easily Set up Warehouses With Bin Locations and Drop Shipment Process Within SAP Business One

Do you buy, make, and/or sell items? If so, you probably have a warehouse onsite, offsite storage facility, and/or items are drop-shipped directly from vendors to your customers. Within SAP’s enterprise resource planning software for growing small businesses, SAP Business One (also known as Business One and SAP B1), you can easily manage the flow of goods within different types of warehouses. For the businesses that are expanding their distribution, the software makes it easy for you to do things like create a new regional warehouse in the system.

Documents reference a warehouse whenever they contain inventory items that are bought, sold, transferred, received. Inventory documents like the goods receipt, goods issue and inventory transfer reference a warehouse. As a warehouse represents a location where goods are stored, the system makes it easy for you to create a warehouse, and specify where the facility is by entering location information. Even though most warehouses are created to reflect physically storing items, virtual warehouses can be set up to manage business processes where goods are shipped directly to your customers from one of your vendors.

If you have products you sell that you do not make or store, you can set up a drop ship warehouse in SAP B1. You are provided with the additional option to manage serial numbers and batches for the drop ship items. You also have the option to use bin locations as sub-levels within your warehouses. When a customer orders a product from a drop ship warehouse, the system opens the procurement confirmation wizard when you save the sales order. Next, a purchase order is automatically created for the preferred vendor of the item. The system ensures that the ship-to address in the purchase order is the ship-to address of the customer in the sales order. When the vendor receives the purchase order, they ship the product directly to the customer. The vendor invoices you for the cost of the product, and you invoice the customer for the sales amount.

To improve logistics of warehouse processes you can utilize the bin location management feature. Bin location management helps you keep track of the location of the items within a warehouse.  It can further help you optimize storage space, quickly locate items, and plan out efficient routes for picking
