Off site warehouses

    Hi,

    We have a need to setup off site warehouses.  We are running AX2012 R3 but using the standard Inventory Control; we don't have a need for advanced warehousing at this point.  We plan on using 1 site and using a replenishment with transfer orders.  Is anyone running off site warehouses?  Anyone using transfer orders?

    I am hoping for some local contacts to understand this better/faster than reading MS docs :-)

    Thanks,
    Elena

    Hello Elena
    I think you will get quite a bit of responses.
    I know many customers who have off site warehouses. If they use advanced warehousing for their own warehouse, these off site warehouses are typically regular warehouses.
    Yes, transfer orders from and to these warehouses, either manual or suggested by MRP with planned transfer orders.
    Not knowing whether these off site warehouses would be used for materials and components or for your sellable end -items....
    Some customers expected the same ATP/ CTP functionality for Transfer orders as for Sales orders but that is not the case.  Greetings!

    Elena:
    I have used transfer orders for multiple warehouses for 2009 and 2012.  (We don't here currently).   They are well proven and robust in my experience, and not hard to get started with.
    Would you be using planned transfer orders with MRP?
