Dropping tracking dimensions at specific warehouses

  • 1.  Dropping tracking dimensions at specific warehouses

    Posted 15 days ago
    Hi al
    we have some manufactured products that are assigned a batch at the point of being produced in ax, which we simply use to calculate expiry dates. Most of our warehouses can deal with the batches ok, but we have a 3pl warehouse where it would be a-lot easier  if we could simply drop the batch requirement on pick confirmation ( the 3pl will manage the batches on their own erp) when shipping from this warehouse
    is this possible?

    Malachy;
             Since items are released into specific companies the dimensions that are set for that company are carried throughout. May I recommend that setting up this specific 3PL as a new company. That way when you release the same item to that company you can select what tracking requirements are specific for that entry.

    hi Ted

    not an option, its very much the same company. i guess my options are going to be either modification or just work at batch level at the 3pl!

    I think there is a way to set a dimension non-mandatory, Active=Yes, PrimaryStocking=No?

    But this will apply to all warehouse, you cannot make it blank to one and mandatory to others.
