Locations also called Bins are the smallest unit in a particular zone of a warehouse that has a certain capacity to accommodate items.


Location Type: There are two types of location in the system.

  1. System defined: System defined can further be broken down into few types based on business needs:
    1. Receiving bay
    2. Return Bin
    3. Damaged Bin
    4. Reprocess Bin
  2. User-defined: User-defined locations are generated/imported in the system based on the size and design of the warehouse. The warehouse area can be segregated into different zones. Zones can further be disintegrated into Aisles, rows, and columns. User-defined locations can have multiple types based on the nature of the product. For example, in the apparel business you can have two subtypes:
    1. Flat: Where folder packets are kept one over the other stacked together
    2. Hanging: Hangers are used to hang some of the dresses that cannot be folded.
