When products are in more than one location on the system then the stock allocation picking logic for that product is as follows (However if location type priority is in use - please see this guide Location Type Stock Allocation)
- If any best before dates are found - the system will allocate stock based on a FEFO basis (First Expiring - First Out)
- If no expiry dates are found, then the system will look for a default pick location for the product & allocate stock from that location.
- If no default pick location is found then the system will look for the location with the lowest quantity found (to prevent part empty locations around the warehouse) & allocate from this first.
- If all locations have the same quantity of stock for that item, then the system will allocate stock on a FIFO based (i.e. the location where stock was first booked into - the oldest location allocation first)
Default Pick Locations
If you would like to set default pick locations for products up, please see the following guides:
Displaying Default Pick Location for Unassigned (unlocated) Stock
It is possible to still display the default pick location on the despatch note, even if you have booked the stock into an unassigned location.
