Transfer the contents of a warehouse location to another warehouse

The scenario:

The company has one large warehouse in the UK and two smaller ones in The Netherlands and Dubai.

They supply the other two warehouses from a weekly container shipment.

Preparation of the container shipment takes a few days and it is only on the last day when the final goods are loaded in. 

The Acumatica transfer order is not ideal as a shipment needs to be created before the goods can be picked.  Additions require an additional shipment.


What seems to be the better option is to create a location in the warehouse called something like “NLD Transfer” where the users can create 1 step inventory transfers during the week.  That is the easy part.  The next one is the ability to create one Sales Order transfer document for the complete contents of the “NLD Transfer” location.

A GI export of the items and quantities into a transfer order will work but is there any other way?

You can add items on a Sales Order after the Shipment is created with the Add Order toolbar button on the shipment.
