I wanted to ask if there is already a transit process in Acumatica or planned?
The process looks like this:
A company from Germany orders e.g. metal in China. This metal is brought from the supplier in China to the port and shipped on a ship. The ship is on its way to Germany for at least half a year. In Germany, the goods are transported from the ship to the company, which then ships the material to the customer. In the ERP this should look like this:
Purchase order to the main warehouse-> Stock transfer to fictitious storage location "Transit", as soon as the goods are loaded onto the ship in China (these transit transactions are to be displayed in an overview, from which the goods receipts can be created) -> As soon as the goods have arrived in Germany, a goods receipt is to be created from the above-mentioned overview, whereby a stock transfer from the storage location "Transit" to the storage location "Main" is triggered in the background and the goods receipt can then be posted as usual. The stock may only be displayed on the fictitious storage location during the transit.
The background of this process is that the goods, which are on the ship for a long time, can be tracked and the customer can be given more accurate delivery times. The buyer can see how much merchandise is still in transit, when it will arrive, and whether delivery times are being met. This allows for a quick response if the delivery is delayed.
Is there a workaround to this process?
