We currently have Nav 4.0 up and running with 3 locations distributing a range of own produced items and foreign(supplier) items. We are looking at the possibilities of outsourcing some of our customer deliveries to a third party supplier. This means that we would still take orders from a customer for products A,B,C,D,E,F,G we would only hold stock of ABCD and pick from our site but products EFG would be picked at a suppliers site and delivered to our depot on a just in time basis i.e lorry to lorry. We are looking to send electronically order details to the supplier and receive some confirmation back - however i am unsure what to do with the stock. I considered using ZONES to act as a virtual zone in a warehouse. We would still need to produce full del notes our end and so we would need stock to pick. I am assuming that some modifications would be needed to the warehousing module to restrict checking stock for certain items within a virtual Zone.
Do you think Zones would be an option of dealing with this?
i will be amazed if i get any replies to this question but it is worth a go.[W]
