Locations in Odoo Warehouse Management System (WMS)

Let’s get Familiar with Locations in Your Odoo Warehouse Management System:

1. Internal Location: Internal Locations are actual locations that are part of your own warehouse. These are the places where loading and unloading of products take place; for instance, Shelf or a department store.

2. Customer Location: Customer location does not come under your warehouse; rather, it is a space near-final destination of goods.

3. Vendor Location: The vendor location does not come under your warehouse; rather, it is a space within your Vendor’s warehouse.

4. Transit Location: Transit Locations are the type of locations used for the internal transfer of goods from one warehouse to another.

5. Inventory Loss: Inventory Loss comes into use when you want to place the lost products out of your stock due to inventory loss.

6. View: View is a type of virtual location that is used to manage the hierarchical structure of the warehouse; for instance, when you define a short name in a warehouse at that time it creates a view type location that has the same name as the short name of warehouse.

7. Production: Production is a virtual location that is used to manage the manufacturing process.
