Stock transfers is a great way to move inventory from one location to another. Once a stock transfer ships from one DC, the inbound receipt is created under the receiving tab of the designated DC. This inbound receipt is then released and finalized.
Note: IF you are integrated with a 3PL Warehousing, you must ensure under the customer account you say YES to Exclude from order file integration with external warehouse, so they do not receive the order.
