Internal Stock Transfers - SAP WM

To transfer stock from one storage bin to another storage bin within the same warehouse, you manually create and confirm a transfer order for the material to be moved. Since the total quantity of stock in the warehouse remains the same, stock movements that take place within the same plant and warehouse number do not require the use of the Inventory Management component.

Reasons for Making Internal Transfers
Possible reasons for transferring stock from one storage bin to another within the same warehouse include

  • Combining smaller quantities of the same material that are dispersed among several storage bins and moving them into a single bin
  • Supplying stock from bulk or rack storage to a picking area
  • Clearing bins for technical reasons, for example, to renovate a range of storage bins or for maintenance work
  • Transferring stock as soon as a specified capacity has been reached

Moving Stock from One Storage Bin to Another
As with all stock movements, to transfer stock from one storage bin to another storage bin within a warehouse number you must first create a transfer order. To transfer stock of a material from one storage type to another, you can display the bin stock of the source storage type (same as with the bin status report). From this display you can select the stock to be transferred and create the respective transfer orders.
