To receive and store goods in a store

To receive and store goods in a store, you can process the stock order lines on which the goods are listed, or process the handling storage units used to package the goods. Inbound order lines and handling storage units Parksville, are processed according to user defined warehouse procedures. If you use handling storage units to process the goods, the order lines for the handling storage units are updated in the background. For more information about stock order entry lines, see Warehousing Order Management and How to Receive Goods. For more information, Definition of store procedures.


You can generate handling for an order line at any stage of an inbound or outbound process. These operations are described in the topics Generating Handling Units and Handling Unit Management.

Inbound Store Procedures

Various parameters are available to allow the use of handling storage units for the outbound and / or outbound procedures, as well as for specific items and stores. For more information, see Defining Handling Storage Units.

The warehouse procedures used to process the handling storage units are identical to those used to process the order lines. LN provides standard inbound procedures that you can correct to meet the needs of various types of stores. You can choose the procedural steps that meet the needs of your store, but the proposal and receipt steps are required. The warehouse procedures that make up the inbound flow are grouped under two main procedures, the Receipt Procedure and the Inspection Procedure. For more information on LN store procedures, see section Defining warehouse procedures.

Receipt Procedure

The reception procedure includes the following steps.

Receiving the Handling Storage Unit

The first step of the inbound flow is the arrival of the goods at the receiving location of the store. At this location, the handling units used to package the goods are counted and their receipt is confirmed. If the vendor and warehouse support the handling and ED units, the receipt is performed by reading the handling unit labels. Once the handling units are confirmed, the items are added to the store stock. For more information, see Receiving Handling Storage Units.

Proposal of the Handling Storage Unit

The handling storage units are then transferred from the receiving location to the storage locations or, if necessary, to the quality control locations. The storage and / or control locations are printed on an inbound proposal that is created after confirmation of receipt of the handling units. For more information, refer to Handling Unit Proposal.

Checking the Handling Storage Unit

The Check-In Procedure, described in the following section Inspection Procedure, is one of the main inbound procedures.

Handling the Handling Storage Unit

After receipt and inspection, the handling storage units are stored in the warehouse. For more information, see Storing Handling Storage Units.

Control Procedure

In many stores, quality controls are included in the inbound flow. Therefore, the quality control procedure is optional in LN. Handling storage units are subject to a control if this operation is defined for the article, supplier, or warehouse. At the control location, the handling storage units are checked. In some cases, the goods undergo various tests. At the end of the inspection, the handling units can be:

  • Approved
  • Rejected
  • Destroy

Approved units are stored in stores. For these units, a stock entry proposal listing the storage locations is printed. Once this proposal is printed, the handling units are moved to the warehouse storage locations identified in the proposal. For more information, refer to Handling Unit Proposal for Handling Goods and Handling Unit Storage.


Rejected handling units are transferred to a rejected location, provided that your organization applies the reject function and uses the reject locations. Handling units are not supported in reject locations. You must close these units, because the goods they contain are no longer processed through them, but section by article.


At the reject location, items are accepted and stored in the store, returned to the provider, or deleted. For goods that are accepted and stored in the store, you can create new handling units. Rejected items that are not destroyed are kept in the rejected stock. For more information, see Rejected Inventory and Handling Unit Status.


Handling units are recorded as destroyed if they are destroyed as a result of testing or by accident. The supplier must be paid for the destroyed goods. For more information, see Handling Unit Status. and control of the incoming handling storage units.
