Inventory Stock Type Details

Return to Overview


The Inventory Stock Type app provides an overview of the details of your inventory, categorised according to its stock type, warehouse and transportation supplier details. It displays the quantity for different types of inventory, warehouse distribution, and inventory details of the transportation logistics. Quantity of the same product, warehouses and transportation details will be auto summed up.

Please note the following details in the Stock Management function are essential in ensuring your details are accurate in the Inventory Stock Type app:

  • WH Entity 仓储公司 and WH Name 仓储名称: Details input in Stock Management function will appear under WH Entity and WH Name in the app to identify where stock in/out occurs and to easily monitor where the cargo is stored.
  • Stock Action 库存操作: Action type of the stock in/stock out transaction, defined by you. If there is value for “TO WH NAME” column, "STOCK ACTION" in the Stock Management function will appear under “STOCK TYPE” in the app. It can be ignored if “TO WH NAME” column is empty. E.g, if “TRANSPORTATION” is under “STOCK ACTION” , and “TO WH NAME” is “ABC”, then in the app, user will see “TRANSPORTATION” field under "STOCK TYPE" in the app.

  • COD Date 卸货结束日 : Refers to completion of discharge date, which means the stock action is completed. It is used to monitor if transportation has been completed. It is a key field to calculate the quantity which is still in transportation. If “COD DATE” has value and the date is earlier than the app’s date, it means the stock action is completed. Therefore, it will not be shown in the “INVENTORY STOCK TYPE DETAILS” app.

  • Stock Type 库存类型: Type of stock in/stock out transaction, defined by you. It determines the type of cargo in warehouse, which could be physical cargo or warrant. It is a key value which is linked to “INVENTORY STOCK TYPE DETAILS” app. This is empty in the app at the moment.

  • Basically, once you key in “TO WH NAME”, the row will appear in the “INVENTORY STOCK TYPE DETAILS” app. If you key in “COD DATE” with a date before and including today’s date, it will not show in app. If you key in a “COD DATE” after today’s date, it will show in app. Its “Stock Action” will appear under “Stock Type” in the app.
