Change Location for Container

This instruction explains how to move containers between locations. A container is for example a pallet on which deliveries and receipts are loaded. The container number in combination with item number, location and the quantity result in a unique balance identity.


A container is moved between two locations.

The entire container is moved with the related balance identities that are stored there.

All physical stock transactions are stored in the MITTRA table.
