How does outbound Warehouse work in Business Central only using bins?

Let me show you an overview of the outbound processes in the warehouse on a location that is only set up to use bins. This means we have no picking documents and no shipping documents.

This is what happens in the video

So the first thing that will happen would be that we have a sales order.

We don’t need to release the sales order.

It’s possible but it’s not necessary.

But from the sales order, you could print some kind of picking list.

There is actually a picking list attached to the sales order and it’s just a piece of paper that the ware-house employee could get to perform a pick based on the information on the sales order.

So you can enter the bin code directly on the sales order and you can also look up at the bin code to find the correct bin code on the sales order before printing the picking list.

The warehouse employee will perform the pick and maybe by hand insert quantities that he’s picking and after that, you will have to update the sales order line manually with the correct quantities or maybe other bin codes if he had taken the item from other bin codes.

Finally, the sales order will be posted and sent to the customer and this will, of course, create posted sales shipment and it creates both item ledger entries and warehouse entries in one go, and this means that in the end and everything is done, we have the sales order which means invoicing on the posed sales shipment.

So this is the most simple warehouse flow that you can have while using bins.
