Outbound containers can be added to transfer orders as well as sales orders. So for instance, if I’m creating a new transfer order from whatever location, from one to another location in my system and I add an item number to the transfer order, this is all standard functionality.

Then it’s possible on the transfer order line to select the container code just like on the sales order line. I could select the container code that the transfer order should apply to the transfer order line and thereby, it’s possible for me to use the container functionality also for transfer orders.

This means now if I’m looking at my outbound container list and I just added a transfer order to an existing container in here, I can see that I have two sales order lines and one transfer order line on this container right now.

And of course, normally, you would probably add only transfer order lines in the same container when you move from one of your locations to another location, but basically it could also be if you move from whatever country and signed into another country where you do have sales orders that you want to ship directly, but you also want to fulfill your inventory on that location. This could be a scenario where you actually mix sales orders and transfer orders in the same container.
