Shipment

In Tryton the concept of a Shipment is used to help organise and manage groups of related Stock Moves. There are different types of shipment which are used for different purposes. Some of these types of shipment may also be split up into stages. In each stage stock is moved to or from an intermediate Location. Each stage’s moves form a subset of the shipment’s total moves.

Supplier Shipment

A Supplier Shipment has a set of properties that hold details about the shipment such as who the supplier is, what Warehouse it is going to and the date when the shipment is expected to be delivered.

It is made up from two sets of Stock Moves:

  • Incoming moves, these are used to move stock between a supplier Location and the warehouse’s input location, and
  • Inventory moves, these then put the stock away in the warehouse’s storage location, or one of its child locations.

Note

If the warehouse’s input location and storage location are the same then the inventory moves are not created.

Supplier Return Shipment

It is made up from a single set of Stock Moves that return the stock directly back to a supplier Location.

Customer Shipment

A Customer Shipment has a set of properties that contain information about the shipment such as which Warehouse it is being sent from, what Address it is being delivered to, and the date it is being sent.

A customer shipment is made up from two sets of Stock Moves:

  • Inventory moves, these moves are used to pick the stock from the warehouse’s storage Location and put it in the output location, and
  • Outgoing moves, these then take the picked stock and send it to a customer location. The outgoing moves are created first and define what stock needs to be sent to the customer.

Note

If the warehouse’s picking location (or storage location if no picking location is defined) is the same as its output location then only outgoing moves are created and these moves do not get Assigned.

It is made up from two sets of Stock Moves:

  • Incoming moves, these are used to move stock between a customer Location and the warehouse’s input location, and
