Abel offers a number of stock transfer processes for moving stock between bins, locations, branches or companies within your Abel installation.

In this blog, we’ll discuss a simple stock transfer that moves stock between branches and provides Goods in Transit capability.

Inter-Branch Stock Transfer through Goods in Transit

Abel’s inter-branch stock transfer streamlines the movement of goods between branches using a single transfer document with goods-in-transit accounting.

Process Overview:

  • The “requesting” branch creates the transfer and places it on hold to indicate it’s ready to be picked  
  • The “supplying” branch picks the stock and posts the transfer – Abel moves the stock out of the supplying branch’s stock and into goods in transit
  • The “requesting” branch receives the stock and closes transfer – Abel moves the stock out of goods in transit and into the “requesting” branch’s stock

Both branches can use the “Inter-Branch Stock Transfers” enquiry to see the transfers of interest to them:
