One Way Transfer


The One Way Transfer module within Skustack’s Transfers tab is a simple way to receive multiple items/units into bins or to remove them from bins. While this can be done individually from the Product tab through a simple adjustment, a One Way Transfer groups the items together, making it easier to trace and filter by the Transfer ID.

One Way Transfer differs from Warehouse to Warehouse Transfer in terms that you don’t have to specify where your transfer is coming from when you transfer inventory in your warehouse. Additionally, when transferring inventory out, you do not need to specify the destination of the transfer.

Creating and working on one way transfers is possible through the Skustack App, while monitoring their progress, exporting data, and closing completed transfers can be done through the Skustack Admin.
