Bin to Bin Transfer


Overview

A bin-to-bin transfer refers to the movement of inventory items from one bin to another within the same warehouse. This type of transfer is typically used to optimize your warehouse space, allowing you to allocate certain inventory items which are more in demand in one area of the warehouse than in others. For example, if a particular product is selling quickly, it may be beneficial to move it to a bin closer to the shipping area for faster processing.
