This topic provides an introduction to warehouses and inventories in Episerver Commerce.
A warehouse is the physical place with an address from which product items can be shipped. Episerver Commerce includes the option to add and track a list of inventory locations within the system. When creating a new product variant (SKU), specify the item's warehouse and inventory information.
Episerver Commerce has support for multiple inventory locations. In previous versions of Commerce, these were labeled as warehouses. While you could have more than one, having additional warehouses was purely informational and did nothing. Inventory and shipping were recorded globally across all warehouses, and anything that worked with warehouse simply took the first record available for its details.
You can define multiple inventory locations in the system. The Warehouse label is kept to be consistent with the past, but these are any place that contains inventory that you want to track, whether it is a warehouse you are using for shipping, individual stores, a factory, or whatever meets your needs. You can even include trucks that are delivering orders.
