Business central allows you to transfer items between location. There are two ways this can be accomplished: Transfer Order or alternatively the item reclassification journal can be used.

When using the Transfer Order method, you ship the outbound transfer from one location and receive the inbound transfer at the other location. This helps mange the warehouse activities and provides more certainty and accuracy when updating inventory quantity.

If using the reclassification journal method, the user would simply fill in the Location code and the new location code of the item(s). When the journal is posted, the item ledger entries are adjusted per the location(s) in question. In comparison to the Transfer Order method, the reclassification journal does not manage warehouse activities.

The purpose of this blog is to demonstrate both methods.
