    Title:
    OM costing items at 3PL
    Summary:
    How can we cost items shipped via 3PL
    Content:

    We have 2 warehouses, one we own (internal) and another one managed by 3PL (3rd party logistics) 

    our own warehouse we can manage and reserve materials in there and as a result, we can cost the material moved from/to it so when they ship the material to customers we attach that to the sales order and offset the revenue accordingly,

     

    but in case of the 3PL how can we do that? (i.e. how can we cost the material shipping in a different system?) 

    with known that we can see both warehouses via DOO and we can reserve materials in both using the DOO/GOP

    You'll need to scroll down to the "Release Training" section of the website the link points to and then open up the "Inventory Management" option to find the links to the webcast and handout. The direct link to the handout pdf document:

      Though 3PL ships the product from their WMS you would still have to maintain the inventory org, items and inventory you own for financial reporting standpoint. When 3PL ships the orders, you would have to perform virtual pick, pack and ship process to recognize revenue from sale and COGS.

      You could have a separate cost org for the inventory org that represents 3PL warehouse and maintain item costs in that cost org.

      You should leverage Inventory Management Cloud's features for 3PL/WMS integration to support these requirements. Please refer to the "Integrate to External Warehouse Systems and 3PLS" video and handout training that's provided here: https://cloud.oracle.com/en_US/saas/readiness?offering=inventory-management&version=r11
