Storing products and maintaining proper inventory form an integral part of the smooth functioning of any successful business organization. Odoo provides a comprehensive warehouse management system with advanced features to manage operations related to inventory.
In this blog, we will discuss basic terminologies and steps to create a new warehouse in odoo14.
-> In Odoo, a Warehouse is the physical structure where products are kept. Creating multiple warehouses and transfers between those are possible.
-> A Location is a distinct area within our warehouse. It can be considered as a sub-location of the warehouse, as a shelf, a deck, etc. Location is specific to one warehouse only and not possible to link one location to multiple warehouses.
