Plan-to-Move

The Plan-to-Move cycle is a Term describing the collection of processes a company has implemented between developing a distribution schedule (from the distribution plan) and recording the goods receipt at the destination Warehouse or Distribution Center.

  • Creating and Scheduling Stock Transfer Orders
  • Pick, Pack, Load and Ship at origin
  • Receive, unload and put away at destination
  • Approving carrier invoices
