AX2012 R2 CU7 - Pallet transports -[Part V - Relocation]

Hi Friends,
In this last part of my pallet transport series in continuation to my previous posts here . I will show how we can create relocation pallet transport in Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R2 CU7. These are created to move pallets inside a warehouse from one bulk location to another bulk/picking location. This could be for any reason like any maintenance activity to be carried inside a warehouse or to make some space in warehouse and move goods to another location.

So for illustration let's see on hand on my test item in the system, notice goods are at bulk location for pallet 00000638_114.
Now in order to create a relocation transport, we can right click on the pallet ID and go to Pallet form

 Now go to Functions --> Move Pallet

This will open the move pallet dialog where user needs to select the toLocation where this pallet needs to be moved to.

The list of locations shown in To-Location are based on the logic which can be found in the method findFreeLocations() in table TmpWMSLocation table. It Is based on the location where the pallet is currently available:

Click OK system creates a relocation transport which can be viewed from the pallet transport handling button

 We can now go to pallet transport handling form and follow the normal process of starting the pallet transport and complete it.

Once we complete it, see the on hand of the item and we can see that goods have been moved to another bulk location.

The class used in the above process is WmsPalletMove and the code to create the relocation pallet transport can be found in method createRelocationTransportOnServer().

This was the last blog post in the pallet transports blog series. I hope this will be of help the readers to to understand the basics of pallet transports in Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R2 CU7 and it's previous versions.With the upcoming AX2012 R3 release the community is excited to see the new functionalities in the AX WMS portfolio and probably some features are getting changed in this area too.
