PGI after Invoicing process
We have a scenario wherein due to lack of space in Factory, the goods is moved to an external warehouse and from there it is being dispatched to the Customer as soon as they get the clearance approval. The Excise Invoice and pre-shipment Invoice are raised when the goods move out of factory without the PGI . The PGI is done later when the goods move out of the external warehouse to the Ship-to- location. Subsequently the Commercial Invoice is created.
For this we had mapped external warehouse as Storage location and the scenario is working fine.
Now there is a case arised where the business wants to move the goods from the external warehouse to a C&F location in the region of the Ship-to-party so that there is no delay in the dispatch.
So the cycle will be Plant--
> External warehouse > C&F location--> Ship-to-Party.
I would like to know the best way to map this scenario considering the process and the documentation.

The simplest way is to have one more storage location for C&F so that the stock transfer will happen from External warehouse storage location to this C&F storage location. From there, once goods are moved, you can do PGI.
The other option is to go for consignment sales from C&F assuming that the ship to party is your end customer. Otherwise, this is not possible. Of course, for the scenario what you had narrated, the first one above would be most appropriate one.
