Warehouse Management for Third Party Logistic Company
I have the following scenarios:
Company having 5 legal entities
One Legal entity ( X) is Manufacturing Cosmetics
Legal entities ( A, B & C ) are the Distribution Companies
5th legal entity ( Y ) is 3PL for the 3 Distribution Companies, A, B & C. Y has a warehouse which stocks the goods of the 3 distribution companies A, B and C. Inventory and goods still belongs to A, B & C
We need to implement warehouse management for Y ( 3 PL) company
Our proposition is to create warehouse structure which will address all the 3 legal entities ( A, B & C). So essentially the assumption is that warehouse is above the company code
We wanted to know the folloiwing:
1) If Y has to service all A, B and C at the same time and it needs to plan the routes for the deliveries created across the legal entities, how is this possible?
2) How will this impact the shipment planning, pick pack and the shipment cost?
Thanks in advance for input.
