Remote Warehousing in Sage Enterprise Management

By | June 8, 2015

The concept of Remote warehousing emerged to handle all those companies which outsource their shipping and storage for their inventories to the third party logistic companies. When organization intends to use third party remote warehouse for distribution of its goods it has to ensure it utilizes electronic business document exchange system (EDI) that saves time, increase efficiency, reduces inventory storage/ transportation cost, eliminates manual errors and delays.

Third Party logistics company trades in 2 types of EDI documents and their significance are:

  1. EDI 940 is sent to a Logistic Company to request that they ship on behalf of a client.
  2. EDI 945 is returned to the client with details of the shipment including quantities shipped, Bill of Lading numbers, and packing information


Third party logistic company trades inventory to the end customer, however, it needs to ship the EDI documents generated to its clients so that the clients can keep track of inventory at their end. Any failure in the timely issuance of the notification resulted in Late ASN and penalty charges.

So in order to avoid such mishaps due to manual processes, there was a pressing need to integrate Remote warehousing software with Sage ERP X3. This integration would automate the synchronization of the EDI documents. It  would communicate and convert the EDI Sales Orders generated from the Remote Warehouse and integrates it with the Companies Accounting system

Remote warehousing Integration with Sage ERP X3 has made it very convenient for the user to reconcile order quantities with shipment quantities. This has also reduced the manual errors like wrong quantity orders/quantity shipped entered and thereby avoid any late charges.
