License Plate Numbers – New in Sage X3 –Version 12

By | August 29, 2019

New feature introduced in Sage X3; License Plate Numbering (LPN) helps you to track information for a group of items within a container.

A single number allows to track the inventory within a container throughout the system at every stage of the supply chain.

The intention of the blog here is to ensure readers have a basic idea of not only what’s License Plate but also have some idea on process of configuring License Plate in Sage X3.


  • It allows to track various products attached to license plates.
  • The Inventory is allowed for all the internal stock movements easily using the license plate
  • Sage X3 has allowed an option of using Pallet Numbers fields in earlier version which was consumed to achieve LP fundamental, but the new version has added LP itself as a new feature.


Container Creation: The process will be initiated with the creation of new container in the system. Kindly refer the screenshot below for the same.

Navigate To:Common data>Manufacturing table>Container


Enabling Container Management: We need to ensure the container management is enabled for the Product we need to assign the License Plate Number.
