Zones and Zone Setup

Zones are a collection of Bins grouped together within a warehouse. Using zones helps to split up and organize your warehouse in to multiple sections based on the layout of your warehouse . For example, you could have all bins in the freezer as one zone and the bins in the hard goods section as another or all the bins on north side of the building could be one zone. Once you have your zones established, you would assign bins to those zones. You could also have specific users designated to a specific zone so they could only pick inventory from the bins located in that zone. The setup of zones within the system will only affect the picking process.

NOTE: To learn how to assign bins to zones, please see the Assigning Bins to Zones Page.
