Managing the movement of stock from the supplier to customer is a very important process. For this, we need a transportation facility and tracking mechanism.
The module, Stock Transport Management is made for tracking the status of stocks journey. It is integrated with sales and inventory management and it adds an extra option to attach transportation vehicle details in sale order form.

After installing Stock transport management module, we have to create a vehicle for transportation.
For this, go to Sales > configuration > Vehicles > Create
From here, we can create vehicle details. The fields Driver name and Mobile number are mandatory, because, through this data, we can have the connection with each vehicle.
After the vehicle details are created we can assign the vehicle to sale orders.
For this go to Sales > Sale Orders.
In above form, you can see an option to select the vehicle in which the stock is transported to the customer.
Select a vehicle from the list and Confirm the sale order.
We can view all transport details from either Sales >Transportation Details or from the Inventory.
Click on start button when the journey starts. We can also cancel the journey and reschedule it if needed. Once a vehicle starts its journey, then this vehicle will not be active for other stock transportation. This vehicle will be available only when the journey is finished.
Just like in all other modules, we can avail the reports pertaining to the transportation.
The summary of each vehicle, the stocks they so far transported and many more other reports can be generated.
