Create and Update a Warehouse

Warehouse creation is setup using the Warehouse Manager. Before assigning attributes to a new warehouse, it is good practice to search on the name of the new warehouse to verify that the name has not already been assigned. The General Attributes for warehouses include:



Path: Back Office > Products > Warehouse Manager


Follow the steps below to assign general attributes to a new warehouse.





In the Filter By Warehouse box, enter a name for the new warehouse and click on the New Warehouse button.



Enter the address and phone number for the new warehouse in the fields provided. The Requires Liftgate field identifies whether the warehouse is being accessed for LTL deliveries, the default setting is NO.



Select the appropriate Location Hierarchy level for the new warehouse (review Location Hierarchy Overview).



If the new warehouse is going to be a Distribution Center, check the box provided. If the new warehouse is to be fulfilled by a Distribution center, select the appropriate location from the drop-down list.



In order to use Fedex SmartPost you must set the Fedex SmartPost Hub on the Warehouse and you must select the Hub closest to your warehouse.
