Warehouse accounting – ensuring uninterrupted commodity circulation
No enterprise can function without a well-established inventory of the warehouse. Warehouses are used not only for storing products, but also in order to ensure uninterrupted commodity circulation. To do this, it is necessary to develop a full-fledged complex of works, consisting of acceptance of goods, placement and storage and delivery of goods to the client. All these works are warehouse accounting, and it is extremely important to organize it rationally and competently.
What does warehouse accounting consist of?
Warehouse accounting is a series of procedures that include documenting different warehouse operations. The main ones are:
- acceptance of cargo from the customer;
- placement of cargo in a warehouse;
- moving between warehouses (if necessary);
- release of cargo for shipment.
Most often, each operation involves the implementation of many different, smaller procedures. For example, goods are accepted according to the following scheme:
- Posting of goods from the customer;
- Taking cargo into account;
- Checking the cargo (whether it meets all the characteristics that are prescribed in the accompanying documentation).
Warehouse accounting is of the following types:
- Varietal – in this case, there are additional accounting objects in the form of certain categories, into which the cargo is divided;
- Party-based – accounting is carried out by parties that have several categories in their composition;
- Nomenclature – a separately taken commodity cargo is taken into account.
