Phocas - Ship Type Background Information
This is using the line item shipping source code in prelude. Mini table from prelude follows. This gives us a quick look at whether we are shipping from our stock or ordering from a vendor. (W,T, and ### values would indicate we utilized our existing stock, B & D would be we had to order new stock from the vendor to cover the shipment either directly or ordering into stock to ship out). Buyer Queue specifically means the item was not in stock, but instead of drop shipping we just backordered to the warehouse for the buyer to include in their next stock purchase due to minimum order quantity, inventory to cover already in route, etc. This is actually really powerful in that we can then drill down into the D and B values when we are evaluating our stock position and what new items to consider adding to our stock program, or on an account manager level what he might need to bring in as customer specific stock to support a large customer.
