You must set up a service category if you want to use replenishment rules to cross-dock (distribute by using a planned purchase order). The service category is linked to the vendor on the Retail FastTab in the Vendors form.

The service category can be set up to provide information about the availability of goods that are for sale and the delivery time. The service category also supports automatic and manual cross-docking.

  1. Click Retail > Setup > Replenishment > Service categories.

  2. In the Service category form, select a service category, or click New to create a new service category.

  3. In the Service category field, type an ID number. Then, in the Description field, type a description.

  4. Enter additional information about delivery dates, replenishment rules, or cross-docking warehouses. For more information, see Service categories (form).
