This message can appear when you're trying to confirm a PO for a product that needs to be dropshipped from your vendor to your subcontractor
This warning message is related to the configuration of the dropshipping operation type used in the dropship route .
When dropshipping products directly from the vendor to the subcontractor you have 2 configuration options :
Use the standard “Dropship” route and add a new rule to transfer the products from the vendor location to the subcontractor location.
Option 1: link this new rule to the standard “dropship” operation type.
Option 2 : link this new rule to a new “custom dropship” operation type
!!! Create this “custom dropship” operation type by DUPLICATING the standard “dropship” operation type!!!
If the operation type is created from scratch→ You will receive the following error warning message “For the product “X” the warehouse of the operation type (mycompany:Dropship to subcontractor) is inconsistent with the location of the reordering rule -Change the operation type or cancel the RFQ”
→ The main advantage of option 2 is that you can organize your dropshipping actions per subcontractor by creating a custom operation type for each subcontractor, which creates a clear overview.
