Re: Stock Moves for In-Transit Location (same company, v7)

while I've never coded for this platform, logistics is my hobby. and I've made some weird moves in my day,  think 50 piece moves, each piece over 64 MT from all over the word having to arrive within 7 days at 1 location, not fun LOL
some things you might what to model ( the cargo flow )

Purchase order issued to supplier
purchase order has delivery address and product order
supplier place it on a truck with product
supplier then gives a bill of lading with date stamp, product in truck, and estimated delivery date ( indexed to PO )

( skip live tracking  )

truck arrives at deliver terminal 
bill of lading received
truck accepted and given an unloading bay assignment
product unloaded at bay, counted, confirmed and signed for

product sorted and given inside stock location OR cross docked for outbound ( product was sold before arrival so it is just moved from unloading bay to loading bay )

your problem while very easy to see, seems to be hard to implement 
because the Purchase Order ( PO ) does not seemed to be confirmed at the unloading bay " intransit location "
your "intransit" is really a discharge/receiving bay and that's the  first confirmation point that you have product.

ALSO rename intransit to something else. with cargo, in transit has a movement definition
as in ... on truck going somewhere, on pallet in warehouse moving to loading bay or a waypoint storage location like a hub.

i hope this helps out and adds a little bit of luck to your solution

Transfers between internal locations from memory don't create entries.  Maybe if you chained Internal -> Virtual -> Internal

I have a use case that I am having problems configuring Odoo to support:

Receive goods first into an InTransit location, with corresponding debits to "InTransit" (credit from Stock Input).
Receive goods second into a Stock location, with corresponding debits to "Stock" (credit from InTransit).

The purpose is to see a value of inventory assets onsite and offsite. 

1) Company creates a standard PO. (OK, Incoming QTY set correctly)
2) Company receives stock into In Transit location. (OK, )
3) Journal Entries created: Debit to "Stock Valuation - InTransit" via Credit from "Stock Input". (OK)
4) Company receives stock into Stock location. (OK)

This is where I can't work it out:

5) Journal Entries created: Debit to "Stock Valuation - Stock" via Credit from "Stock Valuation - InTransit"

I have setup 'Transit'  as an Internal Location, chained to Stock, manual, Getting Goods (child of stock) and have played with the way this is setup.

Has anyone done something similar?  Am I thinking about this the right way?
