Goal

Have a request to use Shipping Trucks as Subinventories under a WMS enabled Warehouse/Inventory Organization.

Goods are considered unsold and are still in Inventory when they are in Trucks. Goods are considered sold only when they are delivered by the salesmen/driver. The latter, users will issue an invoice through a mobile handheld device during delivery.

There are picking locators in the warehouse, and when sales orders are received, they are picked from the warehouse and then loaded into the lorry. According to Oracle WMS, if using the Line Flow Generic workflow in Order Management, move orders will be automatically created (pick wave move orders) which can only be transacted using Oracle Mobile Supply Chain Applications and WMS picking rules. When picking is done in WMS, the goods go to the default staging subinventory and are then shipped to Trucks and considered sold (ship confirm).

Considering the above issue, is it possible to bypass the staging subinventory, move the stock directly to Trucks (which are different subinventories) and then ship?
