Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Outbound Logistics Control work center
  2. Go to Common Tasks view 
  3. Choose New Stock Transfer Order
  4. Enter Ship From as Non-3PL Site and Ship-to as 3PL Site.
  5. Enter all the required details and perform save.
  6. Now perform Goods Issue, complete Outbound Delivery, and Inbound Delivery processes.
  7. Once it is done, go to Common Tasks view and check Stock Overview.
  8. Here you find system displays In-Transit stock with +ve and -ve quantities against an Outbound Delivery


This is a 3PL stock transfer order scenario where Outbound Delivery is created from a non 3PL Site and Inbound Delivery is created for a 3PL Site with a restricted stock.On Release of Inbound Delivery, Goods amd Activity Confirmation gets created which moves the Stock from Restricted In-Transit to External Warehouse.

Therefore, in Stock Overview user can see +ve In-Transit-Unrestricted and -ve In-Transit Restricted.
User should perform Inbound for a Unrestricted Stock to avoid the negative In-Transit quantities.
