Whether you run a single-site or multisite operation, the Vision multi-site solution is ideal. The complexity of multi-depot planning is something that few systems deal with.
Vision Distribution identifies both source and destination depots. Additional functionality provides the ability to determine a depot's capability and to plan deliveries through an alternative.
The transfer module provides control over what is sent between the depots, allowing either a fully automated transfer or a manual transfer whereby you specify which orders are to be transferred. This results in the production of a transfer manifest that is provided to both the source and receiving depot. As an additional safeguard, the delivering depot is only allowed to load plan items that are at the delivery depot or planned for transfer.
