Adding barcodes to the physical locations in a warehouse allows staff to quickly feed location data back to the system, and eliminates the chances of human error.
Location barcodes can be used when putting inventory away, counting inventory, or during the picking process.
Adding location barcodes to Brightpearl
Warehouse locations are managed under Settings > Products / Inventory > Warehouse locations. A barcode for a location can be specified by clicking the Edit icon to the right of the location and entering a code into the Barcode (optional) field.
Printing location barcodes
Labels displaying the location barcode can be printed by going to Settings > Products / Inventory > Warehouse locations. Select the desired locations and click Print labels.
It's then possible to specify the printed page layout, the size and layout of each label, and the barcode format you would like to use.
I haven’t specified location barcodes. Can I still print labels?
Usually, when you print a location barcode label, the barcode that appears on the label will be the code that you have specified in the 'Barcode' field against that location.
However, if you have not yet specified a code Brightpearl can generate a code for you.
This code will take the format “LOC-[location ID]”, where the location ID is replaced with the ID that you can see in the “ID” column in the list of warehouse locations.
For example, in the image above, the code that Brightpearl would generate for location B.1.A.2 would be “LOC-7”.
