A warehouse is a commercial building for storage of goods. Warehouses are used by manufacturers, importers, exporters, wholesalers, transport businesses, customs, etc. They are usually large plain buildings in industrial areas of cities, towns, and villages. They mostly have loading docks to load and unload goods from trucks.

To go to Warehouse, click on Stock and go to Warehouse under Setup. You could also switch to 'Tree' View or simply type warehouse tree in the awsone bar.


In ERPNext, every Warehouse must belong to a specific company, to maintain company wise stock balance. The Warehouses are saved with their respective company’s abbreviations. This facilitates in identifying which Warehouse belongs to which company, at a glance.

You can include user restrictions for these Warehouses. In case you do not wish a particular user to operate on a particular Warehouse, you can refrain the user from accessing that Warehouse.

Note: ERPNext system maintains stock balance for every distinct combination of Item and Warehouse. Thus you can get stock balance for any specific Item in a particular Warehouse on any particular date.
