 Blocking and Unblocking Storage Bins 


You can block storage bins for putaway as well as for picking. You must block any storage bins that are no longer accessible, that have been damaged or are to be renovated, or when putaways or picks are not possible.

You can block or unblock storage bins

  • Selectively
  • On the basis of rows
  • In bulk storage with a time limit for putaways
  • For the whole storage type
  • Putaway block and picking block indicators for storage bins are only checked when you create the transfer order.

    If the blocks are set after the transfer order has been created, this has no effect on the open transfer order. This is because the indicators for the transfer order confirmation are not checked again.


    To block or unblock storage bins, from the SAP menu choose

    Logistics ® Logistics Execution ® Internal Whse Processes ® Bins and Stock ® Block.
