This WIKI page intends to provide information about standard process of transferring packed between the locations.


This WIKI page shows step by step information of the instructions for HUMO transaction which handles besides some other movement a specific one of HU transfer. It has screenshot used in this example as well as hyperlinks to other forms of HU transferring.

HU Transfer Summary

In this case a known HU number is selected to be stored in a specific location in this case it is from a HU managed storage location into a  non-HU managed storage location.  The goods in this case were already packed in the original location. Even though HUMO does also some other process like In unrestricted-use stock, In inspection stock, In blocked stock, they are not covered in this specific article.


The example below was done after having created some HUs of that material and packed in a non-HUM storage location. So, basically the idea is to select it and inform the destination data in that transaction, no delivery nor posting change are created for the 311 movement, but a material document.

 Go to transaction HUMO:

  1. Enter a known HU number in Handing Unit field;
  2. Depress F8 key;
  3. Select the HU shown in the screen;
  4. Through menu Edit find the option to perform the transfer you wish to perform (in this case a simple transfer between location);
  5. Enter the target  storage location;

A material document is generated, the HU is now located in the destination storage location.
