What is NetSuite Cross-Subsidiary Fulfillment?
NetSuite cross-subsidiary fulfillment enables companies to easily define which subsidiaries and locations can trade with one another and under what conditions. This empowers operations teams to make optimal use of inventory. And, assigning individual lines on a sales order for fulfillment and shipment from multiple locations, across multiple subsidiaries, lowers shipping costs and minimizes the need for drop-shipping and intercompany transfers.
Optimize Inventory Utilization
With the ability to fulfill orders from all locations, each site can hold less stock, decreasing overall inventory on hand.

NetSuite Cross-Subsidiary Fulfillment Features
Companies can assign subsidiary locations to sales order lines automatically based on predefined rules that take location into account. Select individual subsidiaries or all subsidiaries, as well individual locations or all locations to fulfill from.
Optimizing inventory across all locations, selling channels and subsidiaries means organizations need less stock overall and keeps overhead costs low. Define fulfillment policies to automatically select the optimal locations to fulfill from. Global Inventory Relationship records define relationships between subsidiaries and their associated locations and ensure items are assigned for fulfillment from the closest location, minimizing shipping costs.
Cross-charge transactions handle the complex intercompany accounting required for cross-subsidiary fulfillments. As part of the accounting period close process, cross-charges are automatically generated for all multi-subsidiary transactions.
Extending a seamless customer experience to the returns process is a prime way to increase customer loyalty. Make the process simple by accepting returns from any channel, at any location. Once a return material authorization (RMA) is processed, items can be received back into inventory in one or more locations, across any subsidiary. Customer expectations are met, and items are returned to inventory without delay.
