Storage bins refer to the smallest unit of space inside a warehouse where a company can store their goods. Storage bins simplify the inventory management processes by ensuring workers always know where to place, pick and find their products.

Depending on your business needs, a storage bin can be thought of as a specific bin location, zone or area within the warehouse.

The default storage bin can be chosen per variant per Location.

Note: Storing one item in multiple storage bins in the same Location is not yet possible.
