In Odoo, a location can be referred to as a specific place inside our own warehouse or an external warehouse that we do not own. Moreover resembles a sublocation in warehouse-like a shelf, a floor, an aisle, or any other kind. One can create and configure as many locations as they need under a single warehouse.
There are mainly three types of locations used in Odoo namely physical locations, partner locations, and virtual locations.
The Physical Locations are defined for the internal locations within a warehouse for which we are the owner. They can be a shelf, department or the loading or unloading area of our warehouse.
The Partner Locations are used to show the warehouse of customer or vendor in Odoo. They work similar to Physical Locations but the individuals aren’t the owner of the warehouse.
Under Virtual Locations, one can place products when they are physically not in the inventory. They come helpful when an individual needs to place lost items out of stock (in the Inventory loss), or when an individual consider those items that are en route to the distribution center (Procurements).
