Hi, is anybody else on the trial version of the new EFN programme? Effectively re-introducing the EFN since it was closed down after BREXIT.
It has completely altered our Manage FBA Inventory report.
We use almost exclusively the Manage FBA Inventory report for all stock enquiries, accountancy reporting and stock management planning.
In the past few days the Manage FBA Inventory Report has changed, since the EFN went live.
Before Brexit the Manage FBA Inventory report downloaded in the UK and the EU were identical as we were using the PAN-EU program.
After Brexit the report showed us exactly what stock was in what disposition and stage of arriving into the UK or EU. i.e. they were completely separate reports and were used to handle supply of stock to the UK and EU separately. Which was of course required as they needed to be dealt with completely separately.
Now the reports seem somewhat combined. My German, Italian, Spanish and French Manage FBA inventory reports are showing stock as fulfillable that is not physically in the EU, It seems to have UK stock numbers upon some lines on EU SKUs (not all SKUs I may add, which is baffling me even more) . I understand as this is probably because we have turned on the EFN recently.
However this leaves us no report that is equivalent to the Manage FBA Inventory, which was used 100% to manage the flow of inventory by us, and many FBA businesses. It used to show us what was planned stock going in, at warehouse, what condition. Now we do not seem to have a report that will exclusively tell us what is in the UK and what is in the EU that will include stock that is planned, on it’s way, i.e. the total amount of stock considered by Amazon.
Please can anyone help assist in this. I know the program is only a fee days old and perhaps this is an oversight by Amazon to change this report in such a way? We are now in a position where the Manage FBA Inventory report is now different in UK vs the 4 EFN countries and again vs the non-EFN EU countries, neither showing planned+physical stock for those areas exclusively but combined somewhat and this makes it impossible to plan now to send stock across the UK/EU border.
There is effectively no singular report to show stock on route and phycically in UK or EU warehouses, I think?
