Vendor SKUs

Trading or sales & distribution businesses normally don't keep an inventory of self manufactured goods, so in such cases they make use of Stock Keeping Unit information supplied by their vendors to build up their inventory details for the smooth functioning of the business.

A vendors SKU may be directly associated with a defined SKU of the business or the business may also use the predefined SKU that the vendor uses in order to avoid defining a seperate SKU for the same.
