What is multiple location control?

Multiple location control (MLC) is an item site setting which adds granular control over how inventory is managed. With MLC enabled, you can create multiple locations within a single item site. This makes it possible for you to move inventory from location to location—all within the item site. MLC adds transactional overhead but can be useful if detailed tracking of inventory is required. MLC should not be confused with multi-site, which allows for inventory to be moved between multiple sites (e.g., warehouses, stores, etc.).
