change of storage location

one product is launched in Japan and in selling very well,

However this is causing issues in the supply chain as the Shelf life for Japan is still 14 months as against 36 months for the rest of the World.

When building for Japan a BOM and router change happens to reflect the change in expiry,

To further complicate this we have no easy way of Identifing for Shipping and Rerceiving in xxxx what lots are required for where ?

What I want to do is Ship 14 month Shelf life units direct to Japan, by changeing the issue storage location on SAP for 14-month shelf life orders. This will enable faster supply to Japan and easy identification of Japanese lots for production, Shipping and DCu2019s.

Please advise the issues which would prevent us from implementing this change from a SAP perspective

thanks in advance

      To identify inventory for Japan products, it will be wise to adopt new storage location.

      To track shelf life, I suggest you to activate batch management. using batch management, client can control the inventory by batches and thus making shelf life monitoring easier. but to activate batch management in exisitng plant, you can only apply to new materials or zero inventory and no outstanding documents materials. Search google about batch activation. In batch management, you can find shelf life expiry date and date of manuafacture in basic data 1 tab. Do a bit research on how to do batch management through google if you need more help.
