5.1.2: Digital location split

New GLN
Same GLN
Inactive GLN

When a digital location is split into multiple digital locations, one digital location may retain the original GLN if the digital location remains with the original legal entity and keeps the same core attributes. The other digital locations will require new GLNs.

Rationale

Since one of the original digital locations remains active, trading partners that continue to interact with that digital location do not need to be informed of a change.

Examples

Company installs a dedicated Warehouse Management System (WMS) that takes over the inventory management function from the Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system.
