This table allows you to specify product suppliers — external objects with infinite amount of any product in stock. We have no control over this object, but we can gather its data for further analysis.

The product's selling price may be adjusted for the required objects.

A supplier cannot be set as a delivery destination. It does not accept any products.

The supplier of the selected record will be highlighted on the map.

A Supplier may be used as a shadow object for a DC. This will allow the DC to have unlimited inventory (in case of NO scenario type).

Column Description


Name of the supplier.

It must be a meaningful name since you will refer to it in other anyLogistix tables.


Supplier type. The default supplier type is “Supplier”, but it can be replaced with your own (extended) supplier type.


Reference to a particular location defined in the Locations table.


Defines the product or a group of products that the current supplier offers.

Inclusion Type

Defines the status of the given supplier:

  • Include — include this supplier into supply chain configuration.
  • Exclude — exclude this supplier from supply chain configuration. If selected, the table record will be grayed out to denote the current inclusion type. The table record stays editable.

Additional Parameters

Contains parameters of the extended object that is selected in the Type column of this table.


Here you define an icon that will represent this particular object only. All other objects of this type will keep their current icons.

Initially the default icon is set to all suppliers (can be changed in Edit icons).
