interim storage area

Warehouse Management (MM-WM)

A logical or physical storage area used to exchange data between two SAP systems.

Movements involving the Inventory Management System (IM) use storage areas that are defined as storage types in the WM system and as storage locations in the IM system.

For example, when a goods receipt is posted in the IM system, it is also recorded as having arrived in the goods receipt area in the WM system.
