Besides, there is information about the total amount of SKUs in each warehouse if you choose Magento 2 warehouse extension by Amasty.

And the extension offers all the features necessary for efficient multi warehouse stock management. Although Amasty Multi Warehouse Inventory is not the cheapest solution, it has an absolutely reasonable price.

The best thing about Boost My Shop Inventory Extension is that it is a part of the Embedded ERP suite. The Magento 2 module also covers all the necessary aspects of working with several warehouses, but it is not as intuitive as Amasty Multi Warehouse Inventory. Considering the module’s price, we can recommend this tool as a reliable solution for a relatively small budget. But it is better as a part of Embedded ERP.
