While warehouses store product, the purpose of a distribution centre is to keep goods on the move, getting them in and out swiftly and effectively.
Distribution centres support high-velocity supply chains. They provide a facility to consolidate shipments and break down bulk shipments into smaller loads for customer distribution. The effectiveness of a distribution centre lies in its ability to promptly receive, store, process, and send out goods. Safety is paramount in high turnover distribution centres. Stored goods must be protected from moving vehicles, pedestrians must be protected from moving vehicles, and moving vehicles must be protected from each other.
