Warehousing & Distribution

WAREHOUSING & DISTRIBUTION

 

A warehouse is typically viewed as a place to store inventory.
However, in many logistical system designs, the role of the warehouse is more properly viewed as a switching facility as contrasted to a storage facility.

Shipment consolidation is an economic benefit of warehousing. With this arrangement, the consolidating warehouse receives and consolidates materials from a number of manufacturing plants destined to a specific customer on a single transportation shipment.
The benefits are the realization of the lowest possible transportation rate and reduced congestion at a customer's receiving dock. The primary benefit of consolidation is that it combines the logistical flow of several small shipments to a specific market area.

Consolidation warehousing may be used by a single firm, or a number of firms may join together and use a for-hire consolidation service.

Through the use of such a program, each individual manufacturer or shipper can enjoy lower total distribution cost than could be realized on a direct shipment basis individually.
