Warehousing and distribution are two interconnected components of the supply chain management process that involve the storage, handling, and movement of goods or products from the point of origin to the point of consumption.
Warehousing refers to the physical infrastructure or facility used for storing goods or products. It involves the systematic arrangement of inventory within a warehouse to optimize space utilization, facilitate efficient inventory management, and ensure easy accessibility. Warehouses typically feature storage systems, such as racks, shelves, and bins, along with equipment like forklifts, pallet jacks, and conveyors, to assist in the movement and organization of goods. Warehousing plays a crucial role in maintaining adequate stock levels, enabling timely order fulfillment, and providing a buffer between production and demand.
Distribution encompasses activities such as order processing, picking and packing, transportation, and delivery coordination.
Overall, warehousing and distribution are integral parts of the supply chain ecosystem, working together to facilitate the efficient flow of goods, optimize inventory management, and ensure timely delivery of products to the intended recipients.
