Today, more and more companies are finding value in optimizing their distribution network. By taking a strategic approach to network configuration, they are improving service levels, better managing their inventory and reducing transportation costs.
For optimum results, it is critical to consider several key factors when determining the optimal distribution locations:
- Convenience – Easy accessibility to main transportation routes and proximity to your end customer can significantly reduce transportation costs.
- Product configuration capabilities – Moving customization closer to your customers gives you the flexibility to accommodate changing demands while minimizing inventory requirements.
- Integrated services – Integrating packaging and fulfillment with traditional logistics services can help to streamline your supply chain.
