Distribution is an interrelated mechanism of resources, facilities and transportation systems that moves goods from producers to consumers. A distribution network is the system a company uses to get products from the manufacturer to the retailer. A fast and reliable distribution network is essential to a successful business because customers must be able to get products and services when they want them.
Effectively understanding the correlation between distribution and logistics is critical to a company's bottom line. In general, logistics refers to the distribution process within the company whereas the supply chain includes multiple companies such as suppliers, manufacturers, and the retailers.
While some companies manage their own logistics, others find it more efficient to outsource processes to specialized contract logistics companies to manage their logistics for them.
Your contract logistics company becomes a part of your distribution network and a key player in the success of your supply chain.
Office Relocation Services
A large organization in a multi-level, open architecture, office complex situated on a multi acre business campus provides both partitioned office and cubicle work space for its personnel. These environments generally consist of partial glass movable wall systems for their senior staff and acoustical panel privacy partitions for the main workforce. The company makes periodic changes to departments, work teams and operations, which affect the layout of the various floor plans on each level.
These types of set-up or relocation services are often extremely time sensitive and must be accomplished with short lead times and after normal business hours performance, so as not to interrupt the work day business operations.
