Distribution Planning

Distribution planning is the process of organizing and managing the distribution of goods and materials from the point of origin to the point of consumption. This includes tasks such as:

  • transportation,
  • warehousing,
  • inventory levels,
  • materials handling,
  • order administration,
  • site and location planning,
  • industrial packaging,
  • data processing,
  • сommunications networks.

By effectively planning and organizing these activities, companies can ensure that their products are delivered to their customers in a timely and cost-effective manner. In addition, changing market conditions and customer needs must be constantly monitored and accounted for in order to ensure that the distribution plan remains effective.

The main goal of distribution planning is to optimize the flow of goods and materials through the supply chain in order to maximize efficiency and meet customer demand. By carefully coordinating all the various elements involved in distribution, companies can minimize waste, decrease costs, and improve their bottom line.
