Industrial Distribution

Industrial Distribution

The warehouse distribution industry manages the flow and delivery of products for one or more companies.  Typically these warehouses receive bulk shipments from suppliers to sort, repackage, and ship to retail stores or direct to customers.

Warehouse distribution is a growing industry, as the efficacy of logistics is more important now than ever.  Today’s warehouse can range from a simple gravity system to a complex computer controlled system of powered conveyors, sorters, robotics, and custom machines.  Whether distribution is internal or via a 3rdparty, it is important to have a well-designed system that fits all the aspects of the company’s present and future needs.  A distribution system can include storage, depalletizing, labeling, sorting, part picking, packing, quality control techniques, palletizing, shipping and countless others.
