Distribution warehouses are often located along the ring roads surrounding population centers or, depending on the nature of the goods, centrally in a region.
What happens in a distribution centre?
A distribution centre is designed to store goods in a central location for a short period before onward transport to retailers in the distribution centre’s service region. It requires, in particular, good loading and unloading facilities.
E-commerce warehouses are a variant of logistics warehouses that specialize in serving the growing e-commerce industry. E-commerce warehouses often have equipment for packing goods prior to delivery to distribution points where the final customer can collect their goods. They can also be centrally located in urban areas or otherwise easily accessible to consumers in order to streamline and improve the supplier’s distribution even in the last stage – to the consumer.
