chapter 14 reflection

April 15, 2013

In this chapter I learned about distribution centers and how products get from the manufacturer. I  learned about how small stores and small chains get truck to store deliveries where as bigger stores or chains run their product through distribution centers. That distribution centers can go as far as tagging the merchandise so when the store gets it it can go right to the floor for sale that is called Floor Ready Merchandise. There is a lot more activity than one would expect. Like Cross Docking and checking the stuff in. I was really amazed at the way they were able to limit a stores on hand inventory by using the Just in Time method.
