Redesigning or optimizing distribution centers can be necessary for a number of reasons. Changing volumes, an expanded assortment of items, or changes to distribution channels and network structures often require action to be taken. Even increases in client’s expectations regarding replenishment times and reliability of supply play an important role.
Both greenfield and brownfield site development present opportunities to implement lean supply chain processes. With an advanced supply chain infrastructure, space can be used more efficiently and resources can be conserved.
