Cible Distribution Services
Strategic growth and cost consciousness have led many organizations to embark on warehousing and distribution centers endeavors.

As organizations attempt to reinvent their distribution center capabilities, several key questions arise:

* What functional capabilities are required (e.g. cross-docking, flow through, stocking)?
* What value-added services will the distribution center perform?
* How will inventory levels be managed within the distribution center?
* How will unique product characteristics be incorporated into the design of the facility (e.g. seasonality, slow moving items, promotional items)?
* What efficiency can be gained by utilizing material handling and technology solutions?

Warehouse management addresses the planning and handling of products and inventories across the supply chain. An effective warehouse management program can promote:

* Enhancements to customer service
* Global standardization of processes and warehouse technologies
* Rationalization of inventory levels and investments
* Improvement in multi-site visibility of operations
* Increased efficiency and utilization of labor resources
* Improvements in in-stock positions
* Enhanced forecasting processes through better information and tools
* Availability of real-time information to key stakeholders
* Efficient processing of returned products
