Retail is often characterized by a large number of SKU’s and variations in turnover. Products can range from small bags to cases and cartons of various sizes, to products too large and too heavy for one operator to handle. Seasonality, promotions and sales also put tremendous strain on distribution center operations.
Products and packaging can change quickly over time or can be one-time purchases. Stock may be allocated or replenished to stores to suit company strategies, but the overriding requirement is to serve the stores quickly and efficiently. DCS does it all.
