Warehousing is “transportation at zero kilometres per hour”; distribution moves goods from source to end‐user in a nearly continuous flow. The article outlines the changes in methods, procedures and management systems that can change a warehouse into a distribution centre without any major investment. These include new arrangements for product slotting, stock location, scheduling replenishment, documentation and inventory review.
