Product distribution has grown enormously, not just in the UK but worldwide. Initially distribution meant the wholesaling of goods to the manufacturing and commercial sectors (B to B) however the growth of the supermarkets and out of town retail outlets has led to the formation of specialist logistics companies distributing all manner of goods from central warehouses. Additionally the availability of the internet to the home market has now enabled the consumer to select, buy and have delivered goods direct to their door (B to C). New industries have emerged and grown in support of this business process.
- Automated warehouses using robotics
- Just in time logistics operations
- Next day delivery services
- Web based shopfronts
- Software for ordering, despatch and taking payment
- Smart packaging
