Supply chain fundamentals: distribution practices and principles

In this report, we demonstrate the role of distribution in the supply chain. First, we look at how fundamental it is to keep a balance between cost and service, then we explore the current challenges that face distribution. 

We also take a deep dive into the goods transport’s principles (Fronthaul and Backhaul), the different distribution models as well as various operating practices. Ultimately, we show how a distribution model’s success can be measured.
