Flow-Through Distribution

Tags: Glossary

A process in a distribution center in which products from multiple locations are brought in to the D.C. and are re- sorted by delivery destination and shipped in the same day. Typically involving a combination of TL and LTL carrier resources, this practice eliminates warehousing, reduces inventory levels and speeds order turnaround time. Also known as a 'cross-dock' process in the transportation business. See Cross Docking.
