DC Design

Distribution centre (DC) design or warehouse design encompasses strategic solutions, concept design and detailed design.

The right DC design can increase customer satisfaction and lower costs significantly. To design an effective DC, objectives must be clear, challenges and constraints must be analysed, and all the relevant details of products must be determined, including volume, velocity and number of stock-keeping units (SKUs). Only then can you assess your options for your warehouse layout, automation, and warehouse management.
