How to design and operate a distribution centre

It’s Christmas and there has been another increase in the number of goods ordered online.  So I thought it might be an idea to look behind the scenes…. This video from SSISchaffer provides an excellent insight into how they designed and manage the distribution centre for V&D, one of Holland’s top retailers.  It focuses on the fashion range of goods, explaining clearly the “push-pull” concept.  It also explains how the system is modular, so that its capacity can be adjusted to cope with changes in demand.
