ABSTRACT
The traditional supply chain was predominantly concerned with the provision and fulfillment of goods to a store, a branch or possibly the occasional letterbox. In a modern supply chain environment, this emphasis has changed and demands on distribution have exploded in both number and complexity. Where once companies saw their supply chain as a series of stand-alone, one-way processes connecting the warehouse to the point of sale, the chain has stretched to embrace the end-consumer and an increasing number of parties who add value along the way. This article determines how companies dedicated to handling bulk orders to a fixed number of locations can fulfill single item orders received over the telephone, fax or the Internet direct to literally thousands of destinations.
