What types of Tampa Bay distributors need Florida distribution centers?

Tampa Bay is home to a wide range of distributors that service the local area, Florida, and far beyond. As Tampa Bay continues to grow, demand for goods of all kinds has increased with no signs of slowing down. To meet increased demand, Tampa Bay distributors need dependable third-party Flordia distribution centers to process and store their goods.

Florida distribution centers are used to store, manage, and handle inventory until it is needed at its next or final destination. Most Tampa Bay distributors use Florida distribution centers because their goods are in Florida or their customers are in Florida. Distribution centers are critical to getting distributors’ goods where they are needed.

What happens at a distribution center?

Distribution centers receive and store goods. Then when orders are placed for the goods, the distribution center fulfills the order and performs any additional needed services. Goods are shipped to the distribution center in large quantities, and often ship out in smaller quantities. Then the goods are picked, packed, and shipped for B2B or B2C order fulfillment. The distribution center may also perform Value Added services such as labeling, packaging, or bundling when requested. While there are standard distribution services, most distribution centers accommodate customized needs for unique clients.

Receive and store goods at Florida distribution centers

Distribution centers complete a detailed receipt of all goods upon delivery — noting any Overages, Shortages, or Damages (OS&D). After receiving, the goods are stored at the facility until requested for outbound orders.

Why do Tampa Bay distributors use Florida distribution centers?

Reduce operating costs

Since distribution centers (DCs) specialize in warehousing and order fulfillment, costs are reduced by outsourcing work to these experts. Third-party distribution centers keep costs low by helping to 1) minimize inventory levels, 2) reduce final mile delivery costs, and 3) reduce overhead costs of warehousing and staffing.

Create a supply chain that scales

Scalable supply chains are required for any growing distributor. It is often most effective to let a third-party distribution center focus on keeping up with your growing or seasonal operations. They handle all the staffing, space, and operations challenges without any burden to you!

Enable flexible operations

Third-party distribution centers give you the flexibility to supply more regions, stores, or customers with your goods using less of your own resources. Distribution centers offer flexible customized services such as packaging, labeling, or assembly to meet clients’ needs.

How does a Florida distribution center work?

Our Florida distribution center receives shipments, stores goods, and fulfills orders. Goods are delivered to the warehouse where the shipment is reviewed in detail to ensure the accuracy and condition of the load. Once received, the goods are stored until they are needed to fulfill outbound orders. Eventually, a B2B or B2C order is placed. Then the goods are picked, packed, and shipped to the recipient. At times the distribution warehouse may perform additionally requested services to the goods before they ship.

Distributors often work with strategically located distribution centers to minimize the amount of inventory they must carry in a region in order to meet demand. Distribution centers receive goods in large quantities and then ship them to destinations in smaller quantities. Inventory at a distribution center may be immediately cross-docked, stored for a short term, or stored until an order is eventually placed for it.
