What exactly is distribution management?

Distribution management involves the constant tracking of a company’s resources to make sure that they are being used in the most efficient and productive ways possible. Not only that, but it is also the process of delivering a variety of products from the manufacturing locations to warehouses and/or the end user via a point of sale transaction. Essentially, distribution management is all about getting the right products into the hands of people who order them and finding ways to optimize this process and make it as fast and smooth as possible.
