Warehousing is simply storing goods that will be sold or distributed later. Warehouses safely and securely store products in an organized way to track where items are located, when they arrived, how long they have been there, and the quantity on hand.
Often the terms “warehouse” and “distribution center” are used interchangeably, but technically, a warehouse provides nothing more than storage. A distribution center, on the other hand, stores product but also fulfills orders.
ASL does both, meaning, whether we distribute/fulfill your orders or not we can still store it in our secure facility. But, as described above, we also distribute your inventory from our warehouse. Regardless, we handle your inventory practically the same way. We receive it, implement quality control measures, stock and store the items, and manage your inventory.
In addition to storing your inventory and shipping out your orders, we can also help you move your sourced or manufactured products from the supplier to our warehouse as part of our add-on supply chain management services.
