Distribution Definitions (additional definitions coming soon)

Hub & Spoke - a distribution model.  Stock is held at the Hub location and then sent out to the Spoke locations (DC's) when needed. This model usually allows for reduced overall inventory because the Safety Stock is mostly held at the Hub, rather than at numerous spokes. 

Logistics - managing and controlling the flow of goods from the source of the production to the marketplace.
