Cliff Holste: Don't confuse DC shipping volume with MHS handling capacity
from Supply Chain Digest
Shippers need to ship X amount of product per day. That volume can be expressed in a variety of ways, such as: pieces, units, cases, pounds, containers, pallets loads, trucks loads, etc. However, the order fulfillment conveyor system provider can only guarantee that the material handling system is capable of delivering Y cartons per minute to the shipping dock. The X verse Y metrics are very different.
