What is the difference between distribution and

by:VIPUTRANS     2020-02-18
With the assistance of various factors, the development of the express logistics industry is increasing, and 'transportation' and 'distribution' are the more commonly heard words in the industry. Delivery is delivered to customers, and transportation is a logistics process in which items are borrowed between the origin and destination. It takes time and does not reach the destination. It is called transportation. definition: Distribution: Distribution refers to the logistics activities of picking, processing, packaging, dividing, and assembling items according to customer requirements within a certain area, and delivering them to designated locations on time, as long as it is aimed at small areas of goods in the same city Transportation, which is a form of logistics, is more inclined to short-distance transportation, which is faster and can better meet the needs of many consumers today. Logistics: Logistics is more oriented towards city-to-city cargo transportation. It is mainly used to transport goods, such as cars, boats, and airplanes, from one place to another. It belongs to long-distance transportation and is more suitable for some large-volume cargo Transportation. the difference: The difference between transportation and distribution: 1. Different means of transportation and transportation According to the different requirements of the properties, weight, arrival time, and place of delivery, the transportation uses a variety of transport vehicles, and the delivery routes are various. Considering the timeliness and cost of the goods, choosing the appropriate transportation vehicle, the distribution is limited because The products delivered are generally rich in varieties and colors, with a small number and a high frequency of delivery, so short-distance transportation vehicles with a small loading capacity are used in one shift. 2.Activity range and space are different The transportation activity space is relatively large. It can be carried between different regions, different cities and even different countries. It has both short-distance and long-distance transportation. It transcends regional and national boundaries. The transportation distance is relatively short between regions or the same city. 3. The subject has different responsibilities and initiatives Transport passively provides services, as long as the goods are delivered to the user with quality, quantity and time; distribution should provide customers with active and proactive services, involving multiple service links, which is an organic combination of 'delivery' and 'delivery'. Arrange time for customer delivery as soon as possible. 4. Different delivery objects and functions Transportation is mostly for the transportation of large quantities and long-distance items, and it also has the storage function on the way, and the distribution includes multiple links such as picking, processing, packaging, sorting, and transportation. Usually it is small batches and multiple types of products. Geographical movement (for example: delivery). 5.Different technical requirements for the bearing subject. During the distribution process, customers will have different requirements for the technology and level of the distribution center. This requires the distribution center to make the most of information technology and network technology, and to closely distribute, transport, store, package, and transport through the role of the network. Connected together to realize the integration of logistics, capital flow and information flow. the same: 1. All goods are delivered from one place to another, and they are delivered by borrowing transportation means, which are all types of delivery services. 2. The process from receiving, packing, loading, transporting, and arriving at the destination is similar and similar. Complementary relationship between transportation and distribution: Transportation and distribution are line activities. Due to the functional differences, they cannot be replaced by each other, complement each other, are interdependent, and complement each other. The logistics system allows the products produced by the enterprise to finally reach the hands of users to achieve consumption purposes. , Delivery concept. According to the transportation principle and distance principle, large-scale, long-distance transportation is reasonable, but it can not meet the requirements of distributed consumption. However, small batches and multi-batch distribution are more in line with consumer spending habits. The disadvantage is that it is not suitable for long-distance transportation. Therefore, the two cooperate with each other to learn from each other. In today's era, consumer demand is increasingly diversified. Only by continuously improving ourselves can we meet the needs of consumers in many ways to better develop ourselves. A single distribution service or logistics service can no longer meet consumer demand. The emergence of logistics is an inevitable trend, and logistics is also a service that cannot be discarded. Once combined with each other, mutual benefit and common development, and becoming a new type of logistics and distribution enterprise can not be abandoned by the times.
