When customers are satisfied with the service provided by the firm through an effective physical distribution system, they are motivated to patronize the firm. When the physical distribution system is effective, cost reduction is possible Producers are, sometimes, confronted by difficulties that may derail actions to achieve goals. These occur when production and consumption are imbalanced There are times when the market is flooded with an oversupply of a certain product. The effect is a drastic decrease in the price of the product. Sometimes, a firm’s management has to decide which channel to tap in the distribution of its products or services. When physical distribution activities are not functioning properly, the smooth flow of products from the company to the customers will not be possible. Maintaining an inventory of stocks is a requirement of physical distribution. Too much inventory, however, is a drain on the financial resources of the firm. This is an addition to the inventory and vice versa. warehousing is an important component of physical distribution.

The steps undertaken from the time the customers makes an order up to the time the ordered goods are delivered is called “order cycle”. Materials handling refers to the activities involved in moving goods over short distances into, within, and out of warehouses and manufacturing plants. Effective materials handling can be made to contribute to cost reduction and the effective flow of goods Customer Order Processing Transportation Storage Information System Inventory
