What are distribution centers?

Distribution centers are an often overlooked, but vital, component of the global supply chains that ensure the efficient movement of goods from producers to consumers. These warehouse spaces keep factories running, retail shelves stocked and e-commerce deliveries moving for millions of consumers.

Distribution centers, generally located close to major transportation infrastructure in key markets, such as San Antonio, connect the factories where goods are produced to retail outlets and individual consumers. Once products are manufactured—shoes, dishwashers, furniture, books, to name a few—they are transported in bulk to well-located distribution centers. From there, smaller shipments are dispatched to distributors, stores or, increasingly, individual consumers. In this way, distribution centers facilitate the efficient movement of goods.

Where are distribution centers located?

Typically, distribution centers are located at or near major transportation hubs, such as San Antonio. In coastal areas, they are often constructed adjacent to seaports. Some logistics spaces are located near airports that have significant cargo operations. Other warehouse spaces are situated adjacent to significant railroad cargo hubs. Throughout the U.S., distribution centers are often near major interstate highways and junctions, affording easy access for trucks.

How have distributions centers changed in recent years?

It is increasingly common to find distribution centers close to population centers. Distribution centers in more densely populated regions often have smaller footprints and serve a slightly different function than their suburban or rural analogues, in part because of the rapid growth of e-commerce. With consumers increasingly expecting next-day and same-day delivery, distribution centers in San Antonio are evolving into direct-to-consumer fulfillment centers. Highly automated and stocking a large variety of items, these distribution centers enable a small number of employees to handle a high volume of shipments and process returns.

What is the economic importance of distribution centers?

Distribution centers have a range of positive economic and social impacts in San Antonio. They enable commerce, create employment and generate tax and other revenues for communities. Today’s state-of-the-art distribution centers are designed for minimal environmental impact. In fact, the rooftops of many distribution centers are used as platforms for large solar arrays that generate clean energy.
