When I start doing business in Europe, should I set up my own distribution center? What kind of Supply chain models are available? DC, EDC, RDC, BDC? And what is the difference between EDC, RDC and BDC for my business?

DC choices

The choice for a central distribution center (DC) Europe instead of a regional distribution center (RDC) or Bulk distribution center (BDC) will differ for every company depending on required delivery ties, customer location and such.

In an EDC, products are shipped directly from production to the EDC (usually in full containers), and from there shipped out to customers.

Regional distribution centers (RDCs) are spread out over the European market, each supplied directly from production overseas, and each serving a particular regional part of the market.

A bulk distribution center’s (BDC) main function is to supply local satellite warehouses. The BDC itself is supplied directly from production.
