So you have a warehouse network and each warehouse has its own territory with a set of customers it serves. You might do better if this territory is not fixed; where the origin of each order is determined based on the economics and service needs of that order.
- You can have at least three kinds of approaches to processing orders in your network
- Service-based territories, normally based on proximity
- Fixed Cost-based territories accounting for inbound and outbound freight plus warehousing
- “Flexible” territories determined “on-the-fly” based on the specifics of each order
