The source region concept is a structural measure in which a number of different suppliers deliver goods to a regional warehouse (source region distribution centre). Orders from the ALDI central distribution centre are routed via such distribution centres managed by freight forwarders.
The aim of the scheme is always to send full trucks to the source region warehouses and from there to the company’s own distribution centres.
Transportation costs can be saved by bundling shipments. Furthermore, besides lowering traffic volumes, the scheme also contributes to easing the company’s own warehousing logistics.
