Distribution centers

From the Star Citizen Wiki, the fidelity™ encyclopedia
(Redirected from Distribution center)
Distribution center concept as shown in CitizenCon 2953

A distribution center for a set of products is a warehouse or other specialized building, often with refrigeration or air conditioning, which is stocked with products (goods) to be redistributed to retailers, to wholesalers, or directly to consumers. Can be owned by the transport industry, the military or other organizations.

Distribution centers are the foundation of a supply network, as they allow a single location to stock a vast number of products. Some organizations operate both retail distribution and direct-to-consumer out of a single facility, sharing space, equipment, labor resources, and inventory as applicable. Therefore, a variety of missions like Cargo hauling, raids and incursion missions can be obtained or targeted at distribution centers.[1]
