Pool Distribution

No, this term is not about the distribution of swimming pools (though that definitely is possible). This term is defined as the regular distribution of orders to multiple destinations within a certain geographic region. Usually, they will be regular LTL shipments. From the original warehouse/manufacturer, goods are shipped to regional centers to be shipped out regularly to smaller local cities and clients. Instead of making multiple long-haul trips from Oregon to New Hampshire, a company can have a regional pool distribution center in Connecticut for the entire NE seaboard. Pool distribution is a great and cost saving way to make smaller shipments regularly to many clients.
