The decision for JIT will impact the warehousing operations. For example, if the management decides that the volume for storage to be reduced (reducing inventory cost as well as storage cost), this implies the goods will reach the warehouse and outbound fairly quickly. The duration for storage within the warehouse will not be long.

Not forgetting, there's also another practice called delayed differentiation.

It's a practice by manufacturer to postpone the changes to as near the consumption point as possible.

A classical textbook example is the laptop/printer power cords. Different countries have different requirements. Some are 2-pin plugs whereas others may be 3-pin plugs. The common inventory will be shipped all the way to the destination countries. Additional work is done to include the 2-pins/3-pins plugs before delivery.
