AnandTech takes a Tour of NewEgg Distribution

AnandTech lets us come along on a great photo tour of the NewEgg distribution facility.

Back when I was doing Industrial Engineering (IE), distribution and warehousing were considered the low end of IE work. We all wanted to make something, not put it in a box and ship it.

But there's some really cool IE when you need to squeeze every last penny out of your distribution process. Retail is always a squeezed business, and eCommerce even more so, when the barrier to entry is low and competition is fierce. I'll bet someday UT Austin takes over from Georgia Tech as the premier IE school because of the Dell trickle-down.
