Many distribution centers have a flow of products that can go directly from the reception to the exit area, since they do not require any particular process within the Distribution Center, unless it is consolidated with other products to make complete orders. This need is usually associated with the handling of pallets, even though it also applies to boxes or items in a few cases.
A good design of orders fulfillment will ensure that these products do not physically enter the warehouse but rather at the information level, and that these are consolidated with the general assortment to fulfill customer orders, that is, cross docking.
