Fulfillment warehouses/centers will be defined as facilities involved in receipt of bulk
products and the storage, separation and distribution of those products on an individual basis to individual end user consumers (not retail). This use includes e-commerce activities, according to the ordinance.

Warehousing will be defined as facilities involved in short-term to long-term storage of bulk materials and products. Items are brought in and distributed in bulk with little to no material repackaging, repurposing or breakup. Warehousing will not include fulfillment warehouses/centers, according to the ordinance.

Distribution will be defined as facilities engaged in the receipt, storage and distribution of goods, products, cargo and materials, including trans-shipment by boat, rail, air or motor vehicle. Distribution will not include fulfillment warehouses/centers, according to the ordinance.
