Gate to gate

Gate to gate

A term used to describe the product boundary encompassing the fabrication and assembly of business and institutional furniture. For purposes of the assessment, the entry gate is the receiving dock of the first facility where basic materials used in the manufacture of the furniture, e.g., steel, particleboard, fabric, and laminate, begin the conversion to furniture components. The end gate is the shipping dock where the ready-to-install furniture is transported for distribution to the end user. The gate-to-gate assessment will include transportation of intermediate materials and components between facilities where more than one physical location is included in the manufacturing process.
