Functions of a warehouse
A warehouse is used to store large quantities of products. Products stored are also kept in optimal conditions to prevent them from getting damaged before they’re needed.
Warehousing passes on the responsibility of maintaining the stored goods to the warehouse keeper. With such accountability, warehouse keepers must take the necessary safety measures in order to maintain the condition of the goods.
Warehouse keepers will issue a receipt to the depositors, which is otherwise known as a warrant. This warrant entitles depositors to acquire loans from banks, while their goods are in the hands of the warehouse.
Hence, warehousing can help depositors financially so that they can carry out their business operations.
In some cases, warehouses may provide services such as the processing of certain merchandise to make them consumable. They may also provide organisation, packing and transportation arrangements.
Other than that, warehouses may undertake the grading and branding of goods upon request.
Why you should rent a warehouse
Warehousing provides the preservation and safeguarding of goods to avoid loss and damage. Security staff are also put in place to prevent theft.
Certain products can only be produced during a specific season. Warehouses are able to store such commodities and secure a constant supply all the time.
Warehouses use the right techniques and necessary equipment to load and unload the goods when needed, reducing costs for depositors.
Warehouses allow manufacturers to continue operations without fussing over the storage of materials. Different types of warehouses have respective storage advantages.
For example, when you store dutiable goods in a bonded warehouses, duties and taxes will be deferred until the goods are released. This allows importers to focus on more important business processes.
