A warehouse is a storage facility where goods are stored. Warehouses are used by manufacturers, importers, exporters, wholesalers, transport businesses (e.g., airlines, delivery services), customs and other authorities to store goods while they are awaiting shipment, or until they are sold to retail customers. There are two types of warehouses:
-Inventories – locations for the safe keeping of materials and products that may be required for use in the future
-Vendors – generally large establishments which store goods for sale on behalf of others
Warehouse is a facility that stores products, goods, and materials. Warehouses are used by many companies for storage of goods and materials. A warehouse can be large or small and can store many types of items such as clothing, food, or vehicles. Warehouses usually have large doors on the outside that allow trucks to enter the building to deliver their goods.
A warehouse is a building that is used to store goods. Warehouses are used by manufacturers, importers, exporters, wholesalers, transport businesses, customs and authorities. They are usually large plain buildings in industrial areas of cities and towns. In addition to storage, warehouses are also used for shipping, packaging, and labeling goods. The size of a warehouse can range from a small building housing a small number of pallets to a large building housing many thousands of pallets. Warehouses can be made out of corrugated steel, aluminum or timber. Metal warehouses are generally more expensive than wooden ones and they require more maintenance because they tend to rust over time.
