  • A warehouse is a commercial building for storage of goods.
  • Warehouse is a storage structure constructed for the protection of the quality and quantity of the stored produce.
  • Warehouses are used by manufacturers, importers, exporters, wholesalers, transport businesses, customs, etc.
  • They are usually large plain buildings in industrial areas of cities and towns.
  • Sometimes warehouses are designed for the loading and unloading of goods directly from railways, airports, or seaports.
  • They often have cranes and forklifts for moving goods, which are usually placed on ISO standard pallets loaded into pallet racks.
  • Traditional warehousing has declined since the last decades of the 20th century, with the gradual introduction of Just In Time (JIT)
  • Some of the most common warehouse storage systems are: Pallet rack, Mezzanine, Vertical Lift Modules, Horizontal Carousels, Vertical Carousels.
  • There are two main categories of warehouse profiling, customer order profiles and item activity profiles.
  • Order picking is the most labor-intensive and costly activity in the warehouse.
  • The order picking cost can be saved by minimizing the travel distances through allocation of most popular items near input/output point in the warehouse and slotting related stock keeping units together.
  • Warehousing can be defined by three functions: receiving goods from a source; storing goods until they are needed by a customer (internal or external); retrieving the goods when requested.
  • Warehousing minimizes the effects of supply chain inefficiencies, improves logistics accuracy and inventory management, and allows product accumulation, consolidation, and customization.
  • The cost of warehousing should be commensurate with the contribution of warehousing to overall logistics performance - typically between 2% and 5% of corporate revenue.
  • In world-class warehousing these costs are minimized while improving customer service.
  • One example of this new technology is the gripper concept from KUKA.
  • This gripper is designed to handle significantly more than 90% of the product range of a grocery warehouse.
  • Advances in information technology such as the proliferation of electronic data interchange
    (EDI) usage have contributed to the modernization of the warehouse industry.
  • Warehousing refers to the activities involving storage of goods on a large-scale in a systematic
    and orderly manner and making them available conveniently when needed.
  • In other words, warehousing means holding or preserving goods in huge quantities from the time of their purchase or production till their actual use or sale.
  • Warehousing is one of the important auxiliaries to trade. It creates time utility by bridging the
    time gap between production and consumption of goods.
  • Warehouses provide for safe custody of goods.
  • Businessmen can thus minimize the risks to goods from loss, damage, fire, theft etc.
  • Perishable products can be preserved in cold storage.
  • Also,the goods kept in a warehouse are generally insured.
  • A warehouse provides facilities for processing, packing, blending, grading etc, of the goods for the purpose of sale.
  • The prospective buyers can inspect the goods kept in a warehouse.
  • Warehouses provide a receipt to the owner of goods for the goods kept in the warehouse.
  • The owner can borrow money against the security of goods by making an endorsement on the warehouse receipt.
  • By keeping the imported goods in a bonded warehouse, a businessman can pay customs duty in installments.
  • Central Warehousing Corporation operates 75 Custom Bonded Warehouses with a total operated capacity of nearly 0.5 million Mts.
