Warehousing

A warehouse can be used to store items such as raw materials and finished products. The focus of operations management is to minimise stockholding and increase the throughput of the product from point of manufacture to consumption.

Warehousing can be retained ‘in-house’ on an owned onsite or offsite facility, alternatively the activity could be outsourced to a third party to provide flexible, cost effective storage on both a dedicated or shared user basis. Third parties can often offer a variety of services including bonded facilities, cross docks, automation, co-packing, integrated warehouse management systems and waste management solutions.
