Logistics warehouses are often located at the producer’s facilities, importer’s port or at shared collection points for one or more units. The logistics warehouse is also generally located adjacent to a terminal.
What happens in a logistics warehouse?
Logistics warehouses are where goods are placed while awaiting sale and provide a buffer between the customer and the supplier, regardless of whether consumer products or industrial input goods are concerned. Their equipment also differs, from pallet racks to full automation, often with universal systems suited to a number of different products. Operations at a logistics warehouse are normally conducted by a single tenant or a small number of tenants, who may be a producer, wholesaler, importer or a third-party operator.
