Classification And Types Of Warehouses

Sometimes the business activity of a company may require the use of not one, but several types of storage: for raw materials, semi-finished products, finished goods, etc. The location of all these warehouses depends on the specific needs of their operation and the limitations or possibilities of each location and its surroundings.

The best way to classify individual (currently existing) warehouses is to group them according to common characteristics. They can be determined based on the type of product stored, the building used, material flow, location, or the degree of mechanization used in the facility.

Depending on the type of products, we distinguish warehouses specializing in rolls of materials, flammable products, sections, small materials, spare parts, perishable goods, and even warehouses for general use.

The classification criterion can also be a  building . We distinguish, therefore, outdoor warehouses, storage halls, basements, baggage storage Bangkok, silos or warehouses, cold stores, self-supporting warehouses (shelves form the skeleton of the building), etc.

What Activities Are Carried Out In The Warehouse?

Activities carried out in the warehouse mainly relate to the receipt of goods, its control, close transport (between individual zones of the warehouse), storage, order picking, load consolidation, shipment of goods, as well as management and transfer of information regarding inventory, flows, demand, etc.

Warehouse Items

There are many factors to consider when designing a warehouse. First of all, account must be taken of the stored product , the flow of materials or goods , the space available for storage , storage devices such as storage racks and handling equipment, the human factor (staff) as well as the management system and company policy. Luggage storage Bangkok has a complete design because warehouse items are not to be taken for granted.

What Parts Does The Warehouse Consist Of

The simplest warehouse usually consists of an entry and exit gate, a free zone for maneuvers and control, a storage zone for the distribution of goods, offices and social rooms.
