For companies who mass-produce their own goods, having ample warehousing space to store all of their raw materials is not only important, it is vital. Production on a large scale requires an equally large space for completed goods as well. By making use of large warehouse space, manufacturers can produce goods ahead of time. This can prove to be extremely beneficial for planning the production of seasonal goods.
Having the ability to move these surplus goods into a warehouse, and get it off of the distribution center floors. This is crucial for any company that plans to scale its business at some point in the future. And for businesses that are not based around on-demand production, it is even more vital. Every foot of space that a company owns is a valuable piece of real estate. And there is no more valuable real estate in the logistics industry than that of warehouse space.
Minimizes the risk of damaged goods
Warehousing your goods is a great way to ensure that they stay safe and well out of harm’s way. When companies are shipping goods from one warehouse to the next, the chances of damaged goods go up drastically. The process usually involves the shipment of goods from the company to a distribution center to await delivery. That is a lot of moving around, not to mention that goods may sit in a distribution center for days before being shipped. All this does is increase the odds of damaged or lost goods. By having enough space to hold goods until they are ready to be shipped, companies can minimize the chance that their customers end up with damaged goods.”
