Major functions of a warehouse
Types of warehouses
These are generally owned by the manufacturers, traders or distributors and are used to store exclusively owned goods as well as usually preferred by farmers near their fields, wholesalers, distributors or retailers near their territory, manufacturers near their factories, exporters or importers near ports. Private warehouses offer better control over movement and storage of goods and there is less chances of error. Beside these, product specific storage techniques can be opted in private warehouses.
These warehouses are for use by general public and anyone can store their goods in public warehouses by paying very reasonable rent. These warehouses can be either private or state owned. In case a private company wants to start a public warehouse, it has to obtain a license from the government. Moreover, the operations of these public warehouses are regulated and monitored by government agencies. These warehouses are very cost effective. They are flexible enough to store several kinds of products. Public warehouses offer better value for the money as the user pays only for the space they occupy.
The government warehouses are owned, managed and governed by Central or State government. They can be used by both private companies and government agencies for storage of goods. They are therefore, also considered a form of public warehouses owned by government. Government warehouses provide better security and safety of goods as there is direct involvement of government agencies. They are least expensive but require considerable paper work to be done.
