The aim of the warehouses is the daily handling of the incoming commodity flows until they are dispatched, and to ensure the storage of goods without causing any loss of and/or damage to them. The warehouse has to dispatch the goods at a required time, in the required quantity and in a well-packed form in order to avoid any damage upon carriage.
Storage requires relatively big resources. Warehouses, personnel, inventory, forklifts, etc. are required in everyday work. For enterprises, which deal with smaller commodity flows renting storage space may be rather expensive; however, the temporary storage of goods may be necessary once in a while. Enterprises with such profile usually consider it more reasonable to purchase such storage service and focus on their own activity area.
