Warehousing, it is all about storing goods for a certain amount of time in a large warehouse. Warehouses are specially designed to store products in bulk, mainly for a longer term. The goods are later sold or distributed. In fact, a warehouse is only the storage space. This is also the main difference between a warehouse and a distribution centre. A distribution centre is also involved in order picking and order processing, often including transport in addition to storage. They are often used by manufacturers, importers, exporters, wholesalers, transport companies, etc.

Handling and handling of goods, stock management and transport are taken out of their hands, so warehousing also means a lot of convenience for the customer. So that it can focus on the core activities of his or her company.
