Types of warehouses

Public warehouses

Public warehouses are mainly owned by the government and are made available to private sector organisations. This type of warehouse is used for both personal and business purposes. Public warehouses are very technologically advanced as they provide accessible and affordable options. These types of warehouses are ideal for small and medium-sized businesses and eCommerce startups.

A private warehouse

A private warehouse is one of the popular warehouses that are owned by distributors, manufacturers and wholesalers privately. Apart from that, online marketplaces and large retails also have their privately-owned warehouses. These types of warehouses are quite expensive as compared to public warehouses. However, private warehousing services are in great demand in Sydney as they are ideal for eCommerce startups and medium-sized businesses.

Smart warehouses

As the name suggests, smart warehouses are technologically advanced. In this warehouse, the storage, management and fulfilment processes are managed through AI or artificial intelligence. From software management to robots performing such as weighing, packing, storing goods, transporting, the entire process of automation generally includes several things.

Distribution centre

The distribution centres are storage space warehouses that are mainly developed with particular requirements in mind. This type of warehouse is mainly used for temporary purposes and products are quickly shifted within the supply chain. According to the experts, a large inventory can be distributed and received to resellers as well as retailers within the shortest period.

In the case of perishable foods and items, they are often distributed within a day from distribution centres or storage space warehouses.

The importance of a warehouse is huge. It can be highly advantageous to the manufacturers, producers, importers and exporters. Generally, modern warehouses are very easy to rent and ideal for SMBs.
