Warehousing in bhiwandi is divided into various clusters called compounds.These compounds are developed by joint ventures between local developers and landowners or by leading developer.The compounds are maintained by local land owners or developers depending on their terms of development.
The factors which needs to be considered while leasing of Grade-B &C godowns are as below:

Leakage profile and waterlogging of compounds during the rainy season.
Basic Rent of warehouse/godown
Warai:- The labour component which needs to be considered along with rent.
Maintenance/Security:- The basic housekeeping of compound along with water and security needs to be paid in addition to basic rent
Fire & Safety issues:- Check on cases of fire in the compound.This is a major factor in getting insurance.
Electricity:- Service provider and load shedding history.
Labour:- Labour union issue in the compound is a major factor contributing to nuisance value and cost.
Transportation :- Transportation should be an independent affair sometimes the local union imposes conditions to ply only their vehicles.
Availability of forklift/hydra: Normally all the compounds have associated service providers of forklift and hydra

Godown in Bhiwandi can be a tricky affair and an informed decision needs to be taken to ensure smooth functioning of your operation.
Due to huge demand in Bhiwandi post-GST, there was a shortage of large ready to move in warehouses, however as a large quantity of land is available on Nashik road, rentals will continue to remain affordable for clients who are ready to wait. However, identifying warehouse with a clear land title is a big challenge in Bhiwandi. On account of small and scattered land holdings in the hands of several villagers, identifying a contiguous land parcel of the relevant size for warehouse development is a big challenge and which requires due diligence to get foothold in those areas.
