Warehousing: A Symbolic Element in Logistics
“For every minute spent in organizing, an hour is earned” Benjamin Franklin.
You probably would starve the whole time or keep eating trashy food if you cannot preserve your food in the most appropriate way. Sometimes I wonder how I fill my belly with top notch meals after a long day at work. I do not even need to do much as I make use of my refrigerator! So, while I am having my bath and washing off the sweat and grime from the 2 hours of traffic, my coconut rice from the fridge is already getting microwaved. Organized feeding process and eating of good food all the time is a no brainer for me!
Warehousing is like the refrigerator in our houses. Warehousing is an important function which involves holding and preserving variety of goods from time they are produced to when they are consumed. Storage of goods involves making proper setting for keeping goods in perfect condition without a reduction in their properties and qualities till they are needed by the ultimate consumer and taken to the market. It creates both time and place value. Warehousing has several benefits in logistics and some of these includes:
