The classification of warehouses is extremely necessary when this is the first basis to help businesses determine the goals and tasks in using the warehouse. Therefore, in the article below, CJ Gemadept Logistics will introduce the top 7 popular warehouses in the supply chain.
1. Private warehouse: a warehouse owned and managed by an individual or a private company, instead of being a public warehouse managed by the government or other organizations that manage goods.
In business and logistics, a private warehouse is a solution to optimize costs and manage goods, especially when products need to be stored for a long time or when the quantity of goods is large. Companies can rent a private warehouse or build their own warehouse to store and manage their goods.
2. Public warehouse: a type of warehouse used for storing goods that is shared by many different companies and individuals. Public warehouses are usually managed by third parties such as storage warehouses or logistics service providers.
Public warehouses are typically large and equipped with modern warehouse management systems and equipment to ensure the safety of stored goods. Companies and individuals can use public warehouses to store their goods for short or long-term periods and pay fees for storage and warehouse management services. Using public warehouses helps companies and individuals reduce the costs of investing and operating their own warehouses.
3. Bonded Warehouse: a warehouse licensed by the government to store imported goods that have not been taxed or subject to other customs fees. This warehouse can be located in a port or other area and is managed by authorized warehouse managers.
The goods stored in this warehouse may be export goods, import goods or domestic goods. When goods are stored in this warehouse, they will not be subject to taxes or other customs fees until they are withdrawn and imported or exported. Warehouses are managed according to strict customs regulations to ensure the safety and protection of the rights of users.
4. Container Freight Station (CFS): A CFS warehouse is a place where cargo is collected and distributed for export and import purposes. This warehouse serves to store goods and perform activities to serve the export and import of goods, such as collecting or separating container goods. It is similar to a "truck yard."
In short, a CFS warehouse is a place where various customers (but with similar or close destinations) collect their goods to be loaded into the same container.
For imported containers, the CFS warehouse specializes in dividing, separating goods from a full container, classifying them before transferring them to the owners.
5. Cold storage warehouse: This is a type of warehouse used to store goods that need to be preserved at low temperatures, such as fresh food, fruits, vegetables, and frozen goods. The cold storage warehouse controls the temperature and humidity to maintain the freshness and quality of the goods.
6. Hazardous Materials Warehouse: This type of warehouse is designed to store hazardous materials such as chemicals, fuel, gas, and other toxic substances. Hazardous material warehouses must comply with strict safety regulations to ensure the safety of employees and the environment around them.
7. E-commerce Warehouse: E-commerce warehouses have been particularly rapidly developed in recent years due to the increasing demand for online shopping, leading to online business models and online sales growing rapidly. Therefore, many businesses have invested in and continuously expanded the scale of e-commerce warehouses.
